Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and Get your Green On’ Fridays

March 16, 2018

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Rams!

Its a great weekend to celebrate Irish culture, hit your favorite pub for some corned beef and cabbage, and of course, wear green! On St. Patrick’s Day, wearing green typically symbolizes Irish pride (and helps you hide from leprechauns), but in Fort Collins, wearing green shows Ram Pride.

Every Friday is a “Get Your Green On” celebration at the Lory Student Center and throughout the Colorado State University/Fort Collins community! So no need to pack away your favorite green attire and that odd green sweater you wear only once a year.

“Get Your Green On” connects CSU to local businesses around Fort Collins and creates something everyone in the community can rally behind and celebrate, the CSU Rams!


There are benefits to wearing green and CSU gear on Fridays – such as earning discounts and freebies at establishments around town or being featured on LSC social media accounts, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

The requirements to get your picture featured and gain some Ram followers are simple: Take a photo in the LSC, post it on Instagram using the hashtags #GetYourGreenOn, and wait to receive a comment from the LSC Marketing Team asking permission to feature your photo on LSC social media platforms!

“If you are trying to get your photo featured, just make sure it is in the LSC and you are wearing green and having fun with it,” said Alyssa Nevergold, LSC marketing social media creative. “We are trying to promote CSU and Ram Pride, so get creative because only the best get chosen each week!”

Every Friday is a another chance to win, so show us what you’ve got! Be careful this St.Patrick’s Day and take care of your fellow Rams, even if that means lending them your favorite green CSU hoodie so they don’t get pinched!
