Will learn a lot
because of the student teacher ratio I know I will learn alot more and also be more comfortable
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.
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-
Tips for prospective students
get used to the school site!
keep close tab with your first year advisor!

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.
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.

In three sentences
it has a lot of diversity. very small, but pretty campus. easy to get one on one time with professors.
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.
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.
Dorm Life
i have a single room so its great, i have a lot of room. i hate the fact that people in my hall are always so loud. its hard to sleep or study.
Food and Dining
the food is pretty good, it has its good and bad days.
What to do for fun
theres not much here. pueblo is small its either movie, riverwalk or mall.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
at the begining of every year, they have a bond fire its so much fun. the football games are always packed, so much fun.
Clubs and Activities
so many clubs and activities! sports are very popular, there's cheer-leading, football, baseball, and basketball. clubs there student council, christian club, and so many sororities and fraternity's.
Greek Life
is amazing! theres a lot to choose from, im currently in the process to become a lambda theta nu.
Campus Safety

Am learning a lot
I am learning a lot, at Colorado State University Global Campus. It is laid out in a well organized manner and I am always able to find what I am looking for.
Am enjoying being here
I have enjoyed my time thus far at CSU-G so much that I have recommended it to others on several occasions.
Bang for the buck
Yes, I am getting a rigorous state base university education at a great price!
Tips for prospective students
Follow all the steps in your orientation to be able to find everything you need to complete course work fast and effectively. The school has so many resources.
Great for these types of students
Students who are working, have family and children to take care of, and want to go to class on their time and according to their schedule.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Bang for the buck
Of course any college is costly but the education, experiences, and friendships that comes with it is worth every cent.
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?
Great for these types of students
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.

In three sentences
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.
Tips for prospective students
Take a tour!! Get to know the campus.
Come to one of the football games. It gets really intense making home games super fun and exciting.
Academic Rigor
You will be surprised at how difficult some of the classes could be. You for sure have to stay focus and mange your personal life to not fall behind.
Dorm Life
New dorms were just built and are really great to live in!
Food and Dining
Food is O.K The cafe does special nights were they serve different ethnic foods but most of the time its your basic cafe food. We have awesome coffee shops and little corner stores that are really convenient!
What to do for fun
The gym is huge so I enjoy going there. There are always something going on campus for example foam parties, man hunts that make campus life fun.
Bang for the buck
If you graduate in four years you get $1,500!! :)
Great for these types of students
Anyone who is motivated to succeed, but still willing to have fun.
Clubs and Activities
There are so many clubs that most people are in 3 or 4 clubs at a time.
Campus Safety
We have a wet campus so our campus safety is ALWAYS on top of things!

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.
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?
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.
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.
Great for these types of students
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.

I am learning what college is all about. I have met many friends and feel very comfortable here at CSU-Pueblo.
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy the atmosphere at CSU-Pueblo. Everyone is friendly and professors really do care about your success.
Bang for the buck
In comparison, CSU-Pueblo is very competitive in costs. There are many new programs and opportunities here.
Tips for prospective students
If you are interested in a college that is on the leading edge - check out CSU-Pueblo.
Great for these types of students
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.

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 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.
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.
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!
Great for these types of students
This is a great school for early high school graduates wanting a transition school.
