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 night 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 Colorado State University with Canvas Credit Union as the exclusive financial institution and valued sponsors, the Lagoon Series has historically consisted of six or seven concerts throughout the summer that unite music lovers of all ages and backgrounds.

We are back under the trees of the CSU Lagoon with an exceptional concert lineup, your favorite food trucks, and interactive booths! 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 six nights where community members young and young at heart are invited to enjoy live, free music at The Lagoon on CSU’s main campus. Also new this year are themed nights honoring community members and interactive activities for all ages.

  • June 21: Christine Alice & The Canyon Echoes
  • June 28: Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts

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!
