Fall Address

President Frank will deliver his Fall Address on Wednesday, Sept. 10, on the University's historic Oval. He will address highlights of the past year and and discuss the  University’s ongoing emphasis on academic excellence and a high-quality student experience, among other topics.

The University community is invited to gather at the Oval at 11:15 a.m.

The CSU Marching Band will begin performing at 11:15 a.m., with remarks promptly to follow at 11:30 a.m.

Picnic for our campus community

Immediately following the address is the annual all-University picnic, a free event celebrating and promoting the spirit of CSU.

The University Picnic was first held in September 1997 as a thank-you to the university community for pulling together in the aftermath of the devastating Spring Creek Flood. The event has been a university tradition ever since.

University classes will not be canceled, but departments are encouraged to arrange schedules to accommodate those who wish to attend.

  • Cranberry turkey hoagie: Sliced roasted turkey with cranberry mayo, provolone cheese, shredded lettuce and tomato on an 8-inch hoagie (limited quantities of gluten-free option available)
  • Traditional hummus wrap: Chickpea hummus, baby spinach, shredded carrots, cucumber and tomato in a sun-dried tomato wrap
  • Multigrain Sun Chips/Garlic Tomato Basil Hummus Chips
  • Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Closures, weather

The Oval will be closed to traffic and parking throughout the day. In case of inclement weather, check the CSU website for updates on a possible location change.
