Your Way to Connect
Congratulations on this momentous achievement. Your time on campus may be over, but your connection as a Ram is for life! We will be spending the next year celebrating your transition from student to alumni by walking you through some of the milestones ahead. Start this next stage of life by making sure you are all set up to stay connected and engaged for everything that lies ahead.
The Alumni app brings your lifelong connection to Colorado State University right to your phone! Available for Apple and Android devices, the app is a perfect way to stay on top of engagement opportunities, get campus updates, and bring CSU with you wherever you go.
Inbox's are overcrowded. Phone call's are for work. But Instagram is your full picture of campus life. Follow us to make sure you are in the loop with the latest and greatest campus updates.
LinkedIn is great for highlighting accomplishments, connecting with employers, and exploring companies. It is also an exciting way to get in touch with other Rams. Join the CSUAlumni Association LinkedIn group to see all the ways your classmates are making an impact on this world.
With more than 232,000 living CSU alumni, there are bound to be fellow Rams in your neighborhood. Ram Networks provide a way for alumni to find community wherever they end up after leaving Colorado State University. The college experience is unlike any other. You grow. You change. You become forever part of the Colorado State family. And no one will really understand that piece of you, that time of becoming who you are today, quite like those who share the same memories.
We partner with the Career Center to provide services to all our new grads after graduation. Services include one-on-one consultations tailored to your individual needs, which could include a resume and cover letter critique, job search strategy discussion, career assessments, mock interviews, mock salary negotiation, and more. Launch into your career exploration here.
Your Way to Engage
Post-grad life is not just about surviving, it's about thriving! We are tailoring our post-grad opportunities to helping you make the most out of this time of life. The CSU Alumni Association has opportunities to engage with you, to provide service and volunteer opportunities, and to create spaces for Rams to connect with Rams. The best news? We are cultivating these opportunities for young alumni like you!
It takes a lot to get the A ready for the year, and being a part of the annual Painting of the A tradition is well worth it! Join fellow CSU volunteers for a day of service and help us Paint the A, or join virtually as we partner with the CSU Department of Art to paint a portrait to keep the tradition alive in our homes too. Keep an eye out for registration coming soon.
We're inviting our young alumni back to Fort Collins and CSU for a weekend dedicated to you! As a young alum, we are building out activities and packages for CSU's first home football game aiming to help you reconnect with your alma mater. Save the date and join us Labor Day weekend as launch into the 2021 football season.
We are beyond excited to get to welcome all alumni and Rams fans home again for Homecoming and Family Weekend 2021. We know your last Homecoming wasn't quite as expected, and we hope you will join us in bringing back the tradition and pride as we welcome all alumni back to campus.
We are excited to continue to bring you Alumni Night In and Out- a series of events throughout the year designed to bring together Rams for a variety of experiences that celebrate our awesome city and spectacular campus! Check out our events calendar to see what we have scheduled for the year ahead.
Your Way to Make an Impact
We love connecting with you, but we know that there is not always time to jump into events so we are working on staying in touch and engaging you through other ways too. Don't miss out on all the ways you can make an impact.
One of our favorite parts of the alumni community is all the great advice and stories you share with us, and with each other. What sticks out to you about being a Ram? What advice do you have for others in the Ram community? Share your words of wisdom with us and help us document the amazing parts of being a Ram!
We work with campus and the community to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities for alumni to support and stay connected to the University! Interested in sharing your time with us? Let us know by filling out the volunteer interest form.
A teacher is...someone who inspires; someone who motivates; someone who leaves a mark on a generation. However you define "teacher," Colorado State University has some of the best, and we need your help to recognize them! Keep an eye out for the Best Teacher Awards nomination form in November.
Did you know the Alumni Association is committed to support student success through scholarships? We know CSU has some of the very best students, and we need your help to award these scholarships. Keep an eye out in February to help us review scholarship applications.
The power behind Giving Tuesday at Colorado State University is the vast community of Rams – students, alumni, faculty, parents, and friends – who come together to make a lasting impact for those on our campus who need help. Each year at this time, thousands of Rams respond to the call to support students who are suffering from food insecurity on our campus. Keep an eye out for an invite in November to make a gift!
