You can easily do this when you log on to shell just by creating [if it does not exist already] the file named ".cshrc" in your home directory. This file contains csh's startup commands. There is another place to look for global csh variables, used by all users [if not modified later by user's variables], this file is usually located in "/etc" and named "csh.cshrc". Just edit it to suit your needs.
