Balancing Act

As incidents of bias and hate rise on campuses across the country, Colorado State is working to uphold First Amendment rights while also supporting students who are targeted and feel vulnerable.

Beefing Up

Rural Colorado lacks livestock veterinarians, raising animal-welfare and economic concerns. A new program supported by CSU will fill the gap by repaying college debts for vets who work in agricultural communities.

Our Mascot

Who’s ready to suit up for Game Day? Our two-legged mascot! Since 1983, select students have played the role of CAM with CSU Spirit Squads. Meet Dan Seaman, our first official furry – we give him a thumbs-up.

Keeping Him in Stitches

What to wear, what to wear? It’s not a problem for CSU’s beloved Rambouillet: Our sheep mascot has a team of volunteer tailors who spend their off hours creating “hot” couture for the woolly guy.
