Each August, the Colorado State University community awakens from its summer slumber to welcome the latest group of Rams to campus.

In a ritual that has been repeated annually for nearly 150 years, freshmen and their families move their belongings into residence halls painstakingly prepared to serve as home away from home. You can feel the excitement in the air as young people, eager to learn and grow, fill the campus with a unique and vibrant energy not found in other parts of the city.

Move-In 2015 included all of those elements – and some new ones – as the latest freshman class settled in. A record 6,200 students who moved into residence halls found the campus much the same as previous classes – with some notable exceptions:

By the end of the first semester, freshmen had joined with the rest of the campus community to help fill a record number of backpacks for School is Cool, provided food for thousands of area families through Cans Around the Oval, and witnessed the pageantry and Ram fellowship that mark Homecoming. And, as always, CSU faculty and students were producing life-changing research that will continue to make the world a better place now and in the future.

Yes, it’s been an amazing fall at CSU. See for yourself by reading some of the stories that continue to make CSU such a unique place. Enjoy!
