  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

it has a lot of diversity. very small, but pretty campus. easy to get one on one time with professors.
Marlenye from Westminster, CO
I would describe CSU-Pueblo as the school that everyone goes to. Majority of the students from the springs and pueblo area come here because you get a great education for cheap. Its very welcoming and has so many opportunities its impossible to fail here.
