"For the most part, the professors are kind and engaged. One professor frequently belittles and insults students, despite numerous complaints lodged about this dynamic. However, Colorado is a beautiful state, and I am still glad to have chosen this program."

"CSU likes to call it's students "scholars" but the majority of the program is busy work and reading old journal articles. It is not a hands-on program. If you are interested in a clinical career then look elsewhere for a program attached to a hospital or with a local clinic. They have more students than fieldwork placements so you may not get to go where want. The fieldwork placement is competitive and by lottery. Even though it is a state school the price is very high for the poor quality. It's popular because it is the only Occupational therapy school in Colorado and people want to live in Colorado. Go elsewhere for your education and then just move West, skip CSU."

"The OT program at CSU is competitive, highly rated, and an overall very desirable program. Living in the city of Fort Collins can be expensive or inexpensive--depends more on what you are looking for. Tuition costs are some of the lowest in the country for an OT program."

"If you are looking for a program that fully supports your professional development, respects you as an equal, provides advanced learning opportunities, and encourages personal growth, then CSU's OT program is right for you! The professors are some of the best in the field and work closely with you to provide the greatest experience possible. Every day is a new learning experience and when the program is over, you will be beyond prepared to excel in your career as a client-centered occupational therapist!"

"So far, what I'm learning is relevant and is taught by well-known professors in the field. Professors are also very approachable. The atmosphere of the program is inviting and doesn't feel competitive. The students help each other and learn from each other. The location and surrounding area is great for recreation, entertainment, and meeting people. I have had some opportunities already in my first semester to network and meet people working in the field. There is very little diversity in the program."

"Pros - research opportunities, supportive staff and other students, great location- on campus and in the surrounding area, technology resource lab. Cons - Many classes are strongly theoretical and there is not a lot of background provided on biology, anatomy, and physiology."

"The program is a very competitive program and focuses a lot on the theory of occupation and the foundations of occupational therapy. Some cons are that I don't feel as prepared going into fieldwork as I would like as far as assessments that are used in the field go. However, fieldwork is a very educational opportunity and is dispersed throughout the program very well."

"Tuition would of course be cheaper if I were a Colorado resident, but it seems likely I will be able to establish residency for the second year. As with any large campus, best to take precautions at night as crime does happen and safety is an issue. CSU is large, but the occupational therapy program is limited to 50 students (highly competitive), and the faculty are not only highly knowledgeable, but very personable as well. This is one of the most highly-ranked OT programs in the nation! It's a wonderful opportunity and an honor to be a part of this program."

"This program is really wonderful. The small class sizes afford great peer collaboration and the faculty is incredibly accessible and helpful. Course work is linked throughout fieldwork which facilitates connections from classroom to practice."
