Colorado State University-Fort Collins Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about Colorado State University-Fort Collins?


I love my school and really believe I chose the best school out there, but there is a goose problem on campus. From late fall through winter and spring, there are geese everywhere. In the giant, beautiful open fields we have on campus, there are hoards of geese laying around. The geese alone would not be much of a problem if they did not deficate absolutely everywhere. There are several places on campus that leave your shoes covered in goose dung. The incredible amounts of goose poop on the ground is the most frustrating thing about Colorado State University.


The most frusterating this about my school would be the parking situation.


The most frustrating thing about my school would actually be some of the students themselves. I say this because, each year a student pays a substantial amount of money in order to obtain your education from a four year university such as this one. However, even though they pay this amount to attend, they lack the maturity and seriousness needed. Meaning, they fail to take their education seriously by not attending class or failing courses, because of their particular social norm. But , they will realize the importance of these few years because of their success in the future.


I would have to say the most frustrating thing about Colorado State Univeristy is the ability, or the lack there of, to easily transfer credits from other schools. Before attending CSU, I attended another school in a different state. Once I got to CSU, I found out that 21 of the 36 credits I earned from my previous institute would only be counted as elective credits. So, I was forced to take many classes that went over similar criteria over again. The headache continues each year when I try to transfer credits from the institue I take Summer courses at.


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


It's out of state, so tuition costs A LOT


It is really cold in the winter and walking to class gets really hard with the wind and sometimes snow. I normally ride my bike which takes no time at all but when its freezing out side it is much too painful to do that. Sometimes i have tests at night too that i have to walk to in the dark during winter. It was so cold the other day that my hair was damp and it began freezing.


Personally I get annoyed that this school is so "green" I believe in recycling to a certain extent but sometimes CSU can go overboard about it.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that I am part of the minority. At my high school i was part of the majority, although it may not seem like it it is hard to adjust to. A lot of people who may not understand you have completely different views than you. As they say it's hard to fill a cup that is already full, thats how some people minds here already are as far as students. It is frustrating trying to get them to understand you. It is also difficult being one out of many in class.


The most frustrating issue I found in school was the weed out first and second year mandatory classes that seem meaningless and boring. If you don't know what may be intersting in your first year, take all of the core curiculum classes and get them over with but do your best. You have to get through the weed out course before you start the classess that you may find interesting. Those classes grab you, make sense and you want to learn more when you are in them and you don't want to bother with core classes.
