Construction Management Homecoming float wins first place keeping streak alive

CM Homecoming Float

CSU Homecoming is a sure sign that fall in Northern Colorado has arrived. And with fall’s arrival, you can be sure that the students on the Construction Management Board of Directors (CM BoD) are hard at work on another Homecoming float. With each year, the pressure to continue CM’s winning tradition ratchets up. But the CM BoD continues to answer the challenge, winning top honors.

Inspired by the theme, “Fort Collins is Home,” the float featured a prominent Cam the Ram out in front of a Horsetooth-inspired climbing wall, an Aggie orange chairlift, a bicycle-riding local outside a solar powered house, and tent. The CM BoD’s hard work was recognized yet again, earning a first place trophy for the 13th year in a row.

The students in Jeff Wilkes and Anna Fontana’s Key Community Seminar- Key Academic: Breaking Ground: Building Future Leaders also entered a float. Drawing upon their access to the IS Lab, they built a snowy mountain peak in the back of the department’s pick-up truck and a shingled and painted house pulled behind on a small trailer. KEY student Ira Weiss produced a time-lapse video of the build titled A Homecoming Story that can be seen below.
