I went to Colorado State University for a semester and am planning to return again this fall. I enjoyed the campus very much and the classes were good. It's not for someone that doesn't want to go to school with a lot of people. Overall I had a good time there and am excited to return.

I am an incoming freshman and so far everything has gone very smoothly. Any questions I have are easily answered by the admissions office. Everyone is super helpful and takes the time to listen to your questions and problems. I am really excited to start school at Colorado State University because I want to meet a lot of new people. My sister goes to CSU and has had a great experience so I am excited to see how I fit in to the school.

Colorado State University is a college where you find your place in it. The best part about CSU is the amount of support and care that the staff and peers have for you. I find that being a freshman can be tough, but CSU made it fun and a challenge that encouraged you to step out of your comfort zone. CSU is welcoming, diverse, and educational college. CSU offered a lot of fun and safe activities that you can indulge on. These allow you to expand your horizons and learn something new.

Nice open and welcoming space. It has an influx of people from all over the world so there is some culture and belief clashes. School is trying its best to deal with it.

I loved attending this university. Fort Collins is an extremely fun and friendly town with lots of activities for college students to participate in. I attended the College of Business and there was ample opportunity to create connections with career events, along with working with brilliant professors. I would recommend this college especially to those looking to study in the business field.
