Welcome back, Rams. This is what Move-In 2016, with a record number of students returning to the Colorado State campus,  looked like.

More than 2,000 students moved in to the residence halls, joining the 900 or so taking their place in the new Aggie Village North Apartments that opened on Aug. 8.

In addition to more than 4,000 students moving into the residence halls, Ram Welcome kicked off with special welcomes for adult, veteran and transfer students, Convocation, and the Student and Family Picnic and Carnival, presented by the Alumni Association.

 

Friday, Aug. 19

The day started with the Street Fair, where new students could explore the many, many interest options available on campus — and meet CAM the Ram in the fleece. After lunch on Monfort Quad, there were college welcomes, open houses at the Student Diversity offices, and a chance to explore the Lory Student Center as part of Ramapalooza.

Everyone had a great, rowdy time at the Rambunctious Pep Rally in Moby Arena, then moved on to A Night at the Rec for more fun and games.

 

Sunday, Aug. 21

The day before classes start, new Rams had the opportunity to register their bikes, learn about how to ride safely on campus and how to maintain their rides at We Ride, and then take one more walk around to make sure they knew where all their classes would be held.

Let the semester begin!
