Spring Break 2010 adventures

March 12, 2010

For CSU Students, it's time for a break to enjoy the beautiful weather of spring time. If you're not booked for a trip to Mexico, then there is still plenty to do around Fort Collins and CSU.

Not all of us are able to soak up the sun with friends in Cancun or Miami but then what are you supposed to do? No worries, tanning is overrated anyway. CSU, Fort Collins and Colorado have all the necessities to make this spring break one of the best.

With the Rocky Mountains as nature’s backdrop, the Stihl Timbersports Collegiate Series presented by Carhartt brings its Western Collegiate Challenge, the premier wood-cutting, heart-pumping collegiate lumberjack competition, and the ESPNU cameras to Colorado State University’s campus in Fort Collins, Colo. Friday, March 19. Read more about the event and see a list of all the competitors here.
