Class of 2018: Show Your Viking Pride

Are you a new Viking? Incoming Class of 2018 students are invited to join in the fun of Cleveland State University's #IMAVIKING social media contest on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win prizes, including Viking Outfitters gift cards and a graduation party visit party from Magnus, CSU's mascot.

Students simply need to post a picture of themselves wearing their "Class of Twenty Eighteen" T-shirts and use the hashtag #IMAVIKING in the post to be eligible to win. Winners will be selected at random.

Students receive their new T-shirts when they attend Orientation.

Orientation at CSU takes place in May, June, July, and August. Students come to campus to create their fall class schedule, receive their Viking ID, meet fellow classmates, and more! Sessions fill up quickly, so if you are a new member of the Class of 2018 and have not signed up for Orientation yet, follow these easy steps:
