Football always has a great turn-out and fan support, but that is partially because they have won the RMAC Championship five years in a row, and won the NCAA Division II Championship in 2014. They're good! They have by far the best facilities, and other programs get their hand-me-downs.

Everyone else has decent fan support depending on how the season is going. The main difference is whether or not you're on the teams. There are a lot of issues among players and their coaches, but as long as that team is performing well in relation to everyone else in their bracket, the school doesn't care what goes on.

Just like any other school, there will be people and teachers you don't like, but there are way more that you will! I have made some of the best friends I've ever had at this school! With the school being relatively small, athletics are a big part of it! Even if you don't play sports, go to the events! These are the moments you will make the best memories! Everyone is super friendly and you can always find someone with a similar interest! All sporting events are great, they have haunted houses that the arts department puts on every year along with color runs and so many activities to get the student body involved in. If given the opportunity to choose my college again, I would choose this school over and over again in a heart beat!

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.
