Colorado State University

A public research university located in Fort Collins, Colorado, CSU is the proud home to over 30,000 doers, builders and makers committed to making the world a better place. Our focus rests on research, innovation and creating a more sustainable world via hands-on learning in over 200 programs of study. Students don't shy away from getting their hands dirty - over 60% of Rams take part in an internship and half are involved in a club or student organization. At CSU, we think bigger. We ask the hard questions, follow our passions, and take pride in the process as much as the result.
