For non-traditional students looking for a fresh start at a career-driven university, Colorado State University - Pueblo is a great choice. The academic situation leaves a bit to be desired, with the school's grade inflation and diminished scholarly standards resulting from the increased focus on athletics. However, there are a few programs here that are really wonderful. The business, nursing, and exercise science programs are all great. As an English major, I can also say that the English department is full of some of the most incredible English literary and linguistic scholars thatI've encountered.

The classes are not as challenging as expected and the school spirit is not as great as I expected.

With colleges being so expensive, it is increasingly difficult to find a school which is accredited and affordable. I chose the cheapest school in the state as a stepping stone towards something greater. Admittedly my expectations were low. Despite my skepticism, my college experience so far has been amazing.
