Student & Graduate Reviews

4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

I simply love this place. The proffs are helpful and always willing to meet with me. The classes are held in intelligent ways, they are building lives, not just pumping students through.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Colorado state is where I got my undergrad in business. I knew from being there on campus the quality of the school and professors. Now that I am enrolled in the distance MBA program I am seeing the same top quality education while having the flexibility of working from home on my own schedule.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The program in Atmospheric Science is top-notch! Wonderful professors, wonderful education, wonderful community. Excellent resources, with CIRA and the Colorado Climate Center located on the Atmospheric Science campus, and NCAR is less than an hour away in Boulder. The department only offers a handful of undergraduate-level courses, so there are no teaching requirements, and graduate students receive more attention from professors. Fort Collins is a great city, very affordable given the generous Atmospheric Science graduate student stipends. The only drawback I can think of is that public transportation doesn't reach the department, so you'll have to provide your own transportation. That said, Fort Collins is very bicycle-friendly, and plenty of faculty, employees, and students regularly bike to work.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

I am participating in the CSU Global Campus and love it. There are definite differences compared to a traditional brick and mortar campus, but the pros far out weight any cons. Students at CSU Global Campus are independent, intelligent, and driven. The professors are very helpful and encourage an open dialog that lead to advance thought on the various class topics. Assignments are often difficult and require a significant amount of research; however, this educational model prepares students for the real world where answers are not always clear.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

The online courses were the deciding factor in my selecting this program due to my heavy workload. Although it enables me to do coursework at essentially any time of the day or night, I miss out on the ability to ask questions directly to classmates or the professor. They do respond, but the responses are (obviously) delayed. The work is rigorous and I do feel that it will prepare me for my certification in Human Resources.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

This program offers distance learning, competitive placement within the field of study, great career services and a reputable program.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

I am choosing to attend Colorado State University because it is one of the top occupational therapy schools in the country. I feel that the expertise of the professors allows me to gain the best base of knowledge before entering the job market. I really don't have many complaints about the graduate program. The professors are incredibly insightful, the fieldwork opportunities are exceptional, the campus is beautiful, and the city of Fort Collins is an absolutely wonderful place to live. The only thing I can possibly mention as a negative is that the graduate program is so good, that it is extremely challenging to get in. As a 4.0 student out of undergrad, involved in college athletics and numerous other extracurriculars, I was wait-listed to CSU and did not get into the program until last minute. I am glad I did get in though. The extra wait was well worth being a part of such an elite program.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2009

The economics program at CSU prepares students for academia or a government job, not necessarily a professional career, and their faculty, for the most part, lack real world experience.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Working over 60 per week and then having to work on my courses does not really give me much time for myself. One thing I love about this program is that whenever I am in need of help I know I can get a hold of someone to help me quick, professor, IT, financial aid, etc.. The friendly and professional instructors come from all areas of business which in turn gives us as students a great way to figure out which part of business we want to get involved with. One of the downsides is that this program is ranked 43 for the online MBA program. Since this program was founded in 1994, they still have some fine tuning to do but I know they will start climbing the ranks very soon.
