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.

Use your CSU eID to register. Review our website for eID instructions.

Note: Choose CSU does not meet the on-campus orientation requirement for admitted students.

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.

Explore Fort Collins and campus on two wheels

Interested in renting a bike during your visit? We’ve partnered with Recycled Cycles, a local bike shop and proudly owned by a CSU alumnus, to offer one or two day rentals.

Details including cost and pick-up location will be made available prior to the event date.

Where to stay 

We’ve partnered with the Hilton Fort Collins and reserved special room rates for Choose CSU attendees and guests for the Friday night preceding the event. Learn more and reserve for Choose CSU.
