The University’s Ram Welcome program takes place during Move-In week to welcome all new students, parents, and families to Colorado State University. While all new students are expected to participate in their Ram Welcome experience, CSU also offers optional information sessions for parents and families. Ram Welcome programs for parents and families build upon the summer Ram orientation experience and provide information to aid in the transition to Colorado State University by getting to know academic colleges, meeting faculty, staff, and administrators, and learning about the many services available to support your student. See the University Ram Welcome website for programming for parents and families.
