Choose Your Own Adventure

You made countless edits on your application. You waited patiently to hear a decision. And finally, you received a packet and read two simple words: “You’re In.”

Now that you’re admitted, you have a lot to consider. At Choose CSU you have the opportunity to customize your schedule to get the information most relevant to you — your academic experiences, your goals, and your interests. The day is set up conference style and includes multiple sessions, tour opportunities, and presentations hosted by academic colleges and campus resources.

Whether you already know you’re a future Ram, you’re considering your options, or you’re returning to campus for another visit, Choose CSU offers a unique way to explore campus.

Come early, stay late

The Friday before Choose CSU, all attendees are invited to an evening welcome reception from 4:30-6:00 p.m.

The reception, hosted at the University Center for the Arts, allows you to check-in early to avoid waiting in line on Saturday morning. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet with faculty and staff along with current and future Rams.

Additional opportunities, including campus tours, academic tours, and open houses, will also be available throughout the day.
