As a top-flight research university, Colorado State is changing lives for the better on a global scale. Whether they’re conducting studies with some of the world’s foremost experts on campus or serving a community on another continent, our students are lending their energy to the causes that matter to them most. But CSU is more than just an exceptional academic institution. It’s also a great environment for an array of activities that promote social networking, professional development and personal growth. By the time our students graduate, they have the knowledge and experience they need to make an impact in whatever field they choose.

Living in the Community

One of the first things our students notice about Colorado State is that it feels a lot smaller than it actually is. Even though CSU is home to 26,735 students and 1,540 faculty members, our collective commitment to academic excellence, mutual respect and community service creates bonds that aren’t easily broken. Our students find common ground as they explore their interests inside and outside the classroom. And once they declare a major in one of our eight colleges, they become part of a close-knit community where gifted individuals achieve great things by working together for the common good.
