Key Connect

2020 Key Connect will occur on Wednesday, August 19th and Thursday, August 20th.  Addition schedules and details will become available in August, 2020.

Key Connect is a time for students to meet everyone in their Community, Key Course Cluster, their Key Mentor and Resident Assistant, and those who will be living on their floor.  Students will also have the opportunity to connect with faculty and staff involved with the program, learn about campus resources pertinent to academic success during college, find their classrooms, and set goals for the semester.

Former Key students tell us that the benefits of Key Connect Orientation included:

  • meeting and getting to know students and staff
  • feeling knowledgeable and comfortable in the residence hall and on campus
  • becoming more familiar with the requirements and expectations of being a Key student
  • learning about resources that the campus offers.

Key Connect is separate from CSU’s Ram Welcome Orientation, which begins on the afternoon of Thursday, August 22nd.  All new first-year students are expected to attend Ram Welcome. Build upon your Ram Orientation experience and begin your successful adjustment to Colorado State University.
