Looking Forward to the Spring Semester

by Tim Pate

A new semester has begun at Colorado State University, and that means plenty to anticipate for CSU students. As the warm weather rolls around, students will get back in the rhythm of being a Ram full-time.

For freshman, this time of year means transitioning from apprehension at the prospect of new environments and challenges to excitement at embracing the next steps in a college career. At the other end of the spectrum, senior students realize that this is their last semester at CSU, which means charging into new territory come May. There are decisions to be made and opportunities to be had.

Spring semester at CSU is always a great time of year. The blossoming trees of the Oval never fail to provide a spectacle, and warmer days mean later nights spent on the intramural fields. It is also now that students begin thinking of their summer plans – be they visiting family, traveling or studying abroad, or staying in Fort Collins to work and take classes. Springtime shows students the multitude of possibilities ahead of them.

The College of Business too is alive with exciting prospects for students, faculty, and friends of the College. Events for students of all interests are on the horizon, as are career fairs and expos to get students connected with the business world. Keep your eyes open for opportunities to engage with the College of Business – the programs and events available are continuing to improve with each new semester.

This semester, you can look forward to these events and more:
