3 things all incoming freshmen should do by May 1

This year, Colorado State University plans to move National Decision Day celebrations until later in the summer due to the impacts of COVID-19. While we support and celebrate students’ decision to come to CSU, we also realize that many students are reassessing their college-decision process.

Blog Header: 4 Things All Future Rams Should Do Before May 1

You’ve pored over brochures, scoured college websites, and toured campuses. You’ve gone through the application process and have been accepted. And you may have even taken some time to consider your options before making that final college choice.

You’ve done a lot of work to become a CSU Ram. And now it’s time to celebrate.

May 1 is National Decision Day — a day that future college students all over the country announce and celebrate their official college choice.

We want to make sure you have everything you need to celebrate your decision to be a Ram. So we’ve put together a few pointers to help you prepare for the big day.

#1: Make it official (if you haven’t yet).

Although you still have plenty of time to decide if CSU is the right fit, consider making it official by May 1. You can do that by submitting your enrollment deposit via RAMweb.

Committing by May 1 will give you more time to take important next steps, like applying for housing, signing up for orientation, and getting your financial aid squared away.

#2: Grab some Ram gear.

You’ve worked hard to get here, and you should be proud. On May 1, show off your college choice by wearing some CSU gear.

Grab a shirt, hoodie, pennant, sticker, or other CSU swag beforehand. You’ll have it for National Decision Day and also all summer long.

#3: Tell the world.

On May 1, we’ll be here to help you brag. Here’s what you need to do:

Check your email

Early on May 1, we’ll send you a special message with a custom ColoStateBound toolkit. It features different ways to show your Ram pride, like a shareable video, a badge to add to your own photos and video, and a custom Facebook profile photo.

Head over to social media

We’ll be featuring future Rams all day long on the Admissions Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts. All you have to do is tag #colostatebound in your post or send us a message with your photo.
