Colorado State University-Fort Collins Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
CSU was an absolutely amazing experience. The professors were kind, caring and helpful. Since the program was about education, the entire experience was about how to do it well. From the course outlines to the syllabi, everything worked together to give me an incredible education. I made life-long friends and still stay in touch with professors. The campus is beautiful (had to go there for a week) and the cost was lower than most other schools. I'm looking to send my daughter there when she's ready for her master's and Ph.D. programs in a four years.
CSU is the perfect blend of academics and Family. The advisory board are your professors and they are all seasoned! This is a challenging and excellent University!
Great faculty. Up to date campus. Awesome library. Can't beat Colorado or Ft. Collins.
I loved my time at Colorado State! I would repeat my college years at CSU without hesitation. The people are wonderful, the campus is beautiful, and the culture instilled in the students is something to be proud of!
My college experience at CSU was fantastic. You really have to go into the whole experience willing to do anything. I found that once I accepted this, I started having a much better time, was being more social, and enjoyed more of the usual college experiences. Ft Collins is a great city with lots to do for all kinds of people. My degree has set me up to do some really cool things in grad school and beyond. I couldn't have gotten to where I am today without the people and experiences I had at CSU.
The Master's program that CSU offers for education is great. You are truly more prepared then people with out this education. We walk into our first classroom with experience that already places us beyond the first year teacher. The professors are caring and will guide you every step of the way.
So really, the material you learn in class will not help you in real life because a few months after you graduate, you'll pretty much forget 80% of what you learn. However, college is a great opportunity to get an internship, which is worthwhile because most employers aren't looking at your grades but rather your experience in the field that you're applying for. If you have a degree and have experience, you'll most likely get hired.
The city of Fort Collins, the beautiful campus and being at the foothills near the Horsetooth reservoir are the main reasons I loved my school. There is a very diverse student body and if you enjoy good beer, there are fantastic breweries all over the city that offer fun brewery tours and other events. Old Town is a great place to have good food, find good music and hang out at fun bars.
College was the best years of my life. Sure it was stressful a lot of times, trying to juggle personal life and all the homework, reading, essays, and tests but it was the best time of my life. I learned so much about myself and I learned so much more than what I thought I could learn.
Professors and program are good. The institution itself seems to be growing a lot-- and is clearly experiencing 'growing pains' e.g. constant construction, poor facilities in some instances. The town is amazing.
