Students will receive more information via e-mail regarding their respective Spring Ram Welcome schedules in early January.

Spring Ram Welcome takes place two days before the start of the spring semester to welcome all new students, parents and families to Colorado State University. While all new students are expected to participate in their Spring Ram Welcome experience, CSU is also offering an optional Welcome information session for parents and families.
