Colorado State University-Fort Collins Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (21)
I was in the CSU-Online Plus program. This is a great program for individuals who can't make it on-campus courses but still want a degree where you gain an in-depth knowledge of your chosen degree. I felt that I received a broad choice of topics in psychology to take courses in and some of the courses were fantastic. I loved my Forensic and Abnormal Psychology courses. I learned a lot in the Cognitive Psychology, Sensation and Perception, even in Statistics. In most course I felt that I had great support from my professors and their graduate students, who were willing to answer questions, although sometimes there could be a delay in getting an answer. The only criticisms I have with the program are one: if you are a Colorado resident they won't allow you to use your COF stipend and two: you have to fight to gain the attention of advisers, some professors and other campus faculty. There can be a huge disconnect in communication between online students and the program. Make sure to be vocal if you are part of this program.
My experience at Colorado State University-Fort Collins was nothing short of spectacular. From the first moment I stepped on campus for my 'Preview' as a Freshman, I felt like I was part of a community full of motivated individuals. Colorado State University is not only great on campus, but it is also good for students who have major life changes that require online learning to be an option. I was given the opportunity to be an online student after attending school on-campus for 2 years because of a personal situation and I was impressed by how well faculty and staff facilitated my transition. I cannot say enough about how valuable my time at CSU was because I am still feeling the benefits of receiving my degree to this day. I know that CSU help propel me to success in my professional life, and did well to make the decision to pursue my graduate degree very easy.
The Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University is exceptional. I received my bachelors degree in Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology in 2012 and couldn't have been happier about the program, my education and the staff. My class sizes were small which made it easy to make friends and get support for homework and tests, My professors were all willing to make time to answer questions outside of class and provide guidance for my future. There were plenty of opportunities to join career development clubs for networking and additional experience. The College in general is extremely hands on and I felt very prepared and well rounded upon entering the workforce after graduation. Overall. I was happy with Colorado State University. Though it is a big school I felt that there was a lot of support as a student. Fort Collins is great and I am so excited to be returning as a graduate student this fall!
Colorado State was an amazing experience that I would choose again if I had the choice to do it again. CSU has fantastic instructors many of which are from the real world rather than academic. Having learned from these professors provided me with the experience I needed to be successful.
CSU was a fantastic school. I was looking for a smaller college after I went to UGA for 1.5 years and could not handle the large classes and the unhelpful professors. CSU was the perfect choice for me. CSU advised me on classes to take and when to take them, the classes were relatively small, and the professors and TA's were extremely helpful. I only wish that CSU had offered more opportunities on how to proceed after graduation. I felt a little thrown into the world not knowing what to do next.
Colorado State University provided me with all of the educational opportunities I needed in order to both pursue a career in the human services field, as well as apply to graduate school programs for school counseling and mental health awareness. During my time here, I took on a full time load of classes while raising my son, and my professors were always accommodating and encouraged me to do the best I could do, and to never take on more than I could handle. Some of my professors and mentors now feel like family to me, as they always pushed me but had my back through the hard moments. CSU is an extremely diverse campus, and the student body goes to great lengths to include anyone to the RAM family. I am proud to be a CSU Ram alumni, and hope to begin my Graduate school experience there this upcoming fall so I stay with my family.
As an out of state student, CSU had all that I needed that I didn't know I needed. There is a great sense of community at CSU and the professors really go out of their way to make sure you are understanding the material. Professors will even meet with you outside of class time to help explain what they went over in class or to answer any questions you may have. CSU provides a lot of fun, safe events for undergraduate students to attend which makes it easy to meet other students and make lasting friendships. CSU has many clubs you are guaranteed to find one that fits your needs. CSU has such a fun atmosphere which includes athletic rivalries, school pride, and celebrating Colorado. I loved every minute at CSU and I know that you, future student and future Ram, will too!
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!
The Colorado State University teacher education program offers students a comprehensive look at education both in teaching methodologies and hands-on experience. Students should prepare themselves to work with caring, knowledgeable, and passionate faculty who are vested in your career ambitions. Students will be enrolled in multiple classes held at local public schools. These classes are important as they network you with experienced teachers and potential hiring administrators, but also expose you to real world teaching and real students. The Colorado State Teacher Preparation Program is a very high preforrming and engaging program.. The only downside is the program contains a few classes that greatly overlap curriculum, which sometimes feels like your wasting your time. Overall, students should expect to be a part of a rigorous, applicable, and beneficial program that can lead you to a career in education. As a final note, this program helped develop myself as an educator where I found employment shortly after graduating with a large local school district.
