Congratulations on becoming a Ram, and welcome to the biggest and best family you’ll ever be a part of. Our names are Nigel Daniels and Andrew Olson, and we’re your elected Associated Students of Colorado State University president and vice president. Our jobs are to work day in and day out this year to make your college experience the absolute best it could be.
We are thrilled to have you, the Class of 2017, in the Ram family. As you are being educated on all of the great traditions that unite us as proud Rams throughout the weeks leading up to the first day of fall semester classes, we encourage you to take advantage of every opportunity lying ahead of you on this journey. Don’t be the senior who wishes they took care of their GPAs, joined clubs, did research or went out Friday nights during their years as an underclassman. Truly seizing the moment in college means taking advantage of its unique opportunities every second you can.
As your student body government, we’re here to help you do that. The Associated Students of Colorado State University is committed to making your needs as a student our priority, and representing you to the university’s administration and governing board. This year, for example, we look forward to easing the Lory Student Center renovation experience for all students, bringing more events like Grill the Buffs to campus, and improving students success through services like the CSU test bank –– and we want you to be a part of the entire process. As an organization, we work in collaboration with the Department of Athletics, faculty and staff, and the local, state, and national levels of government, so you can bet there’s a place for you here.
Embrace this moment. You’re entering a new stage in your life, and your extended family members at ASCSU are always willing to be your new home. We’re in the Rec Center’s MAC Gym and encourage you to stop by to provide us with feedback, seek involvement opportunities on campus, and be the change you wish to see at Colorado State University.
We wish you all the best in your college career. And remember, GO RAMS!
