Directions to Alumni Association
YOUR NEW HOME ON CAMPUS IS NOW OPEN
Located on the northeast corner of the stadium, the Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center pays tribute to all that makes us proud to be Colorado State University Rams. It is a place for alumni, students, family, and friends to gather and celebrate.
The Smith Alumni Center is approximately 20,000 square feet and is located at the northeast corner of Canvas Stadium. Mindock Hall features interactive storytelling about Colorado State University and its alumni, utilizing seven touch screens, a 9‐screen video wall, and vibrant graphics.
HOST YOUR NEXT EVENT
In addition to housing the CSU Alumni Association staff offices, the facility has approximately 7,300 square feet of meeting and event space. This includes a fully appointed board room seating 26, an event hall featuring a fireplace, and two seminar rooms. The Association will be hosting numerous events in the center year‐round and it will be available to the public as rentable space. Check back soon for more info!
SHARE YOUR STORY
The Ann Gill Storytelling booth provides an opportunity for alumni and guests to record their CSU memories on video and share those with family and friends via Web, e‐mail, Facebook, and Twitter. See what others are sharing here: www.csualumnistories.videobooth.tv.
CAM THE RAM
CAM the Ram will have a designated outdoor location on the east side of the Smith Alumni Center. This is where Rams fans will find CAM and the Ram Handlers on game day and for special events throughout the year.
A TRADITION RENEWED
The original Old Main Bell hangs in the Jim & Nadine Henry Family Tower at the north entrance of the Smith Alumni Center. After its mysterious return some ninety‐seven years after its disappearance, the Associated Students of Colorado State University (ASCSU) generously paid to have the bell refurbished and will work alongside the Alumni Association to bring back the tradition of the bell for Rams victories and to commemorate special University occasions.
The Smith Alumni Center will be open on home game weekends, starting with a Football Friday happy hour from 4‐7 p.m. On game day, our Aggie Zone tailgate will also be open for four hours prior to kick‐off. All events are free and open to the public. Food and beverage will be available for purchase.
