On September 5, a collection of international students came together at the McGraw Auditorium to learn the fundamentals of American football. The group gathered at 10 a.m. and was introduced to the basic rules of the game by past CSU and NFL football players and even practiced our Stalwart Rams fight song.
Min, a Lory Student Center employee and computer information systems graduate student who attended the event had a great time learning the ins and outs of the American sport and the culture it represents. “It was a great opportunity to meet other international students, make new friends and participate in the spirit and pride of CSU and this game.”
After trying on football gear and throwing some passes, the group rode together to Hughes Stadium, had lunch and posed for a picture with Cam the Ram before getting a firsthand view of the Colorado State Rams as they ran through the gate to start the game against Savannah State. “It was very exciting; the energy in the stadium as the players and cheerleaders ran onto the field,” Min said as she recalled the experience.
