4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love going to games!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I love all the different off-campus housing options!

2 College Freshman

Administration: There's no amount of "strictness" at my school.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are good parties I've been to fairly close to campus

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Overall, the quality of the dining hall food isn't that bad. However, it's very unhealthy and the lack of nutritional options and repetitiveness of the food they do offer is disappointing.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For the most part, I really enjoy living on campus! I like being so close to everything and I made a lot of new friends, however, it'a hard living in such a small space with other people.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of unique housing options in Fort Collins. A lot of the apartment complexes are designed for students and their needs, which is great...except the prices.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Any type of food you can imagine WILL be in Fort Collins. There are an endless number of chains and pubs that provide great service and food. Even at 2 am, you will be able to find at least a couple places that will deliver to you.

2 College Freshman

Administration: One way or the other, you're going to get a ticket your first year here. Whether it's from the bike police, being busted for alcohol, or being busted for smoking, you'll pay a fine. Parking enforcement LOVES to hand out tickets. However, if you keep it down and to yourself, there will be little problems.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wouldn't say it was a bad or good experience. With a little help from parents and financial advisers, the process will be less of a hassle.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Either you're at a party with little amenities and people, or you're at a party with little amenities and a ton of people. Either way, it's not much fun. Every once in a while, you'll score a party worth staying at for the next 30 min before the cops arrive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not too bad! The food is always fresh and well cooked, although little variety becomes a problem. I love the availability of vegetarian and vegan dishes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are clean and provide great space for students to live happily. Although most dorms and far from educational buildings, this is compromised with a lot of green space for outdoor activities and enjoyment. The communities within the dorms and dining halls always provide community activities and events.

Altogether, it's been a pleasure living on the CSU campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many places available, but there is a fair population of bad landlords and trashy neighbors. It is difficult sometimes to get to CSU from many of these locations, but there are plenty of bus stops around.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Fort Collins has an enormous amount of restaurants, and many of them are excellent. Old Town is full of places with fantastic atmosphere, awesome food, and of course options for vegans and vegetarians. The culture and food are outstanding.

2 College Freshman

Administration: For the most part, CSU is suitably lenient and reasonable about enforcing rules and administrating policies. However, their parking policies and enforcement are outrageous. The smallest infractions are punished with large fines, and it seems like the police are out en force to leech money from people who are already very low on money. It's ridiculous.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a scholarship for a pretty solid academic record that was rather small. Other schools gave me much larger scholarships (that were also larger percentages of my tuition) but CSU still ended up being cheaper. The scholarship was much smaller than expected.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not a big partier and do not feel qualified to judge "the party scene."

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: CSU has an enormous amount of resources for poor, starving college students, with multiple dining halls (some of which provide consistently good food with decent variety). The meal plans are very useful, and the fact that you can choose how many you want a week and use some for snacks/beverages is extremely useful. RamCash is also an excellent tool, which I used often to get coffee. People can complain, but CSU students are really quite spoiled as far as food goes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: CSU has a wonderful community with a population of mostly very friendly, welcoming, and diverse people. It can be a bit claustrophobic and overwhelming but there are multiple locations on campus to hide away and get away to read/watch movies/whatever it is you may want to do. The campus is beautiful and near the shops and restaurants of Old Town. It's great.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live in the dorms but based off of what I have seen, heard, and read, there are many places off campus for students to live and the cost is easier to pay if you have multiple roommates. There are apartments, town homes, actual small houses and fully furnished houses that people can live in. And they are all very close to campus or have a shuttle bus for residents to and from school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: From what I have seen driving around the city, there are a ton of different restaurants I would like to visit because I have never heard of them nor have I ever been to them before. There are also restaurants from back home that are up in Fort Collins as well which I enjoy because it is food I recognize and have enjoyed in the past.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Parking services are very strict and if you do one wrong thing or accidentally park in the wrong place even if you have a permit, you get a citation and you have to pay a fine to the parking services office. No alcohol is allowed in the dorms whatsoever and the police crack down on drinking and driving for any person of any age. Attendance in classes is very crucial and teachers take attendance every day. We cannot have visitors in the dorms during finals weeks. If there is a noise complaint in the dorm hall the RA will take care of it and if it is a noise violation at a house party the cops are called and the party is shut down.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school does not offer any kind of loan or payment plan whatsoever. I did the FAFSA but was awarded very minimal amount because my parents just got divorced and my mom's income went up. I was forced to take out more government loans that I would have liked. Then my own bank would not offer me a loan to cover the rest of the tuition so I went to another bank that was not mine and was able to get a collegiate loan.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't usually go to parties that often because I am either studying or working in order to pay for tuition.
