'May thy Green and Gold unite us, loyal ever be...' [Colorado State University Alma Mater]

Celebrating traditions, spirit

On College Colors Day, CSU supporters are encouraged to wear their green and gold to work and classes to show their Ram Pride.

College Colors Day is an annual celebration dedicated to promoting the traditions and spirit that make the college experience great by encouraging people across America to wear apparel of their favorite college or university throughout the day.

'Get Your Green On!' every Friday

Green will be the color of choice on campus, in the city, and across the state on Fridays throughout the year.

Colorado State University President Tony Frank, Fort Collins Mayor Karen Weitkunat and ASCSU President Eric Berlinberg are asking Ram fans to Get Your Green On in a campaign aimed at boosting school spirit.
