Students who want to spend the next 4 years of their lives surrounded by a brilliantly dynamic landscape of mountains, forests, and canyons needn't look any further than Colorado. The Centennial State is famous for its beauty and has lovers of the outdoors drooling.
There are 48 colleges in Colorado, 30 public and 17 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. Colorado has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.
The flagship of the University of Colorado system is located in Boulder, and offers more than 150 academic programs in a small city that is among the country's most highly-regarded in terms of health, quality of life, and art. Other branches include University of Colorado at Denver and University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
The Professional Veterinary Medicine program at Colorado State University was recently ranked second in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. CSU is located in Fort Collins and offers bachelor's degrees in 55 fields of study.
