Colorado State University admin building

January 23-24, 2020

You’ve already accomplished a lot — but we’re more excited to see what you’ll do next. As one of Colorado’s future leaders, we look forward to meeting you and would like to invite you to visit campus to celebrate your selection as a Boettcher Semifinalist.

We’ve gathered faculty, college representatives, and Boettcher scholars just like you to highlight the opportunities you have available here at CSU.

Over the course of this exciting two-day event, complete with complimentary meal and hotel accommodations provided by CSU, you and your family will have the opportunity to dine in historic Old Town Fort Collins, attend mock lectures and student panels, engage with the college/department of your choice during a tailored academic experience, and interact with fellow Boettcher candidates and current scholars.

The event also includes lunch in an on-campus dining hall and a parent/family info session focused on next steps, financial aid, and scholarships.

Even if you’ve visited Colorado State University before, you haven’t visited like this. Join us and find out what “Proud to Be” truly means.
