The Colorado State University parade is always amazing, but it’s even better when enjoyed with friends on the beautiful Oval.
The Homecoming Parade is an event that attracts tons of people from the Fort Collins community. What better place to watch the show than on the Oval as the leaves change color? The Oval is an icon of CSU, and it will be packed with students, faculty, alumni and friends as the floats march by. The College of Business will have a special tent set up, and there will be food, warm drinks, and chairs available – so you can watch the parade in comfort. This is also a great opportunity to build your network with CSU business professors and alumni. So grab your friends and spend some time on the most stunning part of campus.
Your lawn game skills could use some fine-tuning for future tailgating activities.
So you’re not the best Cornhole player in the world. Hone your skills with your friends at the College of Business so that you can become a lawn-game master at your next tailgate. Lawn games will be available for your enjoyment (and practice).
Soul School says, “Class is now in session!” And you don’t want to be absent.
The group recognized for their “tight harmonies, their non-stop energy on stage, and their choreography” will definitely be a highlight of the day. If you haven’t checked out Soul School online yet, do it now. The group is one of the premiere cover bands in Colorado, with a repertoire ranging from golden oldies to Lady Gaga. You don’t want to miss their show.
See cars that you’ll be hard-pressed to find on the road today.
The College of Business has gone the extra mile to feature an antique car show at the Reunion at Rockwell. With 22 old-school automobiles at the event, you’ll get to see some of the best rides from back in the day. These cars spend most of their time under lock and key, so this is a unique chance to see some rare, beautiful machines.
The College of Business facilities are very high-quality. Show them off to your family (they’ll be impressed).
Your parents know you’re at CSU to study business, but they may not know how the College goes about teaching you. Give them a tour of Rockwell and they’ll know that you’re getting your money’s worth at a top-of-the-line institute. Show them the ticker in the Rockwell lobby; the financial trading room; the central control room; or any of the technologically advanced classrooms. (If you haven’t seen some of these locations yourself, make a point of finding them this weekend.) Your parents will be fascinated to
see how advances in technology have changed the way we teach business.
You get *free* warm beverages and tasty food to match the occasion.
If nothing else, the College of Business Homecoming celebration is going to be a smorgasbord of good food. Homecoming weekend is going to feature some cool Colorado fall weather (with a high of 51 degrees on Friday and 49 degrees on Saturday), so it’s lucky that the College has some warm treats prepared for you. Grab a warm drink during the parade, or some hotdogs and hamburgers during the Rockwell Reunion. And what says “Homecoming football food” better than cotton candy and popcorn to complement your grub off the grill?
Homecoming is a time for fun, family, and friends. Have a great weekend and soak up as much CSU culture as you can. Be safe, and be proud to be a CSU Ram!
