4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've seen enough of the housing to know that it's nice but I personally found A LOT cheaper in Greeley and my commute in is 38 minutes on a good day. So, I personally don't know much about it other than what friends have told me. Stick to the nicer places and don't do school offered off campus housing. Find your own.

Off-Campus Dining: So much better than on campus dining. Take this route if you can afford it because you'll be ready to puke the dorm food after some time passes.

Administration: I haven't gotten in trouble enough, but from experience, parking is VERY strictly enforced; even when half of the parking lot is taken by construction machines and parking sucks as it is.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't attend parties (for various reasons) but I have heard them. From what I've seen, most aren't TOO bad but plenty have been broken up by the police because the noise or fighting got out of hand. Not my cup of tea.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process takes forever, but you need to get in your FAFSA ASAP as soon as the option is open and you have your tax refund. I waited a bit too long and had to take out a MASSIVE loan in order to cover what the school didn't. Being out-of-state also majorly sucks, so be prepared for a price tag that could make you faint!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Only for the LSC options and old town. Everything else got old REALLY fast and some of it isn't made very well. Some nights the food is great and well seasoned but others....I've tasted better in high school. You'll get tired of the on-campus menu. Save money for off-campus eats. That's where the good stuff is at!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I transferred in and the first semester was always the craziest. After some of the elephant herd down the hall moved, it got A LOT quieter. Still expensive though.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school is somewhat helpful in moving out of the dorms, but they mostly just advertise the "college apartments," the ones that are known to be full of sophomores who don't know much better. I've not heard great things about the college apartments, as they are full of rowdy college kids. However, I've heard decent things about houses and such, but there isn't much help offered by the school in looking into those options. But, there is a helpful rental website by CSU that connects students with other students looking for places to live.

Off-Campus Dining: Theres a nice mix of higher quality dining such as bars and restaurants, along with some cheaper options as well. But, personally I like the fact that most of the true "fast food" places are somewhat far away, for example it took me a long time to even come across a McDonalds, and the only fast food/drive-thru around here that I'm aware of is Good Times and Taco Bell, and even then they're somewhat out of the way. I like having some diversity!

3 College Freshman

Administration: Rules are fairly strict in the books, but they're usually only enforced if it becomes a problem, such as complaints being made or its disruptive to other people. From what I know, people are given a few chances before any very serious action is taken against a student, such as being kicked out, etc.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm very lucky because I am using the military GI Bill from my dad as well as the Yellow Ribbon Program from the school for military members/dependents, so most of my costs are covered. My only advice for anyone applying for military aid or aid in general, is to get everything sorted very early. Processing takes a long time, so you won't be getting your aid until it's too late if you put off getting everything organized and settled early on, such as completing forms and such.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: At the start of the school year, dorms seemed like the greatest place to live. It was really nice for a while. but after a while, not having your own room and only being able to eat dining hall food gets old quick. It still is a decent place to live, especially for someones first time living away from home. You make friends almost instantly and feel like a community with your hall, and it is really convenient to be able to walk to your classes every day. The housing process wasn't too extremely difficult, but the cost is something that is somewhat of an issue--it's not sustainable for more than freshman year for most people. But overall, living in the dorms is a really great experience and helps you adjust to college and adult life.

Campus Housing: The Academic Dorm is where I have been accepted to live in. This dorm is newer than most on campus and seems very clean and appropriate for my needs. The college overall is expensive. That's why I'm applying for every scholarship I can find. The campus is very open and spacious. My best friend has been attending for the past year and loves it. Very friendly and safe campus.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I have not attended a party since coming to CSU for personal choices. I find that many individuals enjoy drinking and tend to get sloppy, which is not exactly something I would like to be involved in. Being that I do live in a dorm near Campus West, I can hear the surrounding fraternities and sororities having their parties. There isn't much news about CSU students getting chased down by police or anything of the sort, so I assume there is some positive impact and safety when concerning parties.

Scholarships: As an out-of-state student, it was difficult for me to obtain financial aid due to my family's marital situation. CSU did make it a hassle for my parents to complete the FAFSA, but after months of trying and completing it, I finally got some money to help out with my tuition. We learn from our mistakes and being that I am also a first generation student, my parents did not know much about FAFSA or universities and their restrictions. Now that we have gone through the process, everything seems to be running smoothly.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Being that I do work in the Corbett Dining Hall, I know how the food is prepared and what goes into each meal, so I know that Corbett has nutritious and delicious food. Of course, most dining halls do have their sweets and junk food, but it is up to the person as to what they decide to eat. Variety in the dining halls tends to be consistent; every day a few things will change but most of the main meals are the same for each specific day. I don't use my meal plan often because I get free food as a worker for Corbett but I know that they can be advantageous when one has to make a late night snack run to Durrell Express.

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus out of the convenience of being able to go to class and then straight to work afterwards. I live in Westfall Hall and it is a great experience living here. I did have a roommate conflict within my old dorm, Durward Hall, but I was able to resolve and change rooms within a week. The atmosphere here in Westfall is friendly and respectful. I enjoy having my own room and having quiet and kind hallmates who invite me to dinner every night. It is quite expensive living on campus, but for a freshman who is learning how to navigate in a new world known as a university, it is worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know too much about this, so I just assumed.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is plenty of great places to eat. Especially going to old town.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It can be often loud and it is very easy for people to visit each other in dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is great, but after many months, the same thing gets old.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's very expensive to stay in the dorms, the hallways aren't always cleaned, the bathrooms are sometimes cleaned in a quick way to where the showers are still dirty. However, the RA is very nice, the bathrooms are clean for the most part, and there is just enough room to fit my belongings I brought.

Administration: marijuana is legal in CO but not on campus, why does the laundry facilities smell then??

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm paying out of state tuition and it's really high, they aren't helping much, I'm not sure I can afford 4 years of this

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: i don't go to parties usually
