Key Connect

Save the date for Key Connect – Thursday, August 19th

Key Connect is a time for students to meet everyone in their Community, Key Course Cluster, and their Key Mentor.  Students will also have the opportunity to connect with staff and faculty involved with the program, learn about campus resources pertinent to academic success during college, 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
  • becoming more familiar with the requirements and expectations of being a Key student
  • learning about resources that the campus offers.

As you are reserving your Move In date and time, select one of the timeslots on either Monday, August 16th or Tuesday, August 17th so you can fully engage in all Key Connect activities on Thursday, August 19th

Key Connect is separate from CSU’s Ram Welcome.  All new first-year students are expected to participate in Ram Welcome. Build upon your Ram Orientation experience and begin your successful adjustment to Colorado State University.

Additional information about Key Connect 2021 will be shared with students over the summer.

2020 Key Connect will be a virtual experience required for all Key students occurring the week of August 24th.
