Cans Around the Oval is Back! This CSU tradition is going into its 32nd year of impacting the Northern Colorado community. Can collection begins October 10 and will end the following Wednesday, October 17. Last years collection raised a total of 324,038 pounds of food. Our very own College of Business was the first place winner among CSU departments, offices, and colleges on campus in addition to the total first place winner. The C.O.B. had a total impact of 93,014 pounds of food. The bar has been set high!

1 in 5 children in our local community are not meeting their nutritional needs on a daily basis. So while you’re at the grocery store this week, remember it doesn’t cost a lot to make a big difference in someone’s life! Let’s make it happen Biz Rams!
