3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: CSU-Pueblo is supposed to be a dry campus. Alcohol is prohibited in the dorms, as is marijuana and other illicit drugs. Parking permits are required, but the tickets are very cheap if you do get one. If you have a reason to dispute the ticket, such as your hanging permit fell off the mirror or you have a permit, but your forgot to switch it to the vehicle you are driving, the officers are good about listening and cancelling the ticket if you do possess a permit.

Facilities: CSU-Pueblo has done an excellent job with remodeling the library, sports complexes and fields, and building the new student rec center. However, many of their classrooms are older and a bit out-dated.

Off-Campus Housing: I live in a 4-plex unit I rented, and it's about 3 miles from the school. There are side walks between my apartment and the school, so I can bike to school.

Scholarships: Get started on it early! The more time you have to iron out everything and inquire why things weren't loaded or received the happier (financially) you will be. I have had to basically harass the staff to make sure that I get the financial aid I expect every year and still have communication problems throughout the year concerning it. Dealing with the financial aid office is never fun, but anyone will tell you to do it and be patient but make sure you get your point across and the money you were promised.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Football. Football. Football.....and then there's the rest of the school year or something.

Football is a HUGE part on campus, everyone goes to the games, home games are free for students, and there are tons of events revolving around it.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: It's a cafeteria. I would recommend going to the cantina, it may be a little extra but every now and then couldn't hurt for better food. There are a few food outlets in a few buildings, but I wouldn't say I go to CSU-P for the food.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Depending on where, some parties can be worth going to. A lot of parties are held on campus, but can lead to a lot of trouble because there is always underage drinking. So it is best to stay clear of those parties, but if you have a good group of friends then you will usually hear about a weekend party around. It's not crucial you attend any of the parties, but if you are looking to interact with new people around campus it's one way to do so.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is not that big of a deal. I am not sure, but I think there is only one fraternity and two sororities. It doesn't really matter if you are apart of one or not.

4 College Junior

Majors: As a psychology major, I have experienced a broad generalized introduction into a variety of subjects in psychology. I have bonded with a few professors and have learned a great deal. The workload, depending on the class and the professor, can vary from solely discussion-based to quizzes and papers every week. I think the program offers a good variety for psych majors.

College Junior

Majors: Internships are student-based. Meaning, if you plan to pursue an internship it is up to you to find one and discuss the possibilities with your advisor. For psych majors it is a little bit easier to find internships, but I could imagine it would be hard and fairly intimidating to look for internships without guidance and help. Teaching assistants are available, and just like anything else in life can be easily obtained if you know the right people.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The library is the most up-to-date building and is where the majority of the students can socialize, grab a coffee, study, and use the space for group work. The other buildings are quite neglected. In one building, it seems as though the air conditioner is never off, even in the winter. New staircases were installed for the psychology building in May/June and they are already rusting and wavering. The university is only concerned about making money and highlighting only what they want the public to know.

3 College Junior

Academics: I am so glad to be done with this school after this coming year. The idea that we have the money to build a new building for general classes, when this past year we had issues with budget cuts and financial restraints so bad that we had to let some professors go is ridiculous. Those in charge at this school DO NOT handle the finances as they should and take advantage of those who pay for their education.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't really seen or sampled any of the off-campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Pueblo is a big center and advocate for acceptance and ethnic diversity.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm in one of the better dorms, which is a major plus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: It's located in the student center, which is pretty convenient.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Their sports teams are very prevalent, and have won a few championships.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have a good counseling program and a very large health building.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: From who I've met so far, they're very open and welcoming.

4 College Freshman

Majors: They have a very diverse range of available programs.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It was easy, I met the co-manager of the radio station and department head.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Applying was really easy, and I'm surprised people complain about it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They offer a few, but they mostly cater to minorities.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are some decent places close to the campus, mostly ethnic.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not many local options or variety.

Colorado State University Pueblo is in a small town, so going to this school is a different kind of University experience. Someone who is interested in having large lecture classes, seeing different people every day, or even attending big events all of the time is not going to enjoy this campus and what the University atmosphere is all about. The average class size is about 30 students, and the big lecture classes only hit about 50 people. It’s a small community; everywhere you go, you will know at least one other person. The campus size can be compared to a high school, so compared with other colleges, it’s not big at all. However, a small campus means less going on all of the time, including shows, speakers, or even weekend parties.

There are advantages to attending a smaller school, though. Closer connections with professors benefit students with their grades as well as with individualized attention during and after class. There is nothing wrong with this school if you are interested in this kind of environment. Also, with a small university, tuition is cheaper. Many students would attend the University again if they had a do-over due to the favorable factors including the small classes, more attention from professors, and lower tuition prices. However, many students would not attend this school for their graduate degrees, as the school is not as impressive compared to other schools available.
