Colorado State University

Colorado State University is one of the nation’s top public research universities and an institution on the rise. In the last decade, CSU has produced record enrollment, built on all-time highs in student diversity and student success; groundbreaking research driven by a highly productive faculty;  and, perhaps most important, an unrivaled learning environment where nine of 10 recent graduates say they would choose CSU again and rate their education as excellent.

CSU is dedicated to increasing the number of diverse students on campus because we know that bringing together students from different walks of life improves learning for everyone. With a firm foundation in their land-grant heritage, students at CSU aren’t afraid to think bigger. They aren’t afraid to ask the hard questions or follow their passions. Students here don’t just place value on the results — they embrace the process that got them there.
