It’s Summertime at CSU!

Summers at CSU are a great time for visitors to experience campus and explore all that we have to offer – including concerts by the lagoon (Lagoon Concert Series), movie nights at Canvas Stadium and special behind the scenes tours. So gather your family and friends, bring your blanket and picnic meal and come enjoy summertime at Colorado State University.

Lagoon Concert Series

For more than 30 years, the Lagoon Summer Concert Series has been a celebrated Northern Colorado summer tradition. Produced by Mantooth Marketing with the partnership of Colorado State University, the Lagoon Series has historically consisted of seven concerts throughout the summer that unite music lovers of all ages and backgrounds.

We are back under the trees of the CSU Lagoon after a 2-year hiatus! With the best bands, a welcoming community and the beautiful setting of Colorado State University – the free Lagoon Summer Concert Series embodies everything worth celebrating in Northern Colorado! This year, we are excited to offer seven nights where community members young and young at heart are invited to enjoy live, free music at The Lagoon on CSU’s main campus. 

Concert Lineup:

  • June 15 – Funky Business
  • June 22 – Nothing But Nineties
  • June 29 – Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts
  • July 6 – Christine Alice
  • July 13 – Clark Street Station
  • July 20 – Rusty 44
  • July 27 – The Wendy Woo Band

Movie Nights at Canvas Stadium

Now entering their third year, Movie Nights at Canvas Stadium presented by Canvas Credit Union, with support from McDonalds, The Group, and Scheels, are set to return on June 17 and July 23.

Colorado State Athletics welcomes the community onto the turf of Sonny Lubick Field to watch family-friendly movies Onward (June 17) and Encanto (July 23) on the stadium videoboard.

Movie Nights are free for the entire family, and the New Belgium Porch will also be open and offering soda, water, and New Belgium beer sales as well as select concession items.

  • Gates open at 6:30 p.m.
  • Movie begins at 7:30 p.m.

 Pre-registration to the event is required, and fans are encouraged to bring blankets and towels for use on the field.  General admission chair back seating on the west side of Canvas Stadium will also be available.

Food and beverages other than water are not permitted on the turf and Colorado State’s Clear Bag Policy will be enforced. And while we love your furry friends, pets will not be allowed.

Tour Tuesdays

We are excited to announce our summer tour series ‘Tour Tuesdays’ each Tuesday from June 14 through August 16.  “Tour Tuesdays” is a series in which we offer tours that highlight various areas of campus to our CSU faculty & staff. There is no cost to attend a tour but registration is required as tour group sizes are limited. Learn more about our tour offerings visit our Tour Tuesday registration site or select Tour Tuesday from the menu on the right.

Summer Session

CSU Summer is home to credit-bearing courses, Accelerated Programs, and the K-12 Summer Programs Portal. Enrolled CSU students and Summer-Only students are welcome to take classes on campus and online through CSU Summer Session. With over 1,700 courses, the 4-, 8-, 12-week and additional-length terms allow students to focus deeply on fewer classes. Students may study at the CSU Mountain Campus, complete an AUCC course, internship, work on a major or minor, or try something new. Degree-seeking students can pursue one of 31 current accelerated programs and graduate in 3-3.5 years by taking summer courses. K-12 summer programs are available for pre-kindergarten through high school students in a variety of academic areas and sports. Explore, experience, and expand through CSU Summer!
