Stay the day … or as long as you can

CSU2U Alumni College grew out of what was historically a local cocktail reception in southwest Florida. In recent years, we’ve added educational content with our award-winning faculty, and the feedback has been incredible — so we’re offering even more. You may attend the entire day, or as long you’re able to commit. What’s most important to us is you connecting with one another, and you connecting back with CSU.


The Hotel

The beautiful Naples Bay Resort and Marina is our “campus” for Alumni College. The resort is nestled among the Naples Bay, surrounded by exotic wildlife and lush landscape. The resort combines cosmopolitan class with southern comfort.


What to Wear

No school uniforms are required — we thought we’d clear that up! “Resort casual” during the day is our recommendation.
