Housing Fair

Finding the right kind of housing can be a difficult feat. There’s apartments, condos, houses for rent, short term living options and much more. If you’re a little lost on where to start, The Housing Fair will have the solutions you’re looking for!

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. The second day is geared towards Communications, Business, Social Services, Liberal Arts, Hospitality/Tourism, Health/Wellness industries. However, students should focus on the field they want to go into, not necessarily what their major is.

To be prepared to meet with employers, it is strongly recommended that you download the Fairs App. The application houses all of the information on attending employers, what days they will be attending, and details of the business they represent!

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.

The Career Fair will be held on Feb. 14 and 15 from 10:30-3:30 am in the Grand Ballroom.

Stop by the donation events throughout the spring semester to help use save and enhance lives throughout the CSU, Fort Collins, and Colorado communities.

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.

The 38th annual Math Day will be held in the Lory Student Center on Nov. 3. Since 1997, the Mathematics department has hosted this event. Math Day attracts 300 to 400 of the best high school math students from Colorado and neighboring states.

Math Day highlights the university to attract incoming students through different competitions and campus informational sessions. This annual event gives the Department an opportunity to maintain close relationships with Colorado secondary schools, and allows for new ties to be formed with neighboring states. The PROBE (Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Efforts) examination rewards the 10 ten highest scoring students with scholarships at CSU as mathematics majors.

Math Day promotes interest and rewards excellence in mathematics, creates relationships with other mathematic departments, and recruits excellent mathematics students to Colorado State University.

34th Annual Pow Wow

The 34th Annual Pow Wow will be held in the Lory Student Center Grand Ballroom on Oct. 30. This event is free and open to everyone as a drop-in event. Pow Wows are a way Native Americans meet and join together in dancing, singing, traveling to new locations, reconnecting with old friends, and meeting new friends. It usually a way of persevering Native American’s rich culture and sharing with its local community.

This event happens every year within the first weekend of November as a way to start Native American heritage month. The Pow Wow serves a great way to gather Native American’s all over Colorado, and share the culture with CSU and the community of Fort Collins through music, food, and art work.

This Pow Wow will be centered around two different drumming styles. Elk Solider, a Native drum group from South Dakota, and Bad Company, a local Fort Collins drum group, will be performing during the event. There will be a variety of dancing styles including: Women’s Traditional, Jingle, Shwal, Feather, Grass, and Men’s Traditional. The Pow Wow is one of the many ways history and tradition can be preserved.

CSU Dance Marathon

The CSU Dance Marathon will be held on October 22nd in the Lory Student Center Theatre. Dance Marathon, which first made its way to CSU in 2012, is part of a nationwide fundraiser for The Children’s Miracle Network. The Children’s Miracle Network raises funds for Children’s Hospitals and medical research.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is the only national children’s charity committed to having 100% of the funds raised staying local. This means all of the money raised through CSU’s Dance Marathon will support the families and children struggling with life-threatening illnesses in Colorado.

The hospitals treat over 17 million patients a year. 98% of children needing heart or lung transplants are treated through the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The hospitals also treat 88% of all children with cancer, 76% of all children with cystic fibrosis, 90% of all children with sickle cell anemia, and 72% of all children with pediatric AIDS. The CSU Dance marathon provides a chance for students to connect with children involved with the hospitals, learn more about the work the fundraising does while making sure all of the funds will support the local community.

Participants raise money leading up to the event. Then, on the day of the marathon, participants dance for 10 hours straight. During the marathon, children who have been impacted by the program have a chance to tell their stories. Donations are accepted up until the end of the marathon. This year’s event starts at noon. The event is centered on dancing “For the Kids” who cannot dance themselves.

Last year’s event raised over $11,000 directly benefiting Children’s Hospital Colorado. For more information on signing up or donating click here.
