Parent & Family Orientation

We offer a specially designed Ram Orientation session for family members and guests at our on-campus programs. Ram Orientation for Transfer Students is a one day program that provides a vital introduction to the Colorado State community and we strongly encourage family members and guests to attend.

There is an orientation charge of $30 for each guest attending.

Orientation is about giving students the opportunity to learn more about Colorado State, to meet with an academic advisor, and register for classes. It is also about families learning more about academics and student involvement at CSU and about how to support their student’s growth and development while at CSU.

Students and their families who have attended have repeatedly told our staff that coming to the session made the first year at Colorado State University much easier—students knew what to expect and where to go for assistance. Students also report feeling more comfortable in the Colorado State University community and making connections with other students, faculty, and administrators. Families felt more connected and knowledgeable about resources and how to successfully navigate through this time of transition.
