Get The Scoop

Off-Campus life is excited to host the upcoming event – Get The Scoop. The organization will be giving away free ice cream to anyone in the neighborhoods surrounding Colorado State University. On Aug. 6-7 from noon to 3. Off-Campus Life will travel through different streets in the Fort Collins community.

The program began as the “Kona Ice Project” in 2013. Since, then the name has transformed, but the mission is still the same. The Get the Scoop Program aims to welcome both students and community members back toe the neighborhoods and new school year.

Come join the the rest of the community, grab some free ice cream and get to know your neighbors.
