Community Open House and Ice Cream Social

August 8, 2014

Friends, family, CAM the Ram, and ice cream -- what better way to send off summer and welcome the hustle and bustle of students back to campus?

On Aug. 13, CSU invites all campus and Fort Collins community members to enjoy free ice cream before the summer’s last lagoon concert.

“The Community Open House and Ice Cream Social is Colorado State University’s chance to thank all our neighbors and friends in the Fort Collins community for their support, and the warm welcome they provide our students throughout the year,” said CSU President Tony Frank.

Get to know CSU

Beginning at 4 p.m. on the Lory Student Center West Lawn, guests can participate in games, campus tours, win prizes, listen to live music and participate in a variety of interactive booths from various divisions and colleges on campus.

“CSU has a wonderful home here in Fort Collins, and we encourage everyone – faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters, along with those who may be new to the community or who haven’t been on campus for some time – to come out and enjoy a great summer night on campus.” said Frank.

RamTrax, CSU’s premier visitor experience, will host several on-campus tours throughout the event. Guests can hop on one of the Admissions tour buses and get a first-hand look at the campus’s world-class facilities, hear more about the prestigious academic programs and gain the inside scoop on all of CSU’s traditions. 

Lagoon concert to follow

Following the ice cream social, students, faculty, staff and community members are encouraged to attend the Lagoon Concert at 6:30 p.m. featuring Post Paradise. The indie/alternative rock group, comprised of Amy Morgan (cello), Nick Duarte (vocals), Mark Roshon (drums, percussion) and Chris Santolla (bass), blend rock with an indie classical sound, best showcased by the punctuation of Morgan’s cello.
