Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

3 College Freshman

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

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It is a not a huge priority at this school and many do not take part in the Greek life and those who do are low key about it except on rush week which is expected.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There are ways of getting around without a car however many have never heard of the different ways or they do not understand how they work or they are inconvenient to use.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is not bad but it is not the place for me.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students here are not the type of people I personally get along with but there are a few in my ideal friend group
