Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2008

The DVM program at CSU is truly a phenomenal experience, but it is a very pricey one too. I think the only way to justify going to vet school at all is if it is truly your calling. If you have any doubt about that then take some extra time before committing to the cost and the program. IF becoming a vet is truly your passion, then you won't be sorry you went to CSU. The facilities are great and are constantly being updated, the instructors are top notch, and Fort Collins is an amazing place to live - there is tons to do and the cost of living is reasonable.

Colorado State University has offered a fantastic experience for me so far! The professors are incredible researchers and are experts in their topic areas. When you go to class, you are definitely getting your money's worth. I have also noticed how committed these professors are to student success. Even those who are not formally advising my academic career are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that I will get exactly what I need out of my education, whether I know I need it or not! Overall an outstanding school. The Fort Collins area is beautiful and there is always something going on around town. It is a very safe city, so I never worry too much when going out with friends at night. The only thing that would make Fort Collins better was if it was a little closer to some bigger city areas like Denver or Boulder - it's about an hour drive to get anywhere worth going outside of Fort Collins, so it's not too bad. I have to say that I love this city and my school, and I would highly recommend both to anyone looking for a great place to live or a great education!

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.

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.
