Celebrating a Tradition of Giving

Founded in 1870, Colorado State University is celebrating its 150th anniversary throughout the 2019-20 academic year. From the moment the first graduating class received their diplomas, alumni have committed themselves to making an impact in their communities, the world, and their alma mater through their talents, hard work, and ongoing generosity.

These stories highlight how that generosity has increased access and opportunity for students, helped build and enhance world-class educational facilities, funded ground-breaking research, and supported programs that extend the University's resources far beyond campus. Thanks to you, Rams everywhere can look back on a record of excellence rooted in our land-grant mission while looking forward to another 150 years of impact. 

Support Helps a Hero Find a Home at CSU

Stephen Lunt’s (B.S., ’18) journey to Colorado State University wasn’t easy. After recovering from a near-fatal injury he received during combat in Afghanistan, Lunt decided to attend CSU after being introduced to the university through the GI Bill. Through this support, and generous support from Dave and Gail Liniger and the Adult Learner and Veteran Services, Lunt is applying his military and educational experience toward a future he’s exceptionally grateful for.
