    Anyone who likes the outdoors. Outdoor Pursuits plans a lot of hiking/camping/kayaking/biking trips for anyone interested (plus, this is Colorado; you can wander off any old where on your own to bond with nature). Anyone planning on entering the medical field. CSU-P's nursing program seems to be doing especially well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Eat/read/socialize outside, weather permitting. Does wonders for one's mood. Buy your textbooks early; the used ones go fast. Take the stairs; you'll be ready to run marathons in about a week. Don't play in the fountain; they frown on that. Check out the greenhouse, even if you're not a biology major. It's awesome. If you are mathematically inclined, spare a second to examine the math building itself. Someone took the time to integrate significant ideas and patterns (for example, a Fibonacci spiral) into the construction. Argue with your peers and professors (in the philosophical sense; nobody likes a shouting match). This is, in my opinion, the best way to strengthen your own grasp of any subject. Above all, take advantage of the increased freedom college offers. Don't get lazy. Challenge yourself; excel.

    Bang for the buck

    Very affordable, as colleges go. Coloradans can attend for around $4,000 per semester (easily covered with a modest scholarship or two); non-residents, about $14,000 per semester (a significant difference, but still a lot less than at most other colleges). Considering the overall quality, I'm calling this a pretty good deal.

    Am enjoying being here

    The entire experience is immensely enjoyable. The classes are interesting and allow students plenty of freedom to explore further anything they find particularly interesting. The buildings are well-maintained. The entire campus is aesthetically pleasing; plenty of grass and trees for those who like to do their studying in the great outdoors (bonus: the local wildlife is pretty comfortable around humans; you can't help but smile when there's a squirrel at your feet begging for your lunch). And the people (professors, advisers, other students, etc.) have all been very friendly and helpful. What's not to like?

    Am learning a lot

    Learning materials are current and lessons incorporate new scientific findings as they are published. Labs are clean and equipment is in good condition. Professors are friendly and knowledgeable. Tutoring is available if desired. For freshmen, at least, effort is focused on increasing the depth, rather than breadth, of knowledge. Plenty to captivate the active mind, but classes will start out a bit slow for anyone who has taken AP courses or researched their subject of interest independently.

    CSU-Pueblo is great for students that want to work toward a career, but not be lost is the shuffle. CSU-Pueblo is small enough to know that you are here. You are not just a number.

    If you are interested in a college that is on the leading edge - check out CSU-Pueblo.

    Bang for the buck

    In comparison, CSU-Pueblo is very competitive in costs. There are many new programs and opportunities here.

    This is a great school for early high school graduates wanting a transition school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Bring your social skills, your ski coat, and your mind. You're going to be using all three all the time!

    Bang for the buck

    Even with my measley scholarship and a full course load, tuition for me is only in the hundreds. It's definitely affordable for me.

    Am enjoying being here

    I don't live on campus, so I'm not as in the experience, though everyone I know says being here is a great experience. It's a close community both on campus and around the school, and the area is so pretty during all seasons.

    Am learning a lot

    This is the perfect school to fulfill general requirements at the. The setting is peaceful, the teachers are fair and knowledgeable. I like the quiet setting, especially with the non-specific classes I'm taking.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy being here at CSU-P. The campus is not as big as other Universities I've seen and visited and that's what I like about this university. The people are very nice here and it's easy to adjust to everyone. Living in the dorms allows me to meet knew people daily and get to know the campus more.

    Am learning a lot

    At CSU-Pueblo, the class sizes are small, which allows you to get as much help as you need in the course from the professors. In the year and a half that I've been at school here, I learned a lot about everything. This school is well equipped to help you in every subject and get the extra help. They offer tutoring for all general education courses and they offer study sessions with groups of students. The faculty here at CSU-Pueblo are here to help you succeed in your education and are willing to work with you as you're struggling.

    Tips for prospective students

    get used to the school site! keep close tab with your first year advisor!

    Bang for the buck

    The cost of yearly tuition for out of state students is exactly $7,060 for 12 credits a semester! It doesn't get any better than that to me. You will have a hard time trying to find a university that will beat that -for out of state-

    Will enjoy being here

    I have already met lots of pleasant ppl. Although I've never been on campus I'm excited to go and have a feeling the campus is beautiful.

    Will learn a lot

    because of the student teacher ratio I know I will learn alot more and also be more comfortable

    CSU in P-town is great for any students who loves the mountains in CO and a middle size town. The school it self is growing in enrollment. There are many excellent programs offered here.

    Tips for prospective students

    Scholarships!!!!!!!!!! And look at the campus and walk around when there are classes going on..and ask yourself do i see myself here and enjoying it?

    Bang for the buck

    Of course any college is costly but the education, experiences, and friendships that comes with it is worth every cent.

    Am enjoying being here

    My first year was in the dorms which is an interesting experience. There are many clubs on the campus that you can get involved in. The campus is just beautiful and friendly with the sunny days to hang out in the grass with a buddy and chat or with a book and study.

    Am learning a lot

    I have been here for a few semesters. The classes that I have taken have been general ed., but the education I have gained this far has helped me in my summer jobs.

    Great for these types of students

    College is really good for the self motivated but here you are able to find friends in each class that may help push you to do even better. Professors are always there to help push and make you do the best that you can.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get to know your professors. It really helps to show them that you are trying, maybe go in for some help every now and then, it shows them that you really are working hard and they are able to give you the benefit of the doubt if your grade gets into a sticky situation. Also, professors are great references for the future.

    Bang for the buck

    You get a beautiful campus, fantastic teachers and a great education all for around 40 dollars per credit hour, give or take some for the department.

    Am enjoying being here

    It is very easy to slip in and feel like you belong. Professors see you as you not as a number and they are often available for help outside the class room. There are also many groups to join that work outside with the community as well with the campus. It is a great way to get to know many of the people on campus and it is fun to be involved with the community.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers here are fantastic. Most of them really know their material and are able to teach it well. If the teacher stinks, normally you can learn from the reading material and outside help either from friends, other teachers or online sources that the teacher provides.

    Academic Rigor

    most of the classes are small wich makes it easier to focus. lecture classes are not the best, but if placed there always sit in front. some classes are difficult, but asking for help is always a good idea.

    Tips for prospective students

    come in with an open mind. always try to get your know professor, it helps when you have questions on papers. stay away from the cafe food, its not too good ! always stock up on snacks in your room. do not procrastinate.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you've been accepted somewhere else, go there.

    Bang for the buck

    Its a good deal if you're from Colorado, but if you're from out of state it's not worth it. I would rather go to a community college in a nicer city.

    Am enjoying being here

    Pueblo is not exactly classy and there is really nothing for students to do on their free time unless they play a sport. If you are looking forward to college parties, forget about it. The campus is quiet on the weekends and law enforcement is strict. If your a freshman you have to buy a meal plan in which you will eat highly unhealthy food in a high school cafeteria type setting. It feels like 13th grade.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers are great and they are always willing to help you do better.

    The campus is clean and safe.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am running for CSUP and I love the areas to run. We can travel to other areas such as San Isabel or Colorado Springs to have different feels for the competition. The area around the school is open and so nice!

    Bang for the buck

    It's cheaper than other colleges I have checked around Colorado

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in the dorms because my parents live close to campus and it saves more money to live at home. But from the outside the dorm areas are clean and look nice. If I could, I would love to live in a dorm.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep in contact with your advisor and keep up to date on all deadlines.

    Bang for the buck

    All I have to say is I got five thousand dollars back, and I payed for my entire first year of college with the help of CSU-P, so I'm not complaining!

    What to do for fun

    At CSUP their is always something going on. For example, in a week there will be a race on campus that anyone can do and its free for the students. And if you wanted to find things to do, all you have to do Is look at all the posters hanging on the walls, or log onto you school email, It is that easy. Not to mention there is always some sort of event taking place, like a guest speaker, a stand up comedian, you name it. I though it was cool.

    Food and Dining

    CSUP's food, I cant say I have ate at CSU more then once, because I live off campus, but the one time i did eat the food, and It was OK. When you go to the cafeteria, there are three lines each with its own kind food Mexican, and Italian, sort of like a buffet. Once your done picking your food, you grab a cup, pour yourself a drink of chocolate milk, or soda, and eat. Off the record, I have heard bad things about how clean the kitchen is.

    Dorm Life

    I have not lived in dorms yet, but I did visit them once, and lets just say it is no home sweet home. The dorms are nice, considering two of them were just built. The insides are tall, but not exactly wide, the restrooms are nice, and you get to choose your room mate. What I am trying to say is that if you want the college feeling, of having an annoying roommate, or sharing a bathroom, live in dorms, if not, DONT LIVE IN DORMS.

    Academic Rigor

    As a freshmen I would have to say CSU's academic courses are difficult, for the most part. As for myself I felt that some classes were easy and were not that difficult to get an A, but for others I found it was hard to even get a C. So I figure It is balanced between the both just like most schools.

    Tips for prospective students

    If your thinking to yourself I DONT EVER WANT TO GO THERE, I thought the same thing, so believe me it is not as bad as you think.

    In three sentences

    I could honestly say I like CSU-P without getting sick to my stomach. It is fun, and their are a lot of things to do. I'm very glad I attended the home of the Thunder Wolfs.

    Great for these types of students

    First year, undeclared, small town.

    What to do for fun

    Although pueblo is not the largest town, colorado springs is a short 30 minute drive. If you do decide to stay in pueblo the school offers many exciting programs that are sure to entertain.

    Food and Dining

    The food is alright, most of the time its better to prepare your own though.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are mostly new and the rooms are very spacious. I believe that the school should offer a more interactive way to choose dorms and roomates like they do in other colorado schools (UNC, CU, etc.)

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are pretty much what you would expect. Some are hard, some are easy. Its all about how hard youre willing to push yourself.

    Tips for prospective students

    Really look into everything the school offers. Although its not very large they offer many programs that you probably wouldnt expect.

    In three sentences

    The campus is mid sized and easy to get around. Everyone Ive come in contact with has been very helpful. Ultimately, once I got used to the campus I came to like it very much.

    CSU has many clubs and activities that fit the diversity of it's students and their majors. Each major has it's own set of clubs to get students more involved and experienced. They also have activities like mud volleyball for anyone who wants to let out some stress and get dirty.

    Great for these types of students

    CSU is great for a broad range of students because they adapt for the needs of everyone making college a fun learning experience.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The only tradition that might be considered unusual would have to be this new activity called slack lining where students stand on a line about three inches wide and perform tricks while balancing.

    Bang for the buck

    I personally believe that CSU is a little over priced, due to student fees that don't necessarily apply to everyone such as childcare that does not apply to me since I don't have children. Other than that CSU has a great price.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many different things to do for fun such as swimming, bike riding, lifting weights, playing basketball, Frisbee, and many other activities offered by the recreational center.

    Food and Dining

    I have only at in the cafeteria once and the food was really good. I would recommend trying the pizza.

    Dorm Life

    I don't know too much about dorm life because I still live with my parents but I hear the dorms are really nice.

    Academic Rigor

    I personally do not think that CSU Pueblo is that rigorous of a school as long as you pay attention in class and study.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are planning on going to school at CSU all you need to do is study and pay attention in class. You should also keep an eye on your paws account, account balance, and student e-mails because important information is passed through these online places.

    In three sentences

    In my short time at Colorado State University-Pueblo I have learned a lot from the classes and other students. Professors are always there to answer your questions and everyone is very friendly. There has been a few professors that don't lecture enough in class, but overall this is a very good school to attend.

    Great for these types of students

    Very accepting regarding nationalities, sexual orientation, and religious beliefs.

    Bang for the buck

    Good education for the money.

    What to do for fun

    There is a plethora of student activities on campus along with occasional activities in Pueblo itself.

    Food and Dining

    A little over-priced.

    Dorm Life

    Average. It's up to you and your choices as to whether or not you want to party all night or get your work done. Some floors are noisy but study rooms are available in the library.

    Academic Rigor

    Nothing here is harder than anywhere else. Do your best and the professors will recognize that.

    Tips for prospective students

    Study hard and don't party too much. Get involved in student organizations. Spend extra time on campus getting to know others. Remember that you are a representative of higher education, so be courteous, helpful, and show some integrity. Never, ever cheat or plagiarize.

    Campus Safety

    I feel very safe on campus. If you ever do not feel safe the Pueblo Sheriffs Department has their headquarters on campus. There are emergency centers around campus that you can push a button and someone will be right there and you can call a number to be escorted to you car.

    Greek Life

    We have two sororities and two fraternities. I was in the Alpha Sigma Alpha for a little while and loved it but decided to focus on school.

    Clubs and Activities

    CSU-Pueblo has great Clubs and Activities. I am in the Medical Science Society, the President's Leadership Program, and Alpha Lambda Delta. There really is something for everyone and you can start your own club if you want something new.

    Great for these types of students

    CSU-Pueblo is good for any type of student. They have so much to offer. Everyone should be able to find their own crowd to fit in.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    During Freshman orientation every one runs to the fountain and makes a wish with a CSU-Pueblo wooden quarter. They also have a foam party every year.

    Bang for the buck

    At CSU-Pueblo you get a wonderful education for a very low tuition. I have had so many opportunities due to what a small university it is that I would not have had anywhere else.

    What to do for fun

    Their are so many clubs and athletics people can get involved. There is something to go to every night of the week. As long as you look at The T-wolf Howl (located on the bathroom doors) you will know what's going on.

    Food and Dining

    I don't eat in the cafeteria that often but their food is not that bad. The Starbucks coffee cart in the Life Science Building is awesome! Also I here the Cantina and the coffee shop in the library are really nice too.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in the dorms but I have been in them and have not been impressed. I also have friends that hate living in the dorms. It really depends which dorm you are in though...do NOT get Belmont.

    Academic Rigor

    My program, biology, strives to provide academic rigor but I can't attest to other programs. I definitely have to study more than I did in high school but I am still doing well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just be yourself. I was automatically accepted due to my grades and ACT score but don't get discouraged if you are not. Once you are accepted and attend here, don't be afraid to approach other students or staff, everyone is very helpful.

    In three sentences

    I absolutely love CSU-Pueblo! The opportunities provided to the students by the staff and extra curricular activities are astounding. I am so happy I chose to attend CSU-Pueblo!

    Many activities at the campus are free to students! My friends and I enjoyed going to the comedy shows on Wednesdays. There are also movie nights and a disc golf course on campus.

    Food and Dining

    Their cafeteria has delicious food for a reasonable price

    Dorm Life

    I never lived in the dorms, so I do not know how it is thus the three-star rating.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to ask anybody questions! Everybody is willing to help each other out in some way.

    Campus Safety

    A few years ago people wrote on a black board threatening to bomb the school late at night. The FBI got involved only to find out it was a joke. A cop drives around occasionally but the students are definitely not briefed on how to handle an emergency. We do have an emergency text service for people with cell phones.

    Greek Life

    The Greeks seemed to be very outspoken in this campus community.

    Clubs and Activities

    This college seems to do average in this category. There is a club/organization for every major along with the typical Sororities. I have not seen any unique clubs specific to this campus.

    Great for these types of students

    It is great for students who live in or near Pueblo. Otherwise I would tell you not to waste your money unless you have a scholarship.

    Bang for the buck

    This semester it is going to cost me over $3000 in tuition alone for 12 credit hours. I am no financial expert but that just does not seem right.

    What to do for fun

    There are always activities going on around campus. They range from cultural movies to guest speakers to sports activities. Going to football game is the biggest event on campus. CSU-Pueblo has had a great record the past couple of years.

    Food and Dining

    The food is really expensive. Last semester is was a $1.79 for bottle of water. You can get a bottle of water for $1-1.25 most places. $5 at one of the carts or dining places on campus is typically just enough to get you a container of fruit and maybe a drink. Coffee typically is at least $3. Compared to outside sources of food, I give this a low rating.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are way too expensive in my opinion so I live off campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses in my opinion take time and dedication to complete. It is easy to pass with a C but to get the grades you need for graduate school then you will have to put a lot of time and effort into the academics.

    Tips for prospective students

    One tip would be to not take more classes you can handle. Half of my freshmen class dropped out by the end of the semester because most of them did not understand the concept of going to class and doing the work. If it overwhelms you, then withdraw or drop the course before the deadline. Always show up at least 10 minutes early for the bigger classes like Human Anatomy and Physiology. Don't be afraid to ask questions or call in to any of the departments. Sometime mistakes happen like in Financial Aid.

    In three sentences

    Colorado State University-Pueblo has a very diverse group of students ranging in age, ethnicity, and cultures. Tutoring along with other campus resources are very obtainable to students. Most of the class sizes seem to demonstrate a more one on one relationship with the instructors.

    The tuition is fairly decent here at CSU-P. And you are able to really utilize a lot on campus that is included in your tuition and fees. We have an amazing library and great fitness center. As well as being able to contact professors whenever you need to really get the grasp on the material. They are always willing to help, which makes the money you are spending to take their class worth it.

    What to do for fun

    Seeing that Colorado State University- Pueblo is in such an outdoors state, there are always outdoor activities going on. The campus has a great Frisbee Golf Course set up. And by joining different groups on campus you can experience just about anything here. There is an inviting group for ever hobby on campus.

    Food and Dining

    The food on campus is wonderful. Whether looking for a snack, some coffee, or a full meal there are multiple locations on campus that can accommodate what you are looking for.

    Dorm Life

    While I haven't lived on campus at CSU-P, I have been in the dorm facilities. All are welcoming and are a true home away from home. The dorm experience at any school can be an interesting, but here they really engage with student activities to create a positive community.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors do expect a lot out of their students and will challenge your thought process in many different ways. But the work load is never unbearable and help is always available to help students succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to speak with the different departments that you are looking into as well as taking a campus tour. There is nothing better then talking with staff and faculty while on campus to really get the feel of the community you are thinking about joining.

    Campus Safety

    Paths from the academic buildings to the dorms and to Wolf Village (on campus apartments) are very well lit and have emergency alarms in case something happens and a student needs assistance as soon as possible. The campus is very well lit and the sheriff's department is located right on campus and deputies walk around campus and are easy access in case of an emergency.

    Clubs and Activities

    Our band is very entertaining, our football team made it to the NCAA D-2 championships during the 2011 season, the drama and art department is also excellent and well known throughout our town.

    Great for these types of students

    Every kind of student is welcomed at Colorado State University Pueblo, whether you are a band geek, business major, pre med major, or athletes. There is literally something for everyone to enjoy.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    At the beginning and end of each semester, the university holds a foam dance party in front of one of the dorms where a big pool is filled up with foam and music is playing and it is just one big fun dance party. Also, at the beginning of the semesters the student activities organization has a night where the students run around campus around midnight with chalk and draw whatever they want and in the morning it's one big easel.

    Bang for the buck

    Colorado State University Pueblo is located in a small town which is pretty safe for the most part. There is always something to do on campus whether it is going to a football game or visiting the Recreation center for a game of basketball or for a run.

    What to do for fun

    Football games and other sports events, the campus also has plenty of things to do such as movie nights, rock climbing, and the outdoor pursuits club goes on some pretty fun adventures in the mountains and throughout Colorado.

    Food and Dining

    The main cafeteria has decent food, the pizza is the best. But downstairs of the Occiato building we just got an Einstein's Bagel company and it is my pit stop before my morning classes.

    Dorm Life

    I do not or have not lived in the dorms but my visits to see my friends who do live there have been outstanding. The three new dorms (Crestone, Culebra, and Greenhorn) are clean and have everything that is needed for a successful student.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics provided at CSUP are outstanding and since the campus isn't really big, professors give you one on one attention and office hours are made sure to be known the first day of class.

    Tips for prospective students

    College is much different than high school, you are on your own and are responsible for your own actions. Make sure to get your homework done on time and study HARD in order to keep your grades up. Also, do not be afraid to ask professors or assistants for help, that's what they are there for.

    In three sentences

    I give Colorado State University Pueblo a rating of five stars. The college is not only within a great town but there are so many activities that the college provides for students. Also, because of the small class size, the professors give extra attention to the students and help them one on one.

    We have emergency stations throughout the whole campus that light up blue constantly. There's a button you push and campus police respond within ten seconds. I feel really safe with these around for those just in case emergencies.

    Clubs and Activities

    CSU-P has a club for just about anything. If they don't have the club you are looking for, they will make it.

    What to do for fun

    The rec center provides trips almost every weekend to go kayaking, fishing, biking, rock climbing and more. The first week in school I biked down pikes peak. That was a rush and a ton of fun.

    Food and Dining

    After PT in the mornings I always attend breakfast at the cafeteria and I have nothing bad to say about the food there. Everything you could think of for breakfast they have it including fresh fruit, bagels, pancakes, waffles, bacon, french toast... you get the picture. Everything is delicious.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately I do not live in the dorms, but I do have some friends that do. From their responses about them, I hear that they enjoy being in a housing area that they can meet friends easily. They talk about all the activities that the dorms host and make me wish I was living there.

    Academic Rigor

    Our business program I hear is pretty efficient and so is the psychology program here at CSU-P. I am motivated in the biology program that I am in because of the competitiveness and the fact that the instructors clearly explain the material so that you will excel in the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tips that I would give prospective students would be to use your resources on campus. The librarians help you with research papers by finding the sources that relate to your topic most. The tutoring center can help you with any problem you may have with math, chemistry, biology, or anything. The writing center helps you go over your papers sentence by sentence to help perfect your writing techniques.

    Clubs and Activities

    Almost every type of major, emphasis, or fad is recognized at CSU-Pueblo. Since it is a little smaller than other universities, more clubs and activities can be offered.

    Bang for the buck

    CSU-Pueblo should be a high priority for each home-town student because of all the benefits offered. The benefits are that the tuitition is inexpensive, boarding costs don't cost an arm and a leg, and all the go-to places are already known.

    What to do for fun

    CSU-Pueblo has different activities for students to do for fun on and off campus. Activities range from drive-in movies in the parking lots in to hiking trips in the summer and snowball fights to ice skating in the winter.

    Food and Dining

    There are many different outlets for food options that offer a variety of food each day so that it is convenient and quick from class-to-class or for the leisure time. It is inexpensive and has good quality. This is all not even to mention the time and gas you save from driving on and off campus.

    Dorm Life

    I personally do not live on campus, but I hear good things about living in the dorms. I know there are different options for living on campus which allows more students to have housing options. Allowing them to experience life in the classroom and outside the classroom is great.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on the subject and professor each student has different chances to click with the material so they may experience it differently from others, but if each student keeps an open mind about the course then they can be challenged and enjoy the work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to class! Take every opportunity seriously! And meet new people!

    In three sentences

    Being a native, I believe that CSU-Pueblo is a smart choice for college. It has a vast variety between activities and people. With the diverse opportunities offered, CSU-Pueblo should be an option on everyone's list.

    If i had to rate CSU-Pueblo i would have to give it four out of five stars, one reason being that this school is not as expensive as other colleges, but it gives you the knowledge you need to move forward in life.. I believe that CSU-Pueblo is a very good school academically wise, the teachers are available for one on one time and they are there to help us. The only reason i did not say five out of five is because the campus is not as nice as other schools, but they make up for it by the teachers they have.

    I have not been deep enough into my major where I have had rigorous classes, however I have learned a great bit due to the small class sizes and interaction of student-to-teacher. Attendance truly is half the battle. Stay vocal, and you wont have a problem with excelling in classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise to live on campus, there is not any other experiences like it. Stay involved in sports teams, as CSUP provides many intramural and club sports. Have an idea of what you would like to do, and the counselors will take it from there.

    In three sentences

    The University I attend has guided me in a direction of truly finding out who I am. Though i have had to overcome more struggles than most during the time I have spent here, CSUP has helped tremendously. The only flaw is the city's resources are far from the campus.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is extremely safe, I don't see why anybody would be afraid while attending for any reason.

    Bang for the buck

    I think there could be some major changes to make CSU-Pueblo a better bang for the buck school. For example: the food, change who delivers the food to the school because it just isn't very appetizing. Also make the academics more rigorous so the students get a more in-depth understanding of their courses. Other than that, CSU-Pueblo is worth attending for some time.

    What to do for fun

    The Rec Center is an excellent start for fun. There is usually pick-up games of basketball going on, there is plenty to do in the gym. If that's not your particular taste, make friends and i guarantee that good times await. Best way to do that is to leave your dorm room unlocked or opened and eventually people will be interested to come meet you. Also be social with classmates.

    Food and Dining

    I was disappointed in the dining at CSU-Pueblo. The only decent food is downstairs in the cantina, which is only opened for lunch. The variety is good, but the quality is poor so it just depends on whether the student favors quality or quantity.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are great! There always seems to be something going on in one of the neighboring rooms. The people in the hall are typically friendly and nice so be sure to introduce yourself, and just have fun.

    Academic Rigor

    I give the Academic Rigor an average because most of the classes are easy if the student pays attention and does the necessary work. There are difficult courses however, whether it is the teacher or the actual class contexts that are challenging.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be involved in programs and activities, the games are always a lot of fun to go to. Use the facilities to the fullest extent, that's what you're paying for. Be friendly and the time will fly, but stay focused on your academics at the same time.

    In three sentences

    Greek Life

    There are currently 3 Greek organizations on campus Alpha Lambda Chi, Alpha Sigma Alpha, and Lambda Theta Nu. CSU-Pueblo is also in the process of trying to get Alpha Kappa Alpha started on campus. Alpha Lambda Chi is the only fraternity on campus while Alpha Sigma Alpha, and Lambda Theta Nu, and Alpha Kappa Alpha are sororities.

    Clubs and Activities

    Joining clubs on campus is a great way to network and meet new people so I highly encourage it. We have a plethora of clubs on campus, you name it, we probably have it and if we don't, it is very simple to start your own. Some clubs are academic and honor society based, while others are just made up of people who share the same interests. No matter what you're in to, give a club and/or organization a try because its a great way to get yourself out there on campus and makes your college experience a lot more enjoyable.

    What to do for fun

    The Office of Student Activities on campus brings a lot of great people to campus for the students benefit and entertainment such as comedians, motivational speakers, and the annual student concert. As far as off campus is concerned, the zoo, the river walk, nature and raptor center, and reservoir are great places to go for fun!

    Food and Dining

    To be honest, the food was not my favorite, but you are always offered different choices on what you want you want to eat. There are 3 food kiosks on campus as well as the cantina which I personally like much better than the cafeteria. Should you go to those places, order a burrito, they're awesome and the most popular on campus .

    Dorm Life

    Within the last 5 years, 3 brand new dormitories were built on campus and each of them is an extremely great place to live. In the lobby area, there are games such as pool and ping pong for the residents to play in addition to a flat screen TV and couches for the residents to hang out on. Each dormitory has a computer lab and a study room for students to utilize when necessary. The rooms themselves are the perfect size and allow for a lot of room to share. At the end of each hall, there are TV�s that residents can hang out and watch which allows for hall bonding. If I could do it all over again I would. Living in the dorms is a great way to meet new people and develop life-long friendships.

    Academic Rigor

    As a biology major I would comment that the academics are very challenging, but nothing that you can't handle with a great deal of studying and hard work. All of my classes have been very challenging, but what helped me the most was using the tutoring services available. I cannot comment on the rigor of other disciplines because I do not have any firsthand knowledge, but I am sure that each discipline has its own area of difficulty where many students struggle. However as mentioned before, it�s nothing that can't be overcome by using the resources available to you on campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    Cut costs for college by RENTING your books! I almost never buy from the bookstore; you can find books on other sites such as Chug or Amazon much cheaper. My second tip would be to use the resources that are available to you on campus. If you find that you are struggling in a particular class, don't be afraid to ask questions or get help because there are ample amounts of tutoring centers on campus in which you can receive assistance. We are fortunate in that we attend a smaller university with smaller class sizes and have the opportunity to talk face to face with our professors. The professors are also available outside of class during their office hours, which I advise you to use to your advantage as well. My final piece of advice would be don't forget to take a break. Your primary focus is being a student and excelling in your coursework, but don't get too bogged down and forget to have fun as well. College is the best 4 years of your life, have fun and study hard!!

    In three sentences

    CSU-Pueblo is a great place to be if you enjoy a smaller campus, smaller class sizes, and a more family-like and friendly atmosphere. You have many resources available to you in the way of tutoring, teachers who makes themselves available, technology, and a library that is great for studying in groups or by yourself if you so choose. Outside of the classroom, there are many great on campus activities, clubs, and organizations to become a part of, not to mention our football team which is ranked #1in the country; GO PACK!

    Campus Safety

    There is a part of the Pubelo County Sherriff office that is right on campus to keep everyone safe. Not just hired security guards.

    What to do for fun

    They have so much to do especially for the first week. They had little things going on around campus for the weekend before school started. There was an involvement fair, a paint splattering war, splash day is coming up, and a speaker: David Garabaldi. (sp?) There was more too. Also they have a Rec Center that has a whole bunch of free fitness classes, and a swimming pool.

    Food and Dining

    The food is really good. I have many food allergies: Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, Cashews, and Barley. I'm actually able to eat here, and not just salad so that makes me happy.

    Dorm Life

    I personally have an awesome dorm life. Every one is really friendly; my roomate, my floormates, my RA. It's really awesome here.

    Academic Rigor

    It's not extremely hard or anything, but the work load can be heavy, depending on what classes are taken. But the classes are very interesting, and the professors are knowledgebale. They really stress how important an education is.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be outgoing, and friendly. Be responsible: your education and choices are up to you, not your professors. They can't make you do anything but what you want to do. Only you can make yourself do it. Be open minded. You're not going to agree with everything that your professors are going to tell you, but be respectful and listen. Be prepared to learn

    I've only been in Colorado State University-Pueblo for a few days, but I absolutely love it. The professors are amazing; they really take the time to get to know you a little, and to work with you. My dorm floor is really friendly, as are most of the students here so there are a lot of possible friends to make.

    Clubs and Activities

    Plenty of clubs to get involved in! Just do it!

    Great for these types of students

    Any student who loves the outdoors. Colorado has quite a bit to offer.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a wolf that howls at football games.

    Bang for the buck

    I've received a good amount of money to come here but it is still expensive.

    What to do for fun

    I'm a competitive long boarder so Colorado is my playground.

    Food and Dining

    Food is pretty good for a college. They do have healthy options to eat which is very important to me.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is excellent. However, I live with the honor students so we are in the best dorm. The building is very new.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor is like any state school, quite a bit of homework. It is college, what do you expect?

    Tips for prospective students

    Get your work done then play. Do not get behind on your school work I don't know why you would in the first place when college is so expensive.

    In three sentences

    It is quite a community oriented college. The people here are nice. I have been quite impressed with my engineering professors. Overall i'm happy with my decision with coming to Colorado for school, plus I am in the honors program.

    What to do for fun

    Well there are many fun things to do in Pueblo. There are many great restaurants to eat at and the movie theater is close to campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    Register early and find out about as many scholarships as possible. Ask around about the Professors on campus so you know which professors might fit your learning needs.

    In three sentences

    CSU-P is a great school to attend. I have a great experience with all my Professors. Also staff at the University are very helpful if you have any questions about the campus.

    Campus Safety

    Campus life is very safe. There aren't very many problems on campus annually.

    Greek Life

    Plenty of Greek Life opportunities around campus if that's the life you're in to.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are lots of different clubs and intramural sports opportunities on campus. My favorite is the Outdoor Pursuits club that goes on hiking and skiing trips often for huge discounted prices.

    Great for these types of students

    If you're looking to get a good education at a reasonable cost, then this is a good choice. There are tons of extra curriculars you can get involved in from Greek Life to intramural sports and clubs. Great weather with 300+ days of sun per year and mild winters makes CSU-Pueblo a great school, and with just about any outdoor activity you could want located within a two hour drive.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I wouldn't say there are very many unusual traditions or locations on campus. It's a standard campus with all of the amenities one could ask for. The only real tradition is the predicable loosing season of the men's soccer team. Coach Roy Stanley has lead the Thunder Wolves to only five winning seasons in the last twenty years.

    Bang for the buck

    CSU-P is a great value for the money. Compared to it's big brother CSU-Fort Collins, you can expect to take roughly four semesters of classes at CSU-Pueblo for the same price you'd pay for only three semesters at CSU-Fort Collins.

    What to do for fun

    I like to ride my bike and fish at the Pueblo Reservoir in the summer/spring, and go skiing in the winter. There are plenty of places for outdoor activities.

    Food and Dining

    Never lived on campus and I eat lunch when I get home from classes so I can't speak about the food and dining experience at CSU-P.

    Dorm Life

    I never lived in the dorms so I can't say.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics can be fairly rigorous depending on the major you decide to pursue. However, CSU-P is far from Stanford or Harvard level of studies.

    Tips for prospective students

    Figure out what you want to study before you begin school. I wasted many years bouncing between colleges and majors before I finally took the time to do some soul searching and pursue what I'm truly passionate about.

    In three sentences

    I would rate the overall experience as average. Class sizes are relatively small and all of the teachers are actual professors... there aren't any TA's teaching classes. Climate is nice most of the year as Pueblo is classified as a semi-desert so the cold doesn't usually last too long and snow doesn't stay on the ground more than a few days.

    Campus Safety

    This campus has security cameras that are on 24/7 and on every building at different angles to assure a full campus view. The campus also offers security escorts to your car if necessary and there are security call buttons all over. There is also a separate police station or office on campus.

    Greek Life

    Colorado State University - Pueblo Has four different Sororities and Fraternities. They host mixers and get to know each other and have a large concern for student life and education. The Greek students are required to have a certain grade point average and they are required to attend a class of their own where they are educated on the history and Symbols of Greek Sororities and Fraternies.

    Clubs and Activities

    This University offers clubs and activities for everyone to enjoy. They range from Bible Studies and Dance Classes to Club Athletics and Book Clubs.

    Great for these types of students

    Colorado State University - Pueblo is a great college for literally anyone. There is always something for everyone to do. The only people that would not like this University would be those who want an easy education without needing to put in any effort.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    A new tradition is the 33 things to do before you graduate list. It is a campus wide list based on open student ideas and then a survey to choose the top 33 thins to be put on the Bucket List; 33 was the chosen number because CSU - Pueblo was established in 1933. A location would definitely be the spirit rock which is actually miles from the actual campus is the prairie behind the school.

    Bang for the buck

    Colorado State University - Pueblo does everything that it can to assure that students are saving money. They offer campus scholarships, and they branch out with other community businesses to supply scholarships. CSU - Pueblo also is in association with Pepsi that ensures there is no tuition increase.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something planned for students, the dorms host movie nights and pajama parties in the lounges on weekends. Student Activities hosts concerts, dances, and dinners. There are a ton of campus clubs that host mixes, studies, meet and greets and so much more.

    Food and Dining

    Food is average but it is sure that there is always pizza and a great desert table. Depending on the day there is always a hot meal, fast food, light meals, snacks, and drinks offered and the drink station has so much to choose from. There is also Einsteins and a concessions to buy from, as well as Starbucks and other coffee stops on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in the dorms but when visiting I always have a great time. The dorms have study halls and computer labs for students to study and complete homework, as well as community lounges where students can commence in different activities. The dorms all have wifi, cable, and there is always someone at the front desk to assure that if you need help, you have someone to assist you.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are great here and they offer so many different majors. The Hasan School of Business is AACSB accredited, which puts it as a top 10% business education in the U.S. The Music department takes it's students to foreign countries to learn and study and the Nursing Program holds its student to high and strict standards even to just apply. CSU - Pueblo holds its students to very high academic and standards and upholds very high educational programs.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you plan on attending, it is so important to apply for scholarships through the school and to register for classes early; classes fill up so fast. Colorado State University - Pueblo is very supportive of it's students and so it is very important that you get to know your teachers, they will help you in every way that they can to assure you are successful. Be sure to get to know your fellow students, it is great to know people with different majors and aspects of life, it educates you personally.

    In three sentences

    In the two years that I have been at Colorado State University - Pueblo, I have never loved school more. There is so much support and school spirit and our football team is currently a three time RMAC Champions and Playoff team. CSU - Pueblo is more than a college campus it's a community and a home.
