  3. Eric Berlinberg – ASCSU President Student Input

  4. Proposed On-Campus Stadium Student Report to the Committee Associated Students of Colorado State University May 30, 2012

  5. Outreach Efforts To-Date • Student body e-mail • Online surveys • Plaza outreach • Student forums w/CPD • Comment forms in ASCSU Office • Joint efforts with CPD • Senate, College Councils, etc.

  6. Student Body E-mail • Sent to 28,804 • 750 e-mail responses • Themes: • Already have a stadium • What to do with Hughes • Why not renovate Hughes • Construction on campus • Current performance of Football team • Money & Efforts could be spent elsewhere • Noise concerns on campus

  7. Online Survey • Sent to 28,804 • 3,260 responses – 11.31% • Themes (1,856 comments): • Academic vs Athletics • Alcohol sales (on both sides) • Construction apathy • Locations • Proposed location concerns • Existing facilities impacted • Parking • Safety (violence, alcohol, more people, drunk driving) • Traffic & Congestion • Tailgating

  8. Written Comment Forms • Themes: • Academic vs Athletics • Concerned about student opinions mattering • Disruption to surrounding community + res halls • More info on location • Parking • Sustainability • Tailgating (from both sides) • Traditions • Traffic in main arteries of Fort Collins + on campus • Want a winning team first • “How does a good stadium mean a good team?” • What happens with Hughes • Suggestion to upgrade Hughes

  9. Plaza Outreach • May 1, 2 • Goal: Engage students to give informed feedback, while providing information we currently have • Staffed by ASCSU Student Services & Governmental Affairs Departments, CSU Facilities, Populous and ICON staff

  10. Plaza Outreach • Same themes we have heard from students • Athletics vs. academics • What to do with Hughes Stadium • Parking, Tailgating, Traffic • Community Impact • As more factual information has come out, we experienced a reduction in the loud vocal opposition • Student concerns about specifics (greenhouses, parking, tailgating, traffic, etc), not the concept overall • Seeing visuals of the concept/location helps students conceptualize • Students enjoyed asking questions and having factual answers, not just basing off of rumors • Attitude of ‘the student body’ appears to have moved substantially towards the center

  11. Plaza Outreach • Summary: • Personalized engagement helped students feel involved in the process • More info being shared shifted student perceptions • Students were frustrated about process • Still a general lack of understanding about the complexity of the project

  12. Moving Forward • Student Engagement Committee • ASCSU involvement • Additional student-centered forums & ‘town halls’

  21. “We should note that CSU has bent over backward to be transparent about its efforts and intentions. “The school has a website specifically dedicated to the potential stadium that is chock full of information.
