You might have seen the posters around campus, the desktop backgrounds in the computer labs, or the info on the CSU website – now it’s time to experience Foundation Day for yourself! We’ve got the low-down on all things Foundation Day.

WHO
Foundation Day is for everyone! It’s about the whole CSU family, including students, staff, alumni and people who live in our communities. If you’ve got a connection to CSU, we want you to join the celebrations. You can come to events in person or get involved online.

WHAT
Foundation Day is all about celebrating CSU’s history, values and connections to the community, but it’s also about having fun! Every campus has a morning tea or lunch planned, plus activities like charity fundraisers, a chilli-eating competition and best-dressed competitions depending where you are.

WHEN
Foundation Day is on Wednesday 19 July. It was on this date back in 1989 that CSU was established as a university, although our history dates back to Experiment Farms before 1900!

WHERE
Everywhere! You can join the celebrations on your campus, head to one of our events for online students in Melbourne, Sydney or Wangaratta, or log on from anywhere in the world to share your celebrations on social media.

HOW
