A Message to

Graduates Congratulations on your upcoming commencement! This is a great occasion for you and for Colorado State University, and we’re enormously proud of our students and all you’ve achieved. Photo courtesy of CSU Creative Services

your future. But the most important payoff from your investment is up to you – and that’s what you actually do with the skills, knowledge and credentials you’ve acquired at Colorado State. Our world needs you – your ideas, your passion and your commitment. We have problems that need fixing. How do we feed a world whose population is expected to grow to 9.6 billion by 2050? How do we safely and sustainably meet the world’s energy needs? How do we combat the rapid spread of disease in a world that seems to get smaller day by day? How do we help instill hope and a sense of real potential in younger generations that see these challenges coming their way? As educated women and men, these are now your problems to solve. The solutions won’t be easy or obvious – if they were, my own generation would have figured out the answers a long time ago. But I have full confidence that the solutions that eluded us are well within your reach. In that spirit, I want to offer a thought from the man who authorized the creation of Land-Grant

Universities like CSU more than 150 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln. (You didn’t think I’d miss a chance to quote Lincoln, did you?) In his now famous annual address to Congress on December 3, 1863, he spoke these words: “The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and so we must rise with the occasion. As our situation is new, we must think anew and act anew.” You are leaving CSU to venture off into the new – and that path is yours to clear and build. The term “commencement” signifies that the end of this phase of your education is not truly an end, but a beginning…a foundation upon which you’ll build a life and career. Your graduation is, indeed, a beginning. Make the most of it, and take on your future with a sense of confidence and optimism. All of us at CSU are proud of you, and we celebrate this achievement with you. Congratulations again to the Class of 2014! Dr. Tony Frank President

Congratulations! (970) 484-1107 | 1107 City Park Ave. | | @campuswliquors | Mon. - Thurs. 9 a.m. - Midnight | Fri. & Sat. 8 a.m. - Midnight | Sun. 8 a.m. - 10 p.m.

The outlook for the Class of 2014 is encouraging. Last year, 70 percent of our graduating students secured their first destination plans (either a job or admission to graduate school) by the time they donned their caps and gowns. Our students also left CSU with debt loads that were smaller than the national average, and 91 percent said they would choose Colorado State again. Still, we all hear stories about the barista with a Ph.D., so I wanted to share some other encouraging news about the value of your college education. A recent report from the Pew Foundation found that college continues to be a source of immense economic return to those of you who complete your degrees. The American Enterprise Institute recently calculated the return on investment of a student loan at 15 percent annually. And we know from the last recession that with each successive increase in education level, there was a decline of 50 percent in the unemployment rate. In other words, the hard work you’ve put in to get to this point is a great investment in yourself and

& CONS PROS of After-College Decisions By Jessica Fish College Avenue Magazine

1. Get a Big-Kid Job Pros: •

• •

Gets a career rolling. You will be where you want to end up even faster. Have big goals? It takes work and time to get there. Helps pay the bills. Starting to make big money earlier will also get you out of debt earlier. Looks like you have your life together. When people ask you what your plan is, you don’t even have to hesitate. Congratulations, you’re an adult. People will respect that you are responsible and envy your drive.

Cons: •

Don’t get a break. You were burnt out from school and then jumped into a high stress, long-term commitment without any summer, spring or fall break. Yay. Can’t explore your options. Not sure accounting is what you wanted to do? Well, you’re doing it. Stuck in one place. You probably won’t be able to travel much or move away. You’ll have to stick around for a while.

2. Take Time to Travel

3. Go Home

4. Continue in School




• •

This may be your only chance for a while. Once you get your career on its feet, you won’t be able to take much time off to see the sights. Travel can show diversity and experience that employers are looking for on a resume. You’ll appreciate it more now than later. Traveling is expensive, so if you’re comfortable living on a tighter budget, you can enjoy every facet of life even more.

Cons: •

It sets you back in your career. When you get back, other people your age will already have a full year of experience under their belts, which will put you at a disadvantage for the job market. The cost. Especially if you have student loans or are paying for yourself, traveling can be a financial burden. Not only are you losing the money you’re spending, but you’re building interest on your loans you could be paying.

• •

Saves you a ton of money and you can put that money toward loans or a new car. It gives you more time to get the job you really want. Hang out with your family before you officially leave the nest. Also, it reminds you how much you don’t want to live with them longterm. Pretend the real world isn’t there. Put it off as long as possible.

• •

Cons: •

Limits job opportunities. If you try to stay close to home, you have only so many options and may miss out on an awesome job. Can feel like backsliding. When people ask you what your plan is, it can be embarrassing to say you’re at home again. Just remember that many college students do it, so you’re not alone. Possibility of getting stuck. Some people enjoy being taken care of by their family so much they have a hard time leaving. Future spouses don’t like having to visit you at your mom’s house, FYI.

Don’t have to be in the business world yet. You may have to work part time, but you aren’t fully giving up campus life. Enjoy the diversity and benefits of school (like free gym and Internet). Higher-paying job opportunities. Will actually get another degree. Many people don’t go back to school even if they plan to because they get distracted and life happens, but going straight into classes helps motivate you to continue.

Cons: •

• • • •

Takes time and money away from building your career. It puts you behind others who have experience and a degree. Debt is sometimes more than you can make coming out. May still struggle to find a wellpaying job after graduation. You may get burnt out and not do as well. If you don’t know the exact direction you want to go, it can be a waste of money.

I graduate from college in five days. Five. Days. The past 1,460 days of my college career have been training me for this last one that’s supposed to mark the start of my bright future. After getting this piece of paper, I’m going to just figure everything out, right? Well, I’m waiting. You better hurry up, universe; you only have five more days. Because truth is, I don’t have it figured out. Next week I will have this piece of paper but no high-paying position yet. I struggle seeing all my friends get married or move away to big-kid jobs, and I’m left thinking, “what’s next?” And then I realize it’s whatever I want. I have nothing holding me back (except loans). Still, I can literally go anywhere or do anything. Because of my piece of paper, doors are opened. I don’t have a family that is depending on me to support them or the pressure of being a mature adult, and I am well practiced in being poor and happy. So I am not going to let it discourage me, but I am going to appreciate this short period of rest before the beginning of the awesome career I am going to have. I am going to keep moving forward, working for what I want and just be proud that I did something pretty amazing. I graduated college! And was on the Dean’s List. And had the greatest experiences. And made best friends. And this stress of not being exactly where I imagined isn’t going to take away from that. I worked hard for those 1,460.

Reasons Why Being a CSU Ram is Awesome By Marissa Isgreen College Avenue Magazine

Being a Colorado State Ram is awesome, unless you’re a Buff, then you probably don’t agree. Some of us love our school for the people, others love it for the experience. Here are eight different reasons students love CSU.


“Being a CSU Ram is awesome because there is a sense of community when you are here. There’s so much diversity and people are so welcoming.” – Suzanne Pendergast, Political Science, 2015

“There are so many opportunities! From internships to researching under accredited professors to studying abroad, there is always something to get involved in to fit your passions.” – Erica Maestas, Psychology, 2016

4 5 6

“I think one of the great things about being at CSU is having such amazing opportunities within my major (equine sciences). The program is one of the nation’s best, and I’m so lucky to be a part of it!” – Kate Alexander, Equine Science, 2014

“I think being a Ram is awesome because we have so many opportunities to become whatever and do whatever at CSU and we get to connect with so many great people up here.” – Lia Conger, Journalism and Technical Communication, 2016

“The friendly people that make my time going here worthwhile!” – Lauren Sauer, Nutrition and Food Science, 2017

What We Will

MISS or NOT About CSU By Logan Martinez College Avenue Magazine

Ever walked around campus and thought about what really annoys you? What about the things you can’t live without? I can imagine my life without CSU, but I can’t imagine my experience at CSU without these best and worst traits.

Will Miss

Design By | Whitney Hackbarth

1. Coffee shops within walking distance – if not in

the building. Caffeine didn’t always rule my life, but it definitely helped in the past few years to have any type of espresso drink available at a reasonable price. 2. The fragrant, white blossoms on the tree under Clark C. Have you ever noticed how Clark C frames the tree under it for the perfect halo of light? It is one of my favorite parts of campus, even though it only blooms for a couple of weeks in the year. 3. The people. I love being surrounded by people all working toward goals, inspiring intelligence and loving life so much.


Won’t Miss 1. Construction. Everyone keeps saying it, but

walking through construction zones is never fun. 2. Bad professors. I mean professors that don’t care about their students, don’t care about what their students get out of class or don’t enjoy teaching. Why bother working that hard to be a professor to not be devoted to the students? 3. Mile-high anti-abortion signs. Going to school is hard; everyone fights battles each day, and adding the stress of unwanted images blown up to 500 times the original size makes things worse.

years in review

When grads look back at the golden college years, what will they remember? The hairstyle they had? The clothes they wore? The things that happened? Here are a few events that happened at CSU, in Fort Collins, and beyond in the past four years for CSU graduates to look back on.

10 Things You Can’t Say Once You’ve Graduated By Kelsey Contouris College Avenue Magazine I’m just a broke college kid. This handy statement earned you pity points for just about anything, didn’t it? Unfortunately, being a broke college graduate probably won’t have the same effect.

have some free time.

Rain? Snow? Looks like I’m staying in bed today. College finally gave you the freedom to make choices like this, and the real world will give you even more freedom. Your boss, however, will not.

What is this “savings account” you speak of? It’s time to start putting money aside for important things like a house or a car – not just alcohol. (Well, maybe a little alcohol.)

I can’t wait for summer break! Remember those months called June and July? They kind of matter now – and not in a fun way.

I’ll use my student discount, please. Now begins the grueling wait until you’re old enough to get a senior discount.

These underclassmen are so annoying. No more categorizing people based on their year in school – now your peers can get on your nerves for other reasons.

Ugh, I have so much homework! Not anymore! Aside from all those realworld responsibilities, you might finally

Sorry I’m late! I got caught by a Plaza preacher. Whether you loved them or hated them,

your days of getting stopped and questioned about your religious views are most likely over. Nothing like party-hopping on a Friday night! The longer you’re out of college, the tamer your Friday nights will become. You might as well start stocking up on wine and board games now. Oh no – not another finals week! You might not remember it, but it actually is possible to enjoy every week of May and December, and you can even do so without absurd amounts of caffeine.

Alumni Association gives benefits to graduates by Devin O’Brien College Avenue Magazine Coming to the end of a journey that took place on the CSU campus and the streets of Fort Collins, many graduates will find themselves parting from the community and heading to post-college life with a new identity: alumni.

Networking Benefits

Alumni CareerRam – This particular alumni benefit helps both students as well as potential employers: • Alumni can search for jobs, manage employment documents such as resumes, schedule on-campus interviews, and view and RSVP for career events. • Employers can post jobs, search among alumni and students for applicants, manage on-campus interviews and register for career events. Alumni Insights – Alumni Insights are events held to network with other graduates and examine multiple career paths, as well as recognize alumni accomplishments. Alumni Business Directory – The directory allows graduates to find other graduates to do business with, to list their businesses in the directory for a fee and to search by geography and services.

Career Benefits

Webinars and Webshops – These internet-based programs allow alumni to learn about other fields and related potential employment options. The webinars are free and introduce viewers to new concepts, while the webshops are fee-based programs that take a more detailed look at specific topics. 24

Career Services – A service provided by Andrea Karapas, a licenced professional counselor (LPC), Career Services has individual career counseling, resume and cover letter critiques, mock interview sessions, career webinars and workshops. • To access this service, recent graduates can call the Career Center at 970491-5707; alumni beyond the first year of graduation can call Karapas at 970491-5494 or email her at andrea.karapas@colostate. edu. CSU OnlinePlus discount program – Alumni using this program get a discount on their first class taken in a Department of Continuing Education distance degree program. Undergraduates are discounted $250, while graduates are discounted $500.

Material Benefits

“Around the Oval” magazine – Published twice a year, with a 12 month calendar as the third issue, this magazine features stories about alumni as well as news about CSU. Members can also submit photos to be featured in the full-color calendar. “Alumline” electronic newsletter – Like “Around the Oval,” this emailed newsletter features news about the university and its alumni.

Friends in College, Friends for Life Four Tips on Staying in Touch with College Friends By Nicole Leicht College Avenue Magazine The last four or more years have been devoted to your life as a college student, whether that means slaving away over an overpriced textbook, balancing school and work to make ends meet or becoming a devoted connoisseur of cheap alcohol. Whatever you chose to dedicate your college career to, you definitely won’t forget the memories you’ve made and, more importantly, the friends you made them with. They’ve seen the good, the bad and the absolutely terrible, and somehow they still accept us. So, it is obviously not going to be a simple task moving on to your next step with or without these friends.

Fear not though, graduates; here are four tips to help you stay connected to your cherished college chums.

1. Social Media Soirees

It may seem obvious, but so often I think we forget. We are living in the age of social media, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. There are far too many ways of digital communication for us to lose touch with people over simple matters like distance or time. So, log on and live vicariously through your friend’s fairytale wedding or possibly their new posh city life; don’t worry, there’s no judging.

2. Go Back to College

Pay some respect to your roots, the place that made your friendship possible. Celebrate your past as a CSU Ram by dropping in for the annual Homecoming parade or attending a game (can anyone say Rocky Mountain Showdown?). Let’s be real; it will never get too old to rally with friends in honor of a time-old rivalry, a great game of football and maybe a beer or two.

3. Take a Vacation

Take advantage of your college friends living elsewhere by planning a trip to visit them. It’s the perfect excuse to take a little time off to relax and rehash some

of your best years and finest memories. Or, you could really commit and plan a destination vacation with your friends. Spring break: round two?

4. Pick up the Phone

This may be the simplest and yet most important of all the tips. It’s as easy as picking up your smartphone whenever you need someone to laugh with over your awkward encounter or someone to vent with over your bad day at work. Keeping your friends in the know and sharing life’s ups and downs, no matter how big or small, will help you stay connected and will allow you to grow even closer.

Seniors’ Advice

to Underclassmen By Nicole Leicht College Avenue Magazine

You’ve done your time and paid your dues, and now it’s time for seniors to toss those caps. It’s always times like these we look back and reflect on our best years. Whether they were full of good or bad memories, I’m sure there are some pointers you could have really benefited from. So, graduates, let’s take a moment to pass on a few wise words to your successors.

“Meet friends on your hall. Open door policy.” —Taylor Hickey, Landscape Architecture

“Get as involved as possible so you don’t have any regrets later down the line. Sleep when you are dead. And don’t go and do a major where you will make lots of money. Do something you are passionate about and will enjoy the rest of your life.” — Emily Kotulak, Landscape Architecture

“Meet as many people as you can, even the weird ones. My other piece of advice: the first week of classes, wear comfy shoes; you will get blisters.”

Graduation Guide | May 2014


15 things By Marissa Isgreen College Avenue Magazine You did it! You are officially a college graduate. You don’t have to tell people what you’re majoring in anymore; instead, you get to tell people what your degree is in. You get to call yourself an alum. You accomplished the four-year task called earning a degree. You go, Glen Coco! Soon Mr. Real World will sweep you off your feet, and it’ll be time to truly assimilate into the adult world. Don’t fret. Instead, spend the time between graduation and starting your career to check off these 15 things.

1. Take the day off. Sleep in, make breakfast and eat it in bed, indulge in a caramel macchiato,

2. 3. 4. 5.


7. 8.

take a walk, spend an hour in the shower. I’m talking staycation status here. When was the last time you spent an entire day doing whatever you wanted and didn’t worry about what needed to get done? Learn to knit, bake soufflés or play guitar. Travel. Get started on that portfolio. Drink one too many margaritas with your college buddies, and make plans to stay in touch. Update your elevator speech. Incorporate your new degree into your spiel. Buy a new pair of slacks. Purge your Facebook friends list.

9. Actually, while you’re at it, professionalize your online presence. 10. Give back to FoCo by volunteering at the Lincoln Center, walking dogs at the Animal House or cleaning up the Poudre River. 11. Adopt a dog. Or a cat. Or a rock. 12. Open a savings account. 13. Take someone who has influenced your life to lunch. 14. Watch the evening news. 15. Realize that the time after graduation and before starting your career is once-in-a-lifetime, and you don’t need a list to tell you how to spend it. You’re in the real world now, so do whatever makes you happy!

an Athlete’s


By Josephine Bush College Avenue Magazine

windy ones, a lot of runs we thought we were going to die on, and somehow we made it to the end with some story or inside joke that made it worth it,” Hanenburg said. “I like to compete and win, too; that was pretty neat to get to do.” After her senior track season concludes and she graduates with a biology degree, Hanenburg’s life will be filled with adventure and trying new things a division-one athlete simply doesn’t have time for. Her future will consist of skiing, climbing, traveling and maybe a marathon thrown in there. The avid athlete plans on staying active and will continue her passion for running. “Athletics have been too big a part of my life to just stop,” Hanenburg said. Being a student athlete has given Hanenburg an

identity she will carry throughout her life: a steadfast, determined woman who attacks aspects of life as they come to her. “I will miss college athletics very much. I have loved being a student athlete. It is where I have made some of my closest friends and some of the greatest memories... there is something really special about representing a college when you put on a jersey, even if all you are doing is running circles around a track to represent the university,” Hanenburg said. With weekends free and a little more free time all around, Hanenburg said she will take time to enjoy the Colorado outdoors, soak in the sun, try new things and always keep running.

For the first time since senior Kaitlin Hanenburg can remember, she will not have practice at 3 p.m. She will no longer spend mornings before the sun has risen adding in extra mileage or meeting teammates at the South College Field House for intervals, tempos or early Saturday morning runs. Furthermore, weekends will no longer consist of track meets, but rather free time or maybe even a little down time. A CSU athlete in track and field and cross country, Hanenburg has stayed devoted to her sport throughout her years in college, always pushing her limits and making it to the next level. “My favorite aspect of college athletics has been going through college with a group of people who have suffered some long runs together, some real cold runs, some

I will miss college athletics very much. I have loved being a student athlete.

A Graduate’s Perspective on the

NEXT steps By Amanda Zetah College Avenue Magazine


freshman and this seasoned senior have in common: we are bound and determined to do it all — no regrets. A big part of me wants to go back and walk up to my freshman-year self. I would take that silly lanyard off her neck and wipe her tears away. Pat her on the back and tell her that everything is going to work out but that it won’t be anything like what she expects. She would have laughed in my face if I told her what was in store. No, she won’t be a surgeon. She won’t even make it past freshman biology before giving up and pursuing her dream of writing. And then, her writing career would take a turn the minute she stepped foot in a small orphanage in Nicaragua. She wouldn’t believe me when I told her that she will have gone to 21 countries on her own in the next two years. She wouldn’t believe that after graduation she would be teaching English in Sierra Leone with the Peace Corps. She would be too scared to sky dive in the Swiss Alps or venture through the Red Light District of Amsterdam or try haggis in Scotland. She wouldn’t ride a camel in Morocco. So take a second, and figure out who you are at this very moment. Think about everything you want to accomplish at CSU, and go do it. Nothing is stopping you. After all, you won’t recognize the person who walks across that stage at graduation. But, the good news is that CSU will help to shape you into the best person you could possibly be.

Take a second, and figure out who you are at this very moment

Design By | Ricki Watkins

The person you were four years ago will not be the same one walking across the stage at graduation. Let’s take a trip down memory road to the first day of freshman year. Picture this: a mousy brunette wearing a carefullyselected outfit, tags still attached. She’s bound and determined to become the world’s best surgeon and is entering in as a biochemistry major. She walks out of Ingersoll Hall, gets hopelessly lost trying to find Clark A101 and sits on the bench outside of the Behavioral Science Building, crying behind her sunglasses — that girl was me. Fast forward to now. The future is looking just as scary these days, but this time I feel like I’m wearing an imaginary tool belt, equipped with the lessons I’ve learned at CSU. In the last four years, I’ve learned independence, resourcefulness and resilience in the pursuit of my dreams. Back then, that mousy girl had no idea that CSU would take her on a whirlwind adventure she never expected — one full of great friendships, great memories and great lessons. As many of my fellow seniors can attest to, it hasn’t been an easy road. I’ve failed a few tests, pulled a few too many allnighters and had my head in a toilet after nursing a few too many beers at Mo Jeaux’s on a Wednesday night. On the same token, I’ve gone on sunrise hikes to Horsetooth, studied abroad in Europe and everything in between — name it and I’ve probably done it. That sounds cocky, but there’s one thing that mousy
