CSU Discovery Week @ Colorado State University
Apr 17 @ 8:00 am – Apr 25 @ 5:00 pm

CSU is home to world famous scientists and scholars across campus. Did you know that Colorado State University has a Foothills Campus that’s home to atmospheric chemists, weather satellite experts, numerous museum collections, and a USDA National Wildlife Research Center? Did you know that CSU’s Powerhouse Energy Campus used to be the Fort Collins coal power plant? Did you know that as an undergraduate, you can conduct research right alongside world-renowned faculty?

For our busy students, it can be hard to appreciate the sheer breadth of cross-disciplinary, cutting-edge scholarship and innovation taking place on our campus, every minute of the day. The inaugural Colorado State University Discovery Week, April 17-25, is your chance to learn all about it.  

We’ll kick off with the Celebrate Undergraduate Research and Creativity (CURC) poster symposium on April 17. There, you can pick up your “Passport to Discovery,” a guided scavenger hunt that’ll take you on a surprising tour of labs, studios, classrooms, and other discovery hotspots. At each stop, you’ll learn something new, meet new people, and receive a stamp. Collect all the stamps, return your passport April 25 at the CURC awards ceremony, and be entered into a drawing for fabulous prizes.

Throughout the week, you can attend a variety of events that further showcase research, scholarship, and creativity around campus. Also that week, listen for “Bring Your Research to Class Day” – in which your professors will spend a few minutes sharing about their academic and scientific pursuits outside the classroom.

Tag us on social media with #CSUDiscovers to share about your journey to discovery. We hope you’ll join us!
