All new students and their families attend Ram Welcome : Experience CSU. Building on our conversations during orientation, Parent & Family programming during Ram Welcome focuses on the family impact of your student’s transition to college, information on CSU Health Network programs and services, CSU’s safety net and conduct services, and the celebration of your involvement in your student’s college career. Please plan to move your students to campus on Thursday, August 16, 2012. Students are expected to participate in all four days of Ram Welcome, but Parent and Family programming ends promptly at noon on Friday, August 17, 2012.
