College Sophomore

Computers: The computers work great and there are many on campus. Having your own computer is nice, but not completely necessary. The internet is average and works on my computer every time I use it.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not involved in sports on campus and have never attended a game, but the facilities are quite nice from what i have seen and heard

College Sophomore

Transportation: I have a car. Campus isn't very far from my apartment and the buses are easy to take and reliable.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I do not party. I focus on work and my studies.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: From what I see people are very accepting and the campus has a variety of ethnicity.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I live off campus so it makes it hard to judge the policies that don't apply to me personally.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I do not live on campus, but what i see is some people smoking a joint around campus. I don't really see alcohol use

3 College Sophomore

Weather: When it snows, it is hard to get up and walk to class. But most of the time it is fine.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We had a few attempted sexual assaults at the beginning of the year, but the campus made some changes and I haven't heard of any since! I feel like the blue lights on campus could be placed in more convenient spots on campus. I think they need to get rid of the bike cops because it's a stupid way to make money, and I feel like they sit in spots on campus that really don't need to be patrolled. I haven't used the health center, so I don't know how I feel about that

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team did well this year and our girls volleyball team did really well too! I went to some football and some volleyball games and had fun! The students that go to the games seem to get really into it and it makes for a fun environment. I absolutely love out rec center, it's huge and has a lot of equipment!

College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid but didn't receive any

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't looking into off-campus housing much. But I know multiple new apartments and town homes have been added to campus within the past 2 years!

College Freshman

Majors: I have not participated in an internship program yet! I do plan on having an internship because I feel like it will help me network and expand my contacts when I enter the job field. I don't have any concerns about finding an internship because I have heard nothing but success stories when it comes to finding an internship!

5 College Freshman

Majors: The Human Development and Family Studies Program is the best program on campus! The workload is totally manageable, but I still feel like I am learning a lot of interesting things about our development throughout our lifetime. The teachers are so understanding, and are passionate about what they teach. You can tell that they all love their job, and really want to help us become great students too!

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't really participate in the nightlife on campus, I'd rather stay in my dorm and watch movies or play games with the people in my hall!

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am loving my Human Development and Family Studies classes! The workload isn't too bad, but I feel like I am learning a lot about child development! The Behavior Science Building, which is where my major is located, is a new building on campus with a huge, gorgeous lecture hall! So far, I have absolutely no complaints about my major.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I know that Greek life is present within our campus, and I have driven by the houses that they live in, but I did not rush, and I don't have any friends that are apart of Greek life on campus!

College Freshman

Transportation: I don't use the public transportation on or around campus because I live on campus, but I know that their is transportation available and I have heard that is pretty reliable!

4 College Freshman

Weather: Colorado is known to have crazy, unpredictable weather, but I don't mind it at all! It doesn't snow too much in Ft. Collins, and the sunny days outnumber the snowy/dreary days!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I currently live in Aspen Hall and I absolutely LOVE it! I love living on campus because it gives me easy access to everything including the dining halls, the gym, and my classes! Aspen Hall has air conditioning which is really nice during the summer months, and it the dining hall is really nice too! The rooms are nice and big and allows my roommate and I to have our own space, I also really enjoy having our own bathroom that is in our room!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: You'll find an option for whatever you're looking for, but the best options go to those who don't wait until the last minute to find housing. There's plenty of pet friendly options, too, so bring your favorite four-legged family member along!

Scholarships: Look, submit your FASFA and you'll get what the federal government would give you no matter where you go. Apply as a college freshman and you'll have several opportunities to get scholarships automatically, and plenty to apply for. Each year there's an easy-to-fill-out application for yearly awarded scholarships, so do that and you might have a chance. Don't expect too many options for people who can't demonstrate financial need. And don't expect work study opportunities unless you can demonstrate financial need.

Local Atmosphere: Fort Collins is a fantastic city. There's affordable options for every budget, but a really stupid rule limiting a house to three unrelated persons, so you won't get the super super cheap options of splitting rent four or five ways without breaking the law. And yes, that's strictly enforced, so trying to get around it is REALLY not recommended. The city's atmosphere is great; there's plenty to do and a great community.

Campus Strictness: Look, the administration is strict where it needs to be. The city doesn't tolerate noise violations and you WILL get in trouble the first time you have one. Parking violations are fairly strictly regulated, so don't park over the lines (unless the ground's covered in snow, then you're excused) and don't park places where you don't have a permit to park. That said, you first offense for parking/traffic ON CAMPUS is a warning. Go to the CSU PD and explain how sorry you are and how you'll never do it again, and they'll drop the ticket.

Weather: 300 days of sunshine? Some snowfall to give you better skiing and snowboarding? Colorado weather is the best. BUT, it's unpredictable. You will have a week where it's 75* one day, -10* and snowing the next, and 68* the day after; Colorado likes to do things like that. You'll also have random weeks of upper 70s in the middle of winter and random days of snowfall toward the end of spring. The unpredictability factor aside, though, the weather is great, and you'll really love it. As long as you buy a nice jacket for winter.
