Student & Graduate Reviews

3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2017

Colorado State University's Global Campus is ideal for me. I have the opportunity to pursue higher education following my divorce, while not having to figure out how to commute from my small town where my ex-husband and I share custody. The cons are that without a classroom setting, it's difficult to get to know the professor and feel very connected to classmates or my student advisor. I am grateful for the opportunity, however.

I have just started, but I have noticed that there is a lot of interdepartmental cooperation. I think that they could do a little more to enhance the social aspect of the school and its programs.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The Colorado State University School of Social Work offers a great advanced generalist practice program for students of all ages, races and backgrounds. Faculty are knowledgeable, approachable and truly care about providing interdisciplinary evidence-based knowledge and skills to prepare students to enter the professional field.

Degree: Public Policy

My decision to attend grad school at CSU was because of the incredibly efficient and attentive academic advisors that I have had throughout the entire process from enrollment through financial aid and classes!

Colorado State University is a great school, and I am happy to call it my school of choice!
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2014

Great program if you are interested in community nutrition or "bench" science. Not so great if you want to focus on clinical nutrition, but you will still learn at least the basics of clinical to meed DPD requirements. Most of the faculty is willing to help you and/or give you needed advice or support if you ask for it. Depending on who your adviser is you may have some difficulty scheduling an appointment to see them, though. The graduate "computer lab" is essentially a closet with computers in it, but it is usually pretty quiet. Surrounding area is great. Rent is pretty cheap (under $500 if you have a roommate), great restaurants, and lots of outdoorsy things to do in any season! Having a car is recommended, since the bus routes in Fort Collins are pretty lacking if you want to get from your place to anywhere that is not CSU campus.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

As a graduate student in the Ecology program, I feel that one of the many pros include the numerous faculty and lectures available of distinguished ecologist that visit our school. I would say that one of the cons is the limited scholarships and awards available.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2016

It can be confusing at first to try to figure out the terms and the support of the university has forgotten this fact and gives you "copied and pasted" answers so you may have to ask a few times before you get a response to your questions.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Wonderful program, wonderful school, challenging academics!
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great R1 program with a lot of new research and opportunities to get involved and start your own line of research. The workload can be intense and the expectations can be high.
