We’re hitting the road to celebrate you

The Colorado State University Office of Admissions is traveling to several cities this spring to connect with you, answer your questions, and most importantly celebrate your admission. These Admitted Student Receptions are an opportunity have your questions addressed and discuss next steps you need to take on your path to become a Ram.

Attendees will also connect with other admitted students from your area and hear first-hand from current students and current parents about their CSU experience.

So, are you ready to celebrate? Find the Admitted Student Reception nearest you, select your date, and reserve your spot!
