Congratulations, Class of 2022!

In keeping with the Colorado seasons, spring at CSU is a time of reflection, celebration, and new growth. Across the university, we take moments to experience the joy of being back together on our beautiful, blooming campus, perhaps imagining the possibilities and promises of our next adventures: new jobs or internships, perhaps travel, or time with family and friends.

For our graduates, it is the end of one season, but the next is just waiting to get started. Students, you have done truly amazing things in your time here, and you will do a great many more.

Whatever awaits you as this year comes to a close, we hope it is filled with joy, health, and connection.
