Fall Involvement Expo Aug. 31 - Sept. 1

August 27, 2010

The Student Involvement Expo has existed in a variety of forms for over 20 years. Formerly known as Centertainment, then known as the Student Involvement Fair, and now known as the Involvement Expo, this event has existed in its current form for the past 4 years. It continues to be a huge success.

End of summer... sunny plaza... perfect time and place for the Involvement Expo! 

Student Leadership, Involvement, and Civic Engagement (SLiCE) Coordinator Deanna Leone thinks it's important for all students to attend the Student Involement Expo. The research shows why.

Leone helps coordinate the Student Involvement Expo which helps students get involved.

"We also find that students who get involved have better access to resources and have a more positive experience while in college."

CSU’s Registered Student Organizations and local community agencies are invited to use this event to:

  • Market their organization
  • Highlight upcoming meetings and events
  •  Increase membership and volunteering

"We wanted to share opportunities through both “Registered Student Organizations” and community service/volunteer opportunities with our local service agencies here in Fort Collins."

"Students should attend the Involvement Expo because it is a great way to find a Registered Student Organization to join or a local community agency to volunteer with," says SLiCE coordinator Brett Rundle. "There will be over 200 agencies and organizations at the event, and the Expo should have something to meet the needs and interests of all first-year students. "

What to expect

The Expo showcases a diverse array of involvement possibilities with over 150 Registered Student Organizations and 50 community agencies attending each year.
  The student groups and community agencies come in a variety of types such as:

  • pre-professional clubs
  • culturally diverse clubs
  • Greek life
  • social organizations
  • religious organizations
  • political groups
  • animal shelters
  • youth services
  • health & social services
  • United Way
