Please note: All 2020 Ram Welcome programs for Parents and Families will be virtual only in order to follow public health guidelines and prioritize the health of the CSU community. For more information on the student Ram Welcome schedules visit the following links: First-Year Students, Transfer Students, Adult Learner & Student Veterans, International Students. Students will receive more information via e-mail regarding their respective Ram Welcome schedules in early August.

Ram Welcome 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.

Ram Welcome programs for families will take place during the week before move-in, August 10- August 14 and also during move-in week, August 17- August 21. All Ram Welcome programs will be presented LIVE via Zoom and will also be recorded and available for viewing after the LIVE event.

For more information, contact Orientation and Transition Programs at orientation@colostate.edu, (970) 491-6011 or use the live chat function on this website.
