Community Welcome

Community Welcome brochures will be distributed August 24 – 28, 2020.

The goal of the program is to help foster a sense of community and connection between students and long-term Fort Collins residents. Volunteers made up of CSU students and staff, city employees, and Fort Collins and CSU police will go door-to-door visiting approximately 2,000 homes in neighborhoods close to the main campus. During August 24 – 28, volunteers will once again distribute valuable information about City ordinances and expectations the University has for its students. Additionally, the teams encourage neighbors to get out and meet each other to create positive relationships with new and old neighbors.
