I would like to wish you and your family a Happy New Year as we start the spring semester of 2015.
Students and faculty are back on campus after a long Holiday Break and are eager to start the educational process once again. We are very proud of the work everyone here on campus does to serve our students to prepare them to be productive citizens and proud CSU-Pueblo alums.
We have started the process of accepting foundation scholarship applications for the 2015-16 academic year and will do so until March 1. Over 500 students have already started the application process and we are expecting to receive around 2,000 applications.
The Foundation would also like to congratulate the CSU-Pueblo Football team for winning the 2014 NCAA Division II National Championship. I was very impressed with the number of people who made the trip to Kansas City to support the Pack and the CSU-Pueblo staff did a great job of organizing events at the game and around the Kansas City to make the event memorable. Some individuals have said that the exposure the University received during the game, which was broadcast live nationally on ESPN2 was worth over $10 million.
The CSU-Pueblo Foundation awarded $1.7 million in scholarships to over 600 students this current academic year.
The “On The Move” campaign is moving forward as we reach the half-way mark of our three-year campaign. Over $11.5 million has been raised for scholarships and academic programs, the Occhiato University Center remodel, and the expansion of the CSU-Pueblo Department of Athletics.
If you would like more information about our campaign please visit www.csuponthemove.com or give us a call at (719) 549-2380.
Have a great 2015 and Go Pack!
Todd Kelly, CEO/President
