Officer Orientation for Student Organizations

Ever wonder about the many benefits of being a recognized student organization at CSU? The Officer Orientation for Student Organizations will provide you with all of the information you need to set your organization in the right direction and on the path to becoming a CSU recognized student organization.

SLiCE requires at least two officers to attend an officer orientation session (this does not apply to Sport Clubs who have their own Recreation Center orientation), but additional officers, members and the advisor are welcome and encouraged to attend an officer orientation.

During the meeting, officers will learn important information regarding the SOFA account used by student organizations as well as fundraising opportunities and potential grants. Attendees will be guided through the online Ramlink process and receive valuable tips to better facilitate your student organization.

The next Officer Orientation for Student Organizations session will be today. For the full Fall 2015 Officer Orientation Schedule, please visit the Officer Orientation section of the new Lory Student Center site.

Lory Student Center Employee Attends Football 101 for International Students

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.

Lee Brice, award winning country music artist, will be blazing trails as the first country artist to headline RamFest on August 28th at CSU’s Intramural Fields.

Brice recently had the No.1 country song in the nation with his RIAA Gold certified digital track “Drinking Class”, and the momentum isn’t slowing down for this record breaking singer and songwriter. This welcome change from the hip-hop and pop artists of past years was influenced by market research consistently listing country in the top three genre choices among students.

Even if you don’t consider yourself a fan of country music, you should highly consider attending RamFest to discover everything is has to offer. At $10.00 for CSU students and $35.00 for general admission, it’s a deal too good to pass up. Get your tickets now on or at your campus box office and information desk.
