Homecoming is a time for students and alumni to celebrate their journey at Colorado State University. But as a new student who has never participated in CSU’s homecoming week, is is difficult to decide what events to prioritize.
It is important to become engaged in the CSU community, and homecoming week is a perfect way to do that. Here is a list of events that are first-year student appropriate:
