Friday Afternoon Club (FAC)

Friday Afternoon Club (FAC) is back for the Winter Break!

After a long break due to the pandemic, Friday Afternoon Clubs (FACs) are back for the winter break! FACs have been a CSU tradition for almost 50 years. Join us Fridays and connect with our international community, learn about special activities or volunteer opportunities, and engage in new friendships from around the world in this relaxed, social setting. FACs are free and open to the CSU community.
