We look forward to welcoming you to CSU! All new students are expected to participate in Ram Welcome! Please Note: Ram Welcome for the fall 2020 semester has been redesigned due to the global pandemic and with current health precautions and guidelines in mind. Thus, Ram Welcome will consist of primarily virtual components for students to welcome them to the University and build community with some engagement opportunities students can engage in during their own time.

You can access your Virtual Ram Welcome from any browser, but for the best experience, we recommend using Google Chrome. You can also view your Virtual Ram Welcome from any smart phone.

To access Ram Welcome:

  1. Visit the following link: https://canvas.colostate.edu/
  2. Login using your eID and password

In addition to your scheduled Ram Welcome (see session information by population below), you have the opportunity to participate in programming available to all students throughout the week of August 18-August 23rd:

  • Scheduled Virtual College/Department Welcome Activities for all new students. Students will participate in sessions specific to their college/major. Please find more information about the date and time of your college session on your Canvas Ram Welcome page, as these vary throughout the week.
  • Virtual Interest Sessions scheduled each day. A series of webinars with various campus offices(Involvement, Learning Programs, the Outdoor Program, Fraternity & Sorority Life, the Library, Rec Center, etc.) will be available for students. Please do note the frequency and times of the webinars as not all will happen daily.
