Football 101

College Football, Campus Life & American Culture

When: We hope to have this program, in some form, in September or October 2020

Join the Colorado State University Alumni Association, Athletics Department, and Office of International Programs to experience a CSU football game! Learn about the sport of American football, CSU Football Traditions, experience Ag Day, and join fellow Ram fans to cheer Ram football onto victory!

In the past, this event has included the below activities. This year, it will be somewhat different, and we will update this page when we have more information. Football 101 will celebrate its 12th year of bringing international students into the heart of campus life and American culture through an inside look at American football.

Saturday Afternoon Activities

  • Join other international students and learn the basic rules of the game from the National Football League
  • Practice singing the CSU fight song
  • Pass around the football equipment used by Ram athletes.
  • Meet past CSU Football players (even one who played in the National Football League (NFL))!

Saturday Evening

  • Head in to the stadium for free food
  • Cheer on the Rams to victory!

International Programs, Athletics, and the Alumni Association all work together to make this a special weekend for international students that you won’t forget.
