Community Welcome

Community Welcome brochures were distributed August 25th,  2021 from 4:00-8:30pm.

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 go door-to-door delivering brochures to approximately 2,000 homes in neighborhoods close to the main campus. During August 25th,  volunteers once again distributed valuable information in a safe, socially-distant way about City ordinances and expectations the University has for its students.
