Orientation and Transition Programs (OTP) at Colorado State University provides programming and services designed to assist first-year, second-year, and transfer students with a successful transition at Colorado State University.We offer a continuum of services beginning with orientation to Ram Welcome (prior to classes beginning) to transition programming throughout the first two years of students’ experiences at CSU. OTP believes in assisting students in knowing and feeling what it means to be a CSU Ram. Additionally, OTP places high value on student leadership and development and employs over 280 student leaders to implement these university-wide programs.
