Hannah - 02/08/2024

I love Colorado State University, Pueblo because it is easy and convenient for me to go to school while staying at home. my favorite area to go to study is a top floor of the library. I can look down at the campus below and see what everyone is up to. The professors are caring, especially in the Nursing Program and I can tell that they want everyone of us to succeed. I feel like there can be some work done for the extracurricular activities. That being said, I love going to the football and basketball games. Overall, I think CSUP is a great school and I would recommend it for anyone.

Karinzza - 10/31/2023

I love this college because everybody here treats me like family, but not only that we all communicate to each other, and not only that we are one big happy family. No matter if you are friends with each other or not, everybody gets along perfectly normal and that is basically what matters. All of the teachers are always there to help you raise up your grades if you are struggling and they always give you more time if you ask for it. You can even become friends with the teachers if they notice you work hard.
