CSU Sport Opportunities

College sports are an integral part of American campus culture.

The Office of International Programs, Athletics Department and Alumni Association are proud to present our Campus Sports/Campus Culture series. Each semester, we team up to introduce students to a unique American sport or to enjoy an international game, while explaining the importance and tradition behind the campus sporting culture.


In the fall semester, we have 3 great opportunities:

This event will take place on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

The game will be held at the Canvas Stadium.
