Colorado State University-Fort Collins Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (30)
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.
CSU is a wonderful place to grow into your own. I loved every minute of my time spent at CSU. The Rams or Rammies as they are known around campus have some of the top sporting teams in the state and the stadiums, arenas, and sporting fields are all top notch. CSU offers an excellent on campus experience with plenty of clubs, housing, and of course academics. There is a very broad range of majors that will surely suit even the pickiest of applicants. I was a Natural Resource Major, so I am a nature nut and I loved CSU's campus for that. There are hundreds upon hundreds of trees on the campus, perfect for in between classes to sit back eat some lunch and cram for your next exam. CSU has a large campus, but its not to the extent where its mandatory to take a bus or even bike around it. My main method of transportation on campus was my feet. So check it out, go confidently in the direction of your dreams. CSU has everything that you need and will always be there to support you and push you to your graduation day....Oh ya and what campus has an actually brewery and bar ON CAMPUS? I know CU doesnt! Go Rams and always love your RAMILY! The Ft. Collins community is also a very large draw to CSU. Its a fun, outdoorsy, safe, and entertaining community. You can find anything to do there. From concerts, to white water rafting. From world class foods and dining experiences to horse back rides and mountain bikes trails. Ft. Collins has it all. And hey, who wouldnt want to live in a city that is known as the "Napa Valley" of beers!
