Announcing Our Outstanding Student Employees!

The Outstanding Student Employee (OSE) Award honors LSC student staff who have displayed exemplary work and leadership skills.

Behind-The-Scenes: Decor Contest

This past Homecoming, the Lory Student Center held an office decor competition around the theme of “Home.” To commemorate, the LSC offices decorated the 350,000 sq. ft building using the CSU green and gold colors.  The offices competed to win the LSC Decor Contest, where the best decorated offices had the chance to win an office party or specialty prizes.

Over the course of the week we saw countless offices spend days decorating their spaces,” said Hali Martin, a Colab: Lory Student Center Marketing employee who was tasked with managing the Homecoming decorations. “The offices came up with a multitude of ideas, ranging from serious to humorous. It was fun to see the depth of their creativity.”

The Homecoming 2017 Office Decor Winners:

1st place: Event Planning

2nd Place: Career Center

3rd Place: NACC

Over 200 balloons were placed around the Lory Student Center so that the whole building celebrated this past Homecoming.

The Executive Director’s Office embraced the Decor Contest by using cardboard decorations. To reflect the Home theme, The Executive Director’s Office changed the place into a kitchen. The cardboard kitchen also incorporated Cans Around the Oval, which is a food drive that is held every Homecoming and has become a CSU tradition.

“I think a lot of times we just go into the kitchen and don’t think about food insecurity,” says LSC student employee Marelino Castaneda. “It’s a luxury that not a lot of people have.”

Castaneda works at the Executive Director’s Office and created many of the office decorations for the LSC 2017 Decor Contest. Castaneda says that he wanted to raise awareness around food insecurity through the LSC Decor Contest’s Home theme.

Colorado State University’s Cans Around the Oval tradition demonstrates the difference one person can make. The University’s tradition first started when a single student created the food drive after reading about the issue of food insecurity. Cans Around the Oval has now become a community effort and involves both CSU and Larimer County. This year, Cans Around the Oval raised a total of 324,038 lbs. of food.

“Can you imagine if this pantry was empty?” says Castaneda, gesturing towards the cardboard pantry cutout. “I think it felt kind of rustic, plain, and drawn back, which stuck with with the message of food insecurity.”

The Executive Director’s Office didn’t miss a detail in their decorations. Even the time on the oven related to the Homecoming theme.

“We put the time on the oven as 8:15 p.m.,” said Marcelino Castaneda. “Since that’s the time of the [Homecoming football] game kickoff.”

This one-stop shop for housing will have local places to live in Fort Collins, landlords, community resources, and Colorado State University offices in order to inform students about housing options and how to successfully live off campus. Over 2,000 people have found living arrangements with the help of the fair!

This year, the fair will take place on Feb. 7 from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm in the Grand Ballroom.

Career Fair

Finding a field, creating a career, and weaving into the workforce is about to become much easier thanks to the Career Fair. This two-day event, presented by the Career Center, will host employers like Frontier Airlines, W.OL.F. Sanctuary., and many, many more.

The first day of the event is focused on Agriculture Science, Technical Computing, Biotech, and Life Science industries.

Even if you aren’t looking for a job right now, getting practice talking to employers is a way to build your networking skill set and plan for possible opportunities in the future.

Bonfils Blood Drive

Throughout the semester the University will be holding blood drives around the LSC. The first drive will be held on Jan. 19 with similar events throughout April and March.

Bonfils Blood Center was established as Colorado’s nonprofit community blood center in 1943. To maintain a state of readiness and meet the needs of Colorado patients, Bonfils has to collect more than 3,000 donations each week.

CEDSA Symposium

On Wednesday, Nov. 16 CSU will host its second CEDSA Symposium in the Lory Student Center. CEDSA, Colorado Educational Services and Development Association, had founding members from Colorado State University 42 years ago. This non-profit works to promote, facilitate and coordinate access to post-secondary education for all Colorado students, with specific focus on students of color, first-generation college students and students with financial need. To achieve these goals, CEDSA relies on providing a variety of opportunities and resources to Colorado students. One of these is the annual Symposium.

The Symposium is full of programming for Colorado high school students focused on access to higher education. The agenda includes a keynote speaker, breakout sessions, a student panel and college fair. The building is expected to host around 300 students and their high school counselors.

This will be the second Symposium Colorado State has hosted. The previous symposium was held in November of 2014, which welcomed a record 330 students, 40 high school counselors, and 30 college representatives.
