TRADITIONS

When you find numbers in the sidewalks at the Kendall Hall entrance, you are at the time capsules prepared by each class year. The tradition was revived in 2000 after being discontinued in 1969. Alumni are invited to campus during Founders Week to witness opening their class time capsule.

The Associated Students of CSU, Chico, offers a Bike Cart with skilled technicians and student-friendly pricing for students who ride bikes to class. The Bike Cart makes fast repairs, fixes flat tires, adjusts gears and brakes, straightens wheels and tunes up bikes while a student is in class.
