Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2020

Colorado State University's Master's of Education in Adult Education reflects the theories taught. Students are treated with a great level of respect and are encouraged to embrace each other's differences as part of the learning experience. My professors have been quite supportive in my scholastic endeavors and are easily accessible. CSU's online program is a great benefit to any person, like myself, who is juggling a family, career, and school.

I currently attend Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins, Colorado earning my Master of Science degree in Toxicology (MST). After graduating from my undergraduate career, I knew that I wanted to go into veterinary medicine, yet, I did not think I was mature enough academically to go into a professional, doctoral program. I stumbled upon the MST degree offering through a graduate program search service. The moment I read about the program, I was intrigued. It had the option of a one to two-year degree program and I thought that this was perfect for me. The instructors and advisors involved in the MST program are always available for meetings outside of class and they genuinely want each of their students to succeed. Many of the students who matriculate into the MST program go on to receive a doctoral degree, whether that be a Ph.D., MD, DDS or DVM. I personally want to move on to veterinary school and one of the head faculty members is a veterinarian. I thought it was extremely important for me a prospective veterinary student to study and be advised by someone in my desired field. In the degree program, students take about 11-12 credit hours per semester, depending on long they want to be in the program. The classes included Forensic Toxicology, Environmental Contaminants, Pharmaceutical and Regulatory Toxicology, Toxicology Pathology and many others. These classes help the students to learn more about the world we live in and, by the end of each course, students have a unique appreciation for the field of toxicology. The MST program has also attracted attention from students around the world. My classmates hail from differing countries like Canada and China to different states: Mississippi, New York, Texas, Minnesota, Illinois and California, just to name a few. The MST program is gaining traction and there are many students in their respective fields whom I have talked to that graduated from the MST program and they are now practicing physicians, veterinarians and dentists. Aside from the MST program, CSU is a community of learners that want each student to succeed in their academic goals. From having tutors on site eight hours a day to having community events on the student union plaza, I have never felt more at home than at CSU. Moving from Mississippi, a big proponent for me was the safety of the school and since being here, I have felt 100% safety at all times. I spend a lot of my time in the library and do not walk home until midnight each night and I have never had to be on high-alert while walking through CSU at night to get to my apartment. However, if I had felt unsafe, CSU provides a police escort service that will walk any person to their car if that person needs extra reassurance. I have even had night exams where the professor stresses that if any student felt uncomfortable walking home after the exam, to call CSU police services. CSU does an excellent job of making students their priority. As a MST student, I do not interact very often with the undergraduate community but I certainly feel at home at CSU and would rank it higher than 100% if I could.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2021

CSU is the only program that I have found that allows me to achievey dream graduate degree while continuing a full time job to pay the bills and most importantly, continuing to be an engaged, available and loving mother. The advisors have been there every step of the way, and the professors are understanding and supportive.

Colorado State is a wonderful university in a beautiful city. I loved being able to balance work and play between completely my schoolwork and escaping to the mountains.
2.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I loved college, as a first generation student, I did feel lost at first though. Afraid to ask for help, disappointed in my advisers who hated being advisers, unsure about which building I should even start in. Clubs and volunteer activities weren't an option for me because I worked 3 part time jobs, so when I wasn't in class, I was at work. This made friend making difficult because I never had free time to hang out- if I did- I was asleep like the dead. I had to push had to make lasting social connections, and the brief handy ones just for the semester. (If I got sick or had a work/family emergency semester friends will loan you notes but don't rely solely on them!). Even if it looks like everyone knows what they're doing, I can promise you, they don't. Don't worry about them, worry about yourself instead. What makes you happy? not rich, not even financially comfortable because that's not a option to a lot of young people. Follow that thing. Even if it's a slight glimmer in the darkness of your interest, there your contentment and joy lies.

The faculty at Colorado State were very helpful and supportive. The graduate school administration was a nightmare.

Degree: Business

The faculty were very professional, knowledgeable, and experienced in their fields. A lot of research was required, but it was done in a way that let you adsorb the information.
