Fall at CSU

Fall energy ignites all who visit campus September through December. As we welcome students and alumni back to campus, it opens a great opportunity for visitors to experience campus in a whole new way! From sporting events to academic symposiums, live music to festivals, there’s something for everyone. 

Sporting Events

CSURams.com features our student athletic events. Join us at CSU’s new soccer complex to cheer on our soccer team or visit Moby Arena for Volleyball and Basketball and don’t forget to join us at the Ram Walk Tailgate in Ram Town prior to every home football game. It’s open to everyone and features live music, beverage garden, food and more! CSU’s new soccer and softball complex is now open and the perfect way to spend a fall day on campus.

Live Music & Entertainment

CSU re-launches into the thriving northern Colorado music scene with multiple on-campus venues for live music. CSU isn’t new to the music scene. In fact, CSU has featured big names like The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ludacris, Macklemore, Nico & Vinz, Lee Brice and more! Each summer CSU hosts the Lagoon Concert Series, a 6-week concert series with local & Colorado talent with recording contracts as headliners. Don’t forget, the University Center for the Arts features over 200 performances each year! From big name concerts to intimate acoustic performances, Colorado State University has something for everyone year-round.

Join us October 7, 2023 for our first concert back on campus featuring an Evening with Goose. This concert is bigger than Red Rocks which the band performs at two nights prior. Tickets are limited and you don’t want to miss it. Student tickets are free and General Admission is $50! The concert venue will feature two beverage gardens, a VIP area, food trucks and an evening of fantastic entertainment.
