A purposeful education

Regardless of which field you choose to pursue, you’ll have every opportunity to take your studies to the highest level. But CSU is more than just a place where you can explore your interests wherever they take you. It’s also a community in every sense of the word, and that means you’ll develop connections that will literally change your life. Our Living Learning Communities will unite you with people who share your interests. Our faculty will open the door to incredible research and internship experiences. And our career advising and support services will give you the tools you need to excel in your chosen field. Colorado State’s eight colleges encompass the major areas of human knowledge, with more than 150 programs of study in the sciences, arts, humanities and professions. From internationally known programs in veterinary medicine and chemistry to our highly ranked business college, you’ll work with professors who know their fields inside and out. But the faculty at Colorado State are more than just experts who make significant contributions to our understanding of the world. They’re also some of the most talented and personable instructors you’ll ever meet. Whether they’re leading a spirited class discussion or making themselves available outside office hours, your professors will give you the kind of attention you might not expect at a university of 25,000 students. “The professors here aren’t just academically gifted — they really know how to relate to students,” says Jake Blumberg, a senior technical journalism major. “There’s not a communication gap, and they expect us to act like adults. If I could list the best friends I’ve had, some of them would be professors. I feel that makes the education here so much more varied and purposeful.” At Colorado State, you’ll discover that an exceptional education isn’t simply about amassing knowledge. It’s about using what you’ve learned to change lives for the better — and if you choose to pursue your education here, you’ll join forces with students, faculty and alumni who are making an impact on a global scale.
Most professors are “willing to help you however way they can”; their feedback is “honest and beneficial for students.” “Our professors genuinely care, and they leave their legacy on campus by helping students network and make an impact in the community,” says a student. For those in need of extra assistance, there is free tutoring offered for classes in the College of Natural Sciences and College of Liberal Arts. Even though it is a large campus, the school has “so many ways to meet people and create communities on campus that really help you succeed.” Green is god here; no matter what aspect of the university you look at, “everyone is concerned with how their actions affect the environment,” and “many majors look toward educating their students about job opportunities in the green job force.” As for the working world, “an education at CSU is valued and therefore opens up many career opportunities.” The college also “does a great job or bringing resources to campus through speakers, panels, and career fairs.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
