Colorado State University (CSU) is one of the leading research universities in the nation. Some of their research includes atmospheric science, clean energy technologies, infectious diseases, and environmental science. Students that go to this college have the opportunity to work alongside the faculty. In addition, they have the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research as early as their freshman year.
CSU was founded in 1870, six years before Colorado became a state, and was originally named Colorado Agricultural College. Under the Morrill Act of 1862, it was one of 68 land-grant colleges that were established, and when it opened its doors in 1879, the enrollment was 19 students. In 1957, it was renamed Colorado State University. The college is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains and the western edge of the Great Plains in the city of Fort Collins.
Today, the enrollment consists of students from more than 80 countries and every US state. For the students, there are 13 residence halls that have a capacity of around 5,300 students plus apartments for students with families and for working graduate students.
For Colorado residents, this is the “university of choice.” Those attending Colorado State University can choose a major in science, engineering, math, and technology.
