I Love CSU Day

April 14, 2009

I Love CSU Day encourages the campus community to celebrate CSU.

This program was started by the Student Alumni Connection in 2001. This year, I Love CSU Day is officially on Saturday, April 18 but the campus celebration will take place on Friday, April 17.

Students should look forward to “RAMdom act of kindness” where CSU gifts are left around campus for people to find and keep, CSU giveaways on the Plaza, and pictures with the four-legged CAM on the plaza.

Students should also be prepared with reasons they love CSU to write on the “Why I Love CSU” message board that will be on the Plaza.

Be sure to deck yourself out in your CSU Ram gear and show your pride!

I Love CSU Day is a part of Celebrate Colorado State! which takes place during the month of April. View more events on the Celebrate Colorado State! website.

Every year, the Student Alumni Connection drafts a proclamation for the governor to sign, officially proclaiming I Love CSU Day as a state holiday.
