Colorado State University - Pueblo to host registration event Thunder Thursday Aug. 2

PUEBLO – Colorado State University-Pueblo invites prospective, transfer, and continuing students to Thunder Thursday, a big, bold registration event from 3-8 p.m. on Thursday, August 2 in the Student Recreation Center.

Individuals who enroll that day for Fall 2012 courses will be entered into drawings for an IPad, parking passes, five ThunderBuck packages, and free ID cards. The $25 application fee for admission as well as late fees will be waived during this event. Students interested in applying for admission must bring two forms of identification as well as transcripts from all schools they have attended and ACT/SAT scores.

“This is a great opportunity for all students - new and continuing - to visit the campus, see an advisor, register for classes, eat some food, and experience the campus before the fall semester rush,” said Joe Marshall, assistant vice president for enrollment management.

Student operated radio station Rev 89 will broadcast live from the event, which also will feature a free bounce house, popcorn, and snow cones.

Additional drawings for football tickets, gas cards, and CSU-Pueblo clothing items will be held for currently enrolled students who want to get a head start on the Fall Semester by purchasing student IDs, parking passes, or completing other business like changing classes or receiving an evaluation of transfer credit. The bookstore will offer a five percent discount on textbooks, which can be ordered that day electronically.

Students also may learn about the numerous on-campus housing opportunities that exist, take care of holds they may have accumulated, consult an advisor or financial aid representative, or eat free a buffet that includes Thunderdogs, chips, cookies, and drinks! Call 549-2462 for more information.
