For more than 140 years, Colorado State University's athletics department has enjoyed a number of enduring and endearing traditions. They range from the institutionalized fall rites to lesser known and quirky customs. But mainstay or quirky, the customs and beliefs handed down from one generation to the next - from Aggie to Ram - are part of what makes us unique. These customs reflect a campus carved out of the wilderness by pioneering men and women whose strength of character and commitment to helping each other succeed can still be recognized on campus today.
Once you don CSU colors, you become a Ram for life. You are For-Ever-Green. The name For-Ever-Green was borrowed from a tradition started in the 1990s by Associated Students of Colorado State University. Every fall, ASCSU prints thousands of special For-Ever-Green T-shirts and distributes them to al incoming freshmen to welcome them to the CSU community. Like those shirts, this Web site is dedicated to the idea that being a Ram means something more than just what university you attend.
Many of the photos and features of this history and traditions Web site were provided courtesy of CSU's office of communications and creative services, who in 2007 produced a book called For-Ever-Green, a first-ever attempt to catalog what it means to be a Ram or Aggie.
Colorado State has a rich history of athletic success dating back more than 100 years. CSU's intercollegiate athletics program sponsors 16 sports programs, including 10 for women (cross country, indoor track, outdoor track, volleyball, basketball, golf, tennis, swimming, softball, and soccer) and six for men (football, cross country, indoor track, outdoor track, basketball, and golf).
Colorado State competes in the Mountain West along with 11 other institutions. CSU was one of eight charter members when the league was formed in 1999.

The Rams volleyball team has participated in the NCAA tournament 19 consecutive seasons, the longest such postseason streak in school history by any sport program.
