The Colorado State University (CSU) Rodeo Club provides student members many opportunities to develop in areas such as: leadership, communication, ethics, business management, and athletics, all of which provide experiences beneficial to the overall education of students. During the year, the club holds practice three times a week, hosts several fundraising events, works to promote the sport of rodeo as well as sponsors and hosts the Skyline Stampede Rodeo, the oldest collegiate rodeo in the country. CSU not only has the distinction of holding the first official college rodeo, but also has competed successfully on the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) regional and national level since then. The club members that do not compete in NIRA sanctioned rodeos enjoy the sport, friendships and activities of the club, and are an integral part of our organization.
