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. 

Scott's Generosity Vital to Shea Robinson’s AR/VR career

“Walter Scott, Jr.’s investment in students is compounding many times over. Thank you for giving away your prosperity in unconditional ways.”

Shea Robinson (B.S., ’07; M.E., ’12) is a mechanical engineering manager for Facebook Reality Labs where he designs and builds Oculus AR/VR prototypes. His multi-year scholarship support through the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering at CSU eased his financial burden and gave him access to opportunities that helped him further his education and set course in his career path.
