Where can I find details about the move-in for the CNSLC?

CNSLC members get to move in one day early from 8 am- 4pm on Wednesday, August 15.  Starting around 4, the activities for CNSLC students will begin. We encourage parents, families and guests to explore the surrounding Fort Collins area this afternoon and evening.

While we HIGHLY recommend students getting involved in the many opportunities provided as being part of the CNSLC, we do not mandate additional courses or involvement unless you are in the CNSLC Science Outreach Scholars community or Sustainability community. Students in these groups take a one-credit seminar in the Fall semester in Pinon Hall.

Faculty teach courses in the two classrooms in Piñon Hall and are also active in many of the programs held in the learning community throughout the year.

How big is the community?

The community has 400 students total. 350 are first-year students and about 50 are returning students.

What are the majors of students in the community?
