This review is for the Colorado State UniversityQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
This review is for the Colorado State University (CSU) Global Campus. I have been 100% happy with all but one class, but the one class led to a grade appeal that caused me to find out how horrible the administrative support is at this school.

Go here if you want, but be aware that they feel that professors owe you only numerical grades (a job teaching assistants do at most real schools) and not actual feedback, help, or instruction. If you get an unexplained poor grade and appeal it, all they will do is point to the grading rubric and say "here's where the points were deducted." They will not show you what in your paper was wrong or missing or ask the professor to do so.

If you are satisfied with a numerical grade without feedback and with the knowledge that you will never get an explanation if you don't understand a grade, attend classes through CSU's Global Campus. Professors at this institution are basically glorified TAs. They give you a number and sometimes respond to discussions. The rest of the course is pre-designed for them and all they have to do is fill in some blanks. The course designers also often spell simple words like "exercise" wrong in assignment guidelines, and I have found several answers to tests that were incorrect in the system.You'd learn as much from "attending" your average online diploma mill and purchasing a few used textbooks from Amazon.

The most surprising thingAverageNatural Resources
The most surprising thing about CSU and Fort Collins is how nice and down to earth every one seems to be. The education is great and extra curricular activities are solid. All the random negative posts on here are ridiculous. Go Rams

CAU is awesome ISuper BrilliantSocial Work
CAU is awesome I graduated from here last semester with a BWS and with honors =) I love this school. I am also going to grad school here and I am not a white kid and I still love it. I think CSU is making major efforts to become more diverse.
