Celebrate CSU's 150 Years
Preserve CSU’s History for the Future
In 2020, CSU will celebrate its sesquicentennial. Founded in 1870 as the Colorado Agricultural College, Colorado State University is now among the nation's leading research universities. Our world-class research in infectious disease, atmospheric science, clean energy technologies, environmental science, and biomedical technology attracted more than $300 million in research funding annually. Our professional programs in veterinary medicine, occupational therapy, journalism, agriculture and construction management are ranked among the nation’s best. Colorado State is the “university of choice” for Colorado residents!
With a rich 150 year history comes thousands of historical photos and hours of video documenting the progress. These precious records must be preserved for the future and are being digitized to create a documentary film.
Support the preservation of CSU history! Give a gift today.
