Year 2 @ CSU: Lighting of the 'A'

The Lighting of the "A" Tradition has been a part of CSU History for decades. As a second-year student, you have the opportunity to be a part of the official "A" Honor Brigade and lead this year's homecoming tradition!

On the Friday of Homecoming Week,  second-year students will light up the 'A'.  Students will walk in the parade together as a group, get official  "We Light the 'A'" Long-Sleeve T-Shirts, and be a part of an unforgettable experience. Students are asked to volunteer from approximately 3:30pm-8:30pmSpace is limited and please note: when you sign up your attendance is expected. An sign-up will be released mid-September.

Additionally, participants must attend a mandatory meeting prior to the event. 

The Lighting of the A tradition has been a part of Colorado State History for decades.
