Each CSU campus has a vibrant social calendar of cultural and sporting events, and each campus city offers its own annual festivals and celebrations.

From Orientation to live band performances, there are a range of regular events across campuses, as well as events specific to individual campuses.


Orientation is a fun and informative week full of activities to help you feel at home at CSU. With the vibe of a mini festival, Orientation gives you the opportunity to check out campus facilities, sporting and recreation areas, social clubs, and eating spaces while meeting new people and getting to know your classmates.
