Colorado State University Reviews
Review Colorado State University
The process of going to college is a big one, but CSU made it as easy as they could. At the time it seemed annoying to get email after email about things like move in tips, or just info about CSU programs and organizations. Although looking back it was a huge help and the really did try to help make this huge transition as seamless as possible. Now that I've finished a semester at CSU, I cant think of being anywhere else. the location of the campus is great, many freshmen don't have cars with them, but there is plenty of things in reasonable walking/biking distance. There's programs and sports for everyone, and it's extremely easy to get involved with whatever you want. As a whole the campus and town have a really nice home-like environment, wether you're on campus or down town Fort Collins. I love the city and school, GO RAMS!
I love Colorado State University! I love how supportive the faculty is with the students; most of them are really empathic and understanding. I love the classes that I am taking, they are engaging in all subjects that I am taking. There are a few programs like the Honors Program that can help students adjust to college better. Everyone on campus is really nice and friendly. They have a concert in the fall every year that is free for students with bands like The Head and The Heart. There are various clubs that you can do like the Dead Poet Society if you are an inner poet.
One thing I absolutely love about Colorado State is how easy it is to get involved! If you are willing to put yourself out there and get to know people, you'll be amazed at the opportunities that come your way. For example, I was invited by a friend to attend my residence hall's Hall Council meeting, and I am now a senator and Ops. Liaison in student government, about to run for vice president! My point is, if you love CSU, there are so many ways to show that love and that spirit. If there is something you'd like to change, being the one who changes it is just as easy, if you are willing to put in the work.
