Colorado State University Reviews

I love the location of the school, Fort Collins, and the campus. There are TONS of campus resources for students to take advantage of and the facilities are great. The recreation center is super nice, the student center has lots of cozy places to study, and everyone I’ve met is pretty nice! My improvement would be to add a disc golf course on campus.

As a student working full time the online Masters program at CSU was amazing. I was skeptical of starting an online program prior to starting, however the EDAE Program was absolutely amazing. The professors have challenged me, however were also very understanding of life circumstances. I was also very affordable as most post graduate programs would have cost me an arm and a leg. I would definitely recommend this school and program to others.
CSU is a good school to attend for graduate programs. Enough of a challenge, but also a good level of support. CSU is not an overly diverse campus and there are several instances that I saw in my two years of racial injustice. Their students do use their freedom of speech to acknowledge the injustices that exist on campus which makes the student body interesting and active, but I think they have a ways to go to create a better, more inclusive environment for their students. Overall, I am happy that I chose CSU even if my program wasn’t great in all aspects.
