Joyce McConnell has been busy becoming part of the Fort Collins campus since she arrived to take over as CSU’s 15th president in July.

She has stuffed backpacks with school supplies for the annual School is Cool drive for Poudre School District, she has attended the grand opening of the Food Bank for Larimer County as well as the Fort Collins BrewFest at Canvas Stadium and many other community events, she has lunched with the University Distinguished Professors and Teaching Scholars, welcomed first-year students at the annual Convocation during Ram Welcome, and she has even served coffee at Sweet Sinsations in the Lory Student Center.

During the first week of classes, she also held meet-and-greet events at the Iris and Michael Smith Alumni Center for faculty, Administrative Professional and State Classified personnel, pictured above. McConnell’s first University-wide address will take place on the Oval Sept. 19, with the President’s Fall Address on the Oval at 11 a.m., followed by the annual University Picnic.
