The 2018-19 academic year is about to begin at Colorado State University, but first, we have about 8,300 students to get settled in residence halls and apartments. On Wednesday, Aug. 21, students and their families started bringing everything they will need – and probably lots they won’t – to make campus their home away from home for the year. Staff and student volunteers are on hand to help with everything from finding residence halls and rooms to recycling boxes and fixing bikes. Members of Fraternity and Sorority Life are even helping haul stuff into rooms. The CSU Photography team is out and about, capturing the sights of this busy and exciting time on campus. Check back every day through Sunday to watch how we all get set for another year of learning, sharing and growing at CSU.
Move In Thursday
As students continue to move in to residence halls, and families find their way around campus, some may encounter CSU President Joyce McConnell, working on her selfie and high-five goals before addressing first-year students at Convocation.
Move In Friday
After Convocation and a rainy carnival, Ram Welcome kicked into high gear on Friday. Students met with their colleges before heading over the street fair under the bridge of the Clark Building, where they could learn about all the ways they could get involved with everything from student organizations and clubs in their majors to social media and centers devoted to culture, identity, faith and belief. The day wound up with all manner of fun at Ramapalooza at the Lory student center.
Move In Saturday
Students spent the day exploring campus and meeting their fellow Rams before heading over to the Rambunctious pep rally at Canvas Stadium. The highlight of the evening, as always, was the taking of the C-S-U class photo. The day came to a close with activities at the Student Rec Center and a showing of Aladdin for the outdoor movie on the intramural fields.
