A great school that allows me to explore what I want to do with my life. On-campus housing always has fun events for residents! Met my best friends my third day here! Put yourself out there and you'll enjoy your time here! Go to RamWelcome events to make the most of you time here!
Colorado State University hosted such an amazing experience for my undergraduate studies. I enjoyed the accessibility to nature, hiking on the weekends, climbing during the week, and swimming in the reservoir in the summer. The campus is the most sustainable one in the USA, which is such a cool thing to tell others in my field.
Colorado State University-Fort Collins is a great college to attend. It's located in a quaint town and there are several restaurants nearby as well as plenty of things around town to explore and be involved in. I've been really happy with my experience here on campus.
Colorado state is a public research university with a rather high graduation rate. I think it looks like an amazing college where students are very productive and learn everything they need to know and more about their chosen major. Its also a great place for students to develop friendships and some school spirit.

Before this school I was extremely pessimistic about society. I viewed humanity as a negative biological entity, a creature on this planet that has quite literally taken over. However, after my classes and incredible on campus internship, I have learned a new meaning to conservation. Community based conservation is the only future for our planet. Bringing together research, community values, policy, economics and more is prudent for the future of conservation. Colorado State has opened my mind to a new light that has caused an overwhelming amount of ambition and optimism to swell within me. I've learned the true meaning to sustainability, and have come to realize that humanity is not a negative entity; we are simply a system that has gone out of balance. In the end it comes down to the ability to sustain both our natural and human world in one system, and in the end it comes down to places like Colorado State who inspire us all to look for new faces of change.
Full, but worthwhile and engaging.
I love CSU!
The academics at Colorado State University allow students to grow in their preferred field of study. While it can be frustrating during one's first couple years of having to take classes that don't pertain to his/her major, it does get more interesting once General Education courses and Prerequisites are out of the way. Students begin to learn more about what they actually came to college for-- to become professionals in a selected field of study. Along with classes becoming more enjoyable, the class sizes decrease in size, which, I believe, allows for more personal growth as a student; professors get to know students by name and build relationships that ultimately help students to reach his/her maximum potential. It isn't uncommon to see students at CSU putting numerous hours into studying and homework, whether that be in different Halls or in the Morgan Library.
The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are the relationships with greek life students and the ones who dont participate in it.
I would say Greek Life is the most popular student activity around campus but there are many different groups for specific interests in each college. For example the College of Ag has block and bridle club or CSU cattlewomens association, and lots more.
I think many students enjoy their college experience and are experiencing new things in their life, but I dont think CSU parties any more or less than any other college campus.
Colorado State University is in a great location! You are right next to the mountains if you enjoy outdoor recreation, and if not Denver is only an hours drive away.
Sometimes the size of the campus is intimidating.
My school has a beautiful campus with amazing professors but a very poor chimestry department.
The engineering and music programs.
If they had they had the majors and the sport clubs/ varsity sports that would interest me in trying out for the teams and pursuing a degree in those majors
Colorado State University is a very diverse school that offers opportunities for many types of people. A person that attends this school should probably enjoy the outdoors, seeing as the students and the community of Fort Collins are very active and outdoors oriented as a whole. The person should also be comfortable in a large school since CSU has roughly 27,000 students. The person should also enjoy getting involved because CSU has an enormous amount of Student Organizations that offer involvment opportunities for every interest.
Anyone interested in learning, growing, and advancing their opportunities for the future should attend. No one should be left out, if they are willing to work hard.
The eco-friendly enthusiastic nature of the campus. It's helpful and not pushy and offers ways for you to become 'green' instead of just telling you to become 'green'.
It is best known for its incredible environmental studies and research. My department, Fish Wildlife and Conservation Biology, is nationally ranked. As is our Pre-Vet, Pre-med, Engineering, Agricultural, and Zoology departments. Overall it is a very academically challenging school.
The most frustrating thing is walking to class when it was in the worst of winter getting a foot of snow and having no teachers cancel class because it was just typical colorado weather
CSU is stereotyped as a state school where all kids do is party. There certainly is partying that goes on, but there are very few people giving all college students a bad rep. I have met tons of people who have no interest in partying at all, and have found a very comfortable atmosphere at CSU away from the party scene. Fraternity life can get a little rowdy like the stereotypes portray, but not to the extent you see in movies and in the media. Overall, the CSU fraternities are respectable.
The school is changing up the people working with the sports team. They just let go the football coach. But sports is a big thing here and students get free tickets to the home sporting events and they are a lot of fun to go to.
Most of my classes range from 100-250 students. The largest class I'm in has over 300 students but it's also one of the most popular classes taught here. My smallest class has under twenty students. The professors are great about giving students an opportunity to communicate with them directly, either by email or a visit during their office hours. My classes themselves are challenging but in a good way! I'm learning a lot this semester, particularly in my Spanish Conversation class and my Psychology of Human Sexuality class.
