Virtual RSO Resources

Colorado State University is committed to ensuring the safety of all and has created guidelines and safety protocols which are listed on the CSU COVID-19 Webpage. Face coverings must be worn by all students and employees while on campus. For more details on when and where masks are required, visit the CSUStaying HealthyHow To website. 

  • Stay home if you experience any signs of illness or feel sick. 
  • Take care to follow health and safety guidelines in your living spaces and during social interactions. 
  • Be sure to complete your daily symptom checker every morning. 
  • A moratorium for all in-person RSO activities and events on-campus totaling more than 10 people will be in effect for the duration of the fall 2020 semester until further notice, unless approved by the Pandemic Preparedness Team. Consultation with SLiCE is required before seeking such approval.  
  • RSOs will be required to follow all university, local, state, and federal guidance for the health and safety of their members and the CSU community. 
  • RSOs are highly encouraged to develop an organization-specific COVID-19 response plan to mitigate any potential risk and/or exposure to the coronavirus.  
  • RSOs will be responsible for tracking attendance for contact tracing purposes at all in-person activities and events, including organization meetings, tabling on and off-campus, and gatherings of any kind.  
  • No food or drinks of any kind may be served at any RSO activity or event unless catered through a CSU entity on-campus or a third-party vendor off-campus.

  • SLiCE encourages all Registered Student Organizations to register their virtual meeting and events in RamLink. This is an effort to ensure CSU students can discover meetings, events and activities that are available to them. 
  • As you consider hosting virtual meetings and events, be sure to take the following steps: 
  • Place meeting and events in RamLink for approval as you normally would do for on-campus events. 
  • Under Event Details, when asked “Show To,” please select the most appropriate for your organization 
  • If this is a meeting or an event that is open CSU students, then select “students and staff at Colorado State University.” 
  • If this is a closed meeting or event that is only open to the organization, then select “organization members.” 
  • Public and Invited Users are other options you could choose if appropriate. 
  • When selecting, “Who can attend this event,” mark the box that says “open to CSU community” as many students are looking for ways to engage with other students during this time 
  • Add the virtual location (the Zoom link or other link) to this event – this is a new feature that RamLink offers 
  • We encourage you to continue to meet during your normal day/time for meetings by using an online video conferencing system such as Microsoft Teams. 
  • Microsoft Teams (AKA Teams) is a workspace for real-time collaboration and communication, meetings, file and app sharing, and more.  Students, faculty, and staff can create virtual meetings that can be joined by anyone in the world with a simple link. 
  • Microsoft Teams is free for CSU students, faculty, and staff though your CSU eID. 
  • There is a screen-sharing feature that would allow a PowerPoint or documents to be displayed and discussed as well as a recording option if content would like to be recorded in advance and distributed to organization members. 
  • Teams may be helpful for: full organization meetings, executive board meetings, committee meetings, interviews, one on one conversations, and more.
