The Oval

The Oval is the historic center of campus. The century-old buildings house some useful academic offices, and students can also utilize the beautiful green space for studying, napping, picnicking, or dog-walking. Additionally, the Oval houses many traditions at CSU, most notably the Homecoming Parade and our student-led food drive, Cans Around the Oval. Many students and alumni remember the Oval for years after graduation, making it one of our most beloved spaces on campus.
