July 28, 1997, was an unforgettable day in Colorado State University’s history.
A 1919 football game. The Old Main Fire. Any Warhol's visit to Fort Collins. The 1997 flood. Take a look back at the stories captured on film during CSU's first 150 years.
When CSU lost its first academic building to fire on May 8, 1970, it had been a tumultuous week, to say the least.
In the 1950s, when Colorado State University filmed its football games, promotional spots about various aspects of the University were added to the middle of some of the films, as a halftime break from the action.
Some of the oldest surviving film footage of Colorado State University has resurfaced in time to be included in the upcoming documentary about CSU’s first 150 years.
When documentary film producer Frank Boring took on the task of telling the history of Colorado State University through video in honor of the University's 150th birthday, he knew he'd have to start before the beginning, with the first people who inhabited the area that is now Fort Collins.
