Reviews for Colorado State University
I love csu because of what it had to offer me academically. Csu had the second best vet program in the United States. Their classes are very hands on which I believe helps students retain the information they are learning better. If academics wasn't enough for me the people at csu you are amazing. Everyone is super nice and helpful. Are student library even offers free tutoring and editing of papers. This shows how much csu is wanting their students to succeed. There is no other school I would rather go to.
At csu they offer a number of courses. They have any where from criminal justice classes to agriculture classes. The class size varies but it isn't to packed like other colleges like asu or u of a. They have plenty of programs that they offer their students. For example if you are wanting to become a vet they have a vet club on campus. The professors all seem really nice and invested in their students. Which is what I love, they seem like they are willing to here out all your questions and take the time to explain them to you.
The social atmosphere at csu is amazing. It has this feel of happiness as soon as you step on to the campus. You can tell that all the students love it there and just are having a great time. There are clubs for pretty much every major from a criminal justice club to a art club. On the weekends everyone goes hiking and loves to be active and outdoors.
I have not yet entered the university; however, on account of its compatible programs and ecology with my major (environmental engineering). The school promotes research from the start. It holds academic promise, and I am excited to attend.
My estimated work load seems very packed, the stigma of an engineering major. Beyond various programs such as the honors and international interests, I am not sure of everything that is held in store; however, I am interested to find out.
When I visited, the campus was alive with activity, and all of it positive. The surrounding city bustled with interaction, and intellectual discourse; again, a very appealing aspect of the school. I was only there for one day though, and still, as of yet, have not had the full experience.
I really enjoyed the feel of both Colorado State and the surrounding Fort Collins area. I think the campus is very beautiful and has a lot to offer to it's students. The most memorable experience for me on my last trip was eating in the dining center at Corbett. I was surprised at the quality of food compared to some other campuses which I have eaten at; the food at CSU was a lot better. I really enjoy that the school is so bike friendly since I know I will be riding my bike a lot and I mainly really just like the Fort Collins area. The historic district offers a ton of great places to eat and shop. If I had any tips for the prospective students it would be to tour multiple times and get a good feel of the campus, visit the historic district of Fort Collins, and ask lots of questions on your tours.
Since I am not attending the school I cannot shed much light on the academic programs but I can expand on my experience from my tour of the business school. I was ver impressed with the class size and layout of classrooms in the Business school. The classes are generally pretty small and some of the rooms are mobile, meaning that the desks can be moved around and re-arraged in order to help facilitate discussion or group projects. Additionally, if you have a university approved absence and you miss a class, you are able to get a video copy of the lesson that was covered that day since there are multiple video cameras in each room, recording each class session.
Again, since I am not currently attending the school I cannot shed much light on this aspect but I know for a fact that the student/campus life is good because I have a friend who goes to CSU and he loves it. He has told me that it is a great place where it is easy to make friends and there are plenty of parties, activities, sports games, and clubs to be involved and take part in. He says that there is never a boring day at CSU. From a safety perspective, the campus and surrounding Fort Collins area is very safe. As a matter of fact, my guide during my summer trip told me that he cannot remember the last time that he locked his car. The only crime that seems to be a problem is bike theft mainly due to people trying to use unlocked bikes to ride home after a long night at the bar. A simple bike lock is the only safety you will need. If you are scared of walking alone at night there is also a service you can call that will have 2 people in bright colored t-shirts escort you to where you need to go.
