The Ram Welcome experience trully is one-of-a-kind. It offers new first-year and transfer students the opportunity to meet other students and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Annually, new first-year and transfer students get the opportunity to experience Ram Welcome and become a part of the Ram family. They get to meet with other students, explore academic programs, get to know their advisor, become a part of the traditions and learn about the many services offered for students here at CSU.
