FORT COLLINS, Colo. – In an effort to engage recent Colorado State graduates and alumni that live outside of Colorado, the CSU Alumni Association and Ram Club are combining forces to offer full membership benefits to both organizations at one lower price.
For just $70, alumni can simultaneously join both groups and directly leave a positive impact on student-athletes, as well as receive numerous membership benefits, while saving $80 in the first year. Eligible to sign up are first-time members who are recent CSU graduates (May 2007-May 2011), and graduates that are living out of state.
As a reminder, benefits of both groups include:
• Preferred donor-area seating at CSU athletic events.
• Guaranteed lower-bowl seating for the Cinch Jeans Rocky Mountain Showdown vs. CU at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
• Invitations to exclusive Ram Club functions.
• Exclusive opportunities to purchase tickets to bowl or postseason games.
• Providing resources to CSU’s Athletic Department allowing the program to increase Colorado State University’s national prominence.
• Receiving inside information on Ram Athletics.
• Build “Ram Points,” which are used to determine certain benefits such as seating priority at special events, seat-relocation requests, and eligibility for unique athletics opportunities.
• Most importantly, membership funds CSU student-athlete scholarships.
