PROUD TO BE A CSU RAM?

Whether you are a first-time visitor to Fort Collins or come to town frequently, welcome. No matter how long you stay, you are going to understand quickly why residents and visitors find Fort Collins one great place to be. Time and again, Fort Collins has been named one of the best places to live, do business, retire, and bike in the United States. In 2017 National Geographic named Fort Collins the fourth “Happiest City in the US”and it’s no mystery why. The city offers more than 300 days of sunshine each year, an abundance of outdoor recreation, and unique cultural events throughout the year. Add to that more than 400 restaurants and 25 craft breweries and you have a city with something for everyone.

Fort Collins is also home to Colorado State University, one of the nation’s leading research institutions. From performances at the prestigious University Center for the Arts, to leadership in clean energy and environmental science, and Rams game days at the on-campus stadium and Moby Arena, CSU’s energy is felt well beyond campus. Wander through the pedestrian-friendly streets of Old Town, enjoy the newest stores and restaurants on Harmony Road, and at Foothills Shopping Center, take a stroll through CSU’s treefilled campus, or head to the foothills for an outdoor adventure. Fort Collins is a city just waiting for you to discover.

A city of more than 165,000 residents, Fort Collins continues to be one of the nation’s most attractive cities in which to live. The state’s fourth largest city is 65 miles north of Denver and situated at the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills of the northern Front Range. It is named for a short-lived military installation established in 1864 on the banks of the Cache la Poudre River, which flows through the city. The original fort site is now adjacent to the present historic “Old Town” portion of the city.

Colorado State University makes an intentional, consistent, and annual commitment to the community and region and continues to be the city’s largest employer and a regional economic driver. Whether it’s watching one of the school’s athletic teams in action or participating in a wide variety of campus events, the University provides a wealth of activities for the community, such as the University Center of the Arts (UCA), the summer Lagoon Concert Series, as well as a variety of lectures throughout the year.

ABOUT FORT COLLINS Old Town is a collection of 23 historic buildings that served as the model for Disneyland’s Main Street USA. The city’s most recognizable feature is about a mile north of CSU’s main campus with easy access via the MAX line or TransFort bus service. Old Town features a vintage trolley, unique shopping and more than 80 restaurants and brewpubs as the city’s nightlife hub. Regarded as one of the nation’s most livable cities, Fort Collins annually ranks among the leaders in surveys of health, fitness and wellness. The city has also earned the reputation as an innovation hub by attracting entrepreneurs from across the nation to live and work locally. Fort Collins enjoys a moderate, fourseason climate with low humidity and more than 300 days of sunshine annually. The city boasts 600 acres of parks, 30,000 acres of natural areas, 30+ miles

COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY of hiking and biking trails, a wealth of public golf courses, plus a racquet center, three public swimming pools, an ice rink and several community centers.

HAPPY 150TH CSU will mark its 150th birthday with a year-long celebration in 2019-20. Established in 1870 as Colorado’s landgrant school, CSU had seen amazing growth since its first graduating class of three. Today, it is home to more than 30,000 students who enjoy a world-class education at one of the nation’s leading research institutions. CSU’s sesquicentennial celebration will include special events starting in the summer of 2019, including the grand opening of the Aggie Trail – a series of markers highlighting the history of Colorado’s oldest state university.

CANS AROUND THE OVAL

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

CSU, established just six years after Fort Collins officially came into existence in 1864, long has been the driving force behind the city’s growth and development. Not only is CSU the city’s largest employer, the University and its students are the primary economic and cultural players.

Cans Around the Oval is a great example of CSU and its students taking action on the commitment to outreach through the university’s land- grant mission. Initiated in 1986, Cans Around the Oval has become the largest annual food and fund drive in Northern Colorado, collecting more than 2 million pounds of food and $195,000 for the Food Bank of Larimer County.

CSU has partnered with the Downtown Business Association to sponsor some of the city’s many popular events and traditions such as New West Fest, the Old Town Car Show, where our engineering students enjoy highlighting their automotive innovations, downtown concerts, and other popular events.

It is a remarkable partnership 147 years in the making, and it has helped both thrive.

SCHOOL IS COOL

You don’t have to look very hard to find Colorado State University’s influence in Fort Collins.

CSU’s influence in Fort Collins, however, goes much deeper than simple dollars. Look at the beaming faces of more than 3,000 kids every year as they receive their very own supply-filled backpack from CSU’s School is Cool program. Or watch students work up a sweat collecting food for the needy during the annual Cans Around the Oval celebration. Or feel the community spirit as friends and families gather during the summer for the Lagoon Concert Series.

Like Cans around the Oval, School is Cool is a uniquely CSU initiative that has become an invaluable asset for kids in Poudre School District. The employeedriven program, which began in 1991, provides grade-specific school supplies and new backpacks to PSD to distribute to students based on need. In 25 years, School is Cool has steadily grown and has provided more than 40,000 backpacks to the city’s kids.

Colorado State University and the Poudre School District in Fort Collins have a long legacy of excellence in preparing students for academic, social and personal success. The recently formalized partnership agreement between CSU & PSD demonstrates the ongoing commitment of each organization to work together in good faith to provide diverse opportunities for the students, staff and communities of each organization. Founded on the principle of outreach, the University proudly continues that tradition more than 147 years later and continues to explore new ways to strengthen its commitment to Fort Collins.

ATHLETICS

EXPERIENCE CSU

athletics

Colorado State University sponsors 16 varsity sports – all dedicated to excellence. The Rams enjoy across-the-board success in both men’s and women’s athletics, and have positioned themselves to achieve even more in the coming years. In addition to on-field and on-court success, the Rams are the definition of studentathlete, with outstanding graduation rates among the university’s 400-plus participants. CSU also emphasizes community service as a significant aspect of the student-athlete experience, so the surrounding community benefits in many ways from Rams athletics. CSU’s record-setting volleyball program is the model of consistent excellence, qualifying for 24 consecutive NCAA Tournaments while dominating the Mountain West. The Rams are immensely popular, regularly drawing large, enthusiastic crowds that push CSU into the top 15 nationally in attendance each fall. CSU excels in both track and cross country, regularly winning men’s and women’s conference titles while producing All-Americans on an annual basis. The men’s and women’s golf programs are on the rise regionally and nationally, while the softball program cracked the Top 25 in 2019 for the first time in more than two decades. The football and men’s and women’s basketball programs are looking to rebound from challenging seasons and should be vastly improved. All told, the future is extremely bright for CSU athletics.

ATHLETICS FACILITIES CSU grabbed the national spotlight in 2017 when it debuted Canvas Stadium, the new on-campus multi-purpose facility. The strikingly beautiful and innovative stadium opened to rave reviews and set the standard for modern-day collegiate athletic facilities.

Not only has the stadium witnessed record-breaking crowds, it has become a centerpiece for the entire Fort Collins community. Dozens of events, from wedding receptions to corporate retreats to retirement parties, take place each month at the remarkably versatile facility. Canvas Stadium, however, is much more than a place to play football and host events. It also houses the beautiful Iris & Michal Smith Alumni Center and more than 80,000 square feet of academic space, including the Collaborative for Student Success, CSU’s innovative program dedicated to boosting graduation and student retention rates. It’s also home to the FORTitude 10K Labor Day Classic, the wildly popular race that debuted in 2017 with more than 7,000 runners, walkers and wheelchair participants finishing at the stadium while watching themselves on the massive video screen. Moby Arena, which opened in 1966 and has hosted hundreds of games and plenty of concerts and lectures in its 53-year existence, is the home of “Moby Madness – a frenetic fan atmosphere that gives CSU a significant home-court advantage. Men’s and women’s basketball, along with the volleyball program, call Moby and its nearly 9,000 seats home. Women’s tennis has its home at the CSU tennis facility south of the main campus, while Jack Christiansen Track was recently renovated and stands as the finest facility in the region for track and field. The women’s soccer program debuted its new field south of Moby Arena in 2017. CSU also has an indoor practice facility used by all sports, as well as the Anderson Academic and Training Center at the McGraw Athletic Center.

GETTING AROUND FORT COLLINS BUS SERVICE

BIKE

All CSU students and employees receive a free transit pass for the City of Fort Collins’ Transfort bus system, including the MAX bus rapid transit system. Transfort provides our students the opportunity to attend college without the economic burden of a personal vehicle. With a multitude of stops close to student living areas, Old Town, grocery stores, restaurants, and recreation activities are minutes away.

Fort Collins is designated one of three Platinum-rated Bicycle Friendly Communities in the nation, and Colorado State University a Silver-rated Bicycle Friendly University, by the League of American Bicyclists.

The Mason Trail provides convenient access through campus to Old Town and South Campus (the Veterinary Teaching Hospital). Visitors may wish to check out a free bike at the Fort Collins Bike Library at the city’s Downtown Transit Station or on campus at Surplus Property on Lake Street.

The CSU Transit Center was the first LEED Gold Certified building in Fort Collins. It is located at the north end of the Lory Student Center on the CSU campus and includes benches, schedule boards, info center, and a convenience store. Here you can catch the free campus shuttle – Around the Horn – that loops between stops across campus every 10 minutes during the academic year. Fort Collin’s seven-mile bus rapid transit system called MAX travels north to south along Mason Street, through the heart of campus, and connects our main campus to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital on our south campus. It also connects campus to Old Town to the north and south to the end of town. MAX, with regular stops on and near campus, also connects students to rental housing opportunities across Fort Collins.

YOUVISIT.COM/TOUR/COLOSTATE LAUREL VILLAGE

The hub of campus life for more than 50 years, the Lory Student Center revitalization helps hold its place as one of the nation’s top student centers.

THE OVAL

2019-2020 VISITORS GUIDE

14

The Oval’s elm-shaded paths provide a pleasant space for visitors and students alike to amble, study, or relax. During his long tenure (190940), President Charles A. Lory conceived of the Oval to unify the CSU campus. Ringing the Oval are the University’s most historic buildings, including – counterclockwise from Ammons Hall (1921): The Institute for Learning and Teaching, formerly the Music Building (1927), the Weber Building (1922); the Statistics Building (1910); the Wagar Building (1939); the Administration Building (1924); Johnson Hall (1935); the Gibbons Building (1903); the Occupational Therapy Building (1919); Laurel Hall (1882); Guggenheim Hall (1910); and Danforth Chapel (1954). As the college grew into a university, the campus expanded westward.

THE LAGOON Many students find this a pleasant place to linger and enjoy the view of the foothills; it is also the site of the University’s free summer Lagoon Concert series. As you cross the Vietnam Memorial Bridge, think of Old Main, the first academic building on campus. After it burned down in 1970, some of its bricks were incorporated into the bridge.

UNIVERSITY CENTER FOR THE ARTS

STUDENT REC CENTER Students can take advantage of the climbing wall and bouldering cave, extensive weight and cardio exercise equipment, aquatic center, basketball/volleyball courts, fitness studios, and an indoor track, as well as outdoor courts for basketball, volleyball, and inline hockey. Personal trainers are available to help build an individualized fitness regimen.

CSU HEALTH AND MEDICAL CENTER Student health services are fully staffed and equipped to provide comprehensive outpatient care and counseling for students.

This world-class facility consolidates music, dance, and theatre programs into one exquisite performance and learning venue, along with the new University Art Museum and the Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising. The UCA is a regional cultural resource that includes concert and recital halls, theaters, museums and galleries, classrooms, offices, and research facilities.

ANNUAL FLOWER TRIAL GARDENS Stroll through fragrant gardens where the CSU Department of Horticulture tests more than 1,000 annual bedding plants under rugged Rocky Mountain conditions. Since 2007, new perennial varieties have also been tested for hardiness as well as beauty.

OUR STORY

OWNED BY

NoCo NOSH started when the national for-profit delivery services became too expensive for restaurants to afford. NoCo NOSH is a partnership of all of the best independent restaurants in the NoCo region that invested to create their own delivery service, which will charge restaurants less than half of what the national services (GrubHub/UberEats/DoorDash) charge. The local independent restaurants not only own the service but also oversee its daily operations.
