My freshman year was truly incredible. I am lucky enough to be on a sports team with 25 amazing girls and mentors who helped me through the first year jitters. I was able to learn how hard work and dedication can get you to places you never dreamed of. The downtown area of Pueblo is beautiful at night time. There is a flowing river and plenty of pretty lights to keep you and your friends occupied while you wait for food or are just taking a walk. Dont worry, there are plenty of great picture locations for snapchat or Instagram! Being part of pueblo was all i could imagine and more! GOOOOO PACK

I have met so many people and made a lot of new friends, including my roommate. These people weren't just people I sat next to in class, they come from so many different backgrounds, but we all shared the same ambitions. Each of my instructors try to get to know their students in not only a learning stance, but personally too. On that note I enjoyed each class of mine, and they all consisted of a decent amount of learners who for the most part, were all there to earn a higher education. Two things that I would like changed is the amount of attention that is needed between the Advisors and Financial Aid. They both are major aspects to my learning, but I found that they both don’t know anything about each other so there was a lot of back and forth between offices I had to do. But all together I have had some great experiences from CSU-P that I would never change, and I am happy to say I go to Colorado State University- Pueblo!
It was a smooth transition from high school to college. The professors were very caring and understanding. There is more then enough opportunity to get help when it is needed. It is a very engaged campus and they host plenty of events to give students a chance to socialize, meet new people, and enjoy the campus. The food options could be improved because it is repetitive and not much to choose from on campus. The campus is open but there is a good amount of security. The University allows students to choose how the school year will be and there is so many resources to help when someone is in need. The professors like to engage with students and not just lecture and it helps make classes more interesting. I would recommend going here to everyone based off of my first year experience and how much the school is growing.
