Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center

Welcoming you home fall 2017

Serving as a place of pride when 215,000 Colorado State University alumni return to campus.


Your New Home on Campus Opens This Fall

Located on the northeast corner of the stadium, the Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center pays tribute to all that makes us proud to be Colorado State University Rams. It is a place for alumni, students, family, and friends to gather and celebrate.

The Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center is:

  • Your home for campus visits
  • a place to record your CSU story in the Ann Gill Storytelling Booth
  • an opportunity to share CSU and your CSU experience with family and friends
  • a meeting and event space for alumni-focused programs on campus
  • a hub of Ram pride on game days and throughout the year

Open House

Be one of the first to visit! The CSU Alumni Association is thrilled to welcome you home to the new Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center on Friday, August 25, from 4-7 p.m.

Historic Treasure Returns to Campus

The long-lost Old Main Bell will ring once again on CSU’s campus and will be installed in the Jim and Nadine Henry Family Tower, near the entrance of the Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center. The bell was unveiled in a public celebration held outside the alumni center on April 18.

Thank you, Iris & Michael Smith

We're profoundly thankful and inspired by a $13 million gift for scholarships and facilities from energy entrepreneur Michael Smith that includes $3.5 million for the new multipurpose on-campus stadium project. The Iris & Smith Alumni Center within the stadium will be home to the University’s 215,000 living alumni. Read more about the impact of these generous donations.
