Ram Club referral program
Gifts are being sent out this week to donors who assisted with the Ram Club referral program.
The Ram Club membership referral contest ended on a positive note, and the athletics department wants to thank the hundreds of Terrapin Club members who participated in this very important venture. The referral contest generated almost 100 new members who combined to donate over $30,000 in support of Colorado State Athletics. This was fueled in large part by Ram Club members referring their friends, neighbors, family and co-workers to join the Ram Club.
