| The Computer Science department is a sham. There are a few very good professors and some okay, but course organization is abysmal. |
Construction? Year round. $500 million in construction projects over the next decade. A football stadium on campus has been vehemently opposed by the community, yet CSU and it's decision makers -- Tony Frank -- decided to go ahead with it anyway.
Safety is another issue. The school closes only when someone is hurt. They are REACTIVE, not proactive about safety. They are useless, and some day they will lead to someone being killed. Falling branches? We might close the campus. Oh... a girl was hit by a falling branch? By the grace of something, this girl didn't die. Tony Frank repeatedly ignores poor weather and the fact that CSU has a large population of commuter students.
Parking -- do not waste time with parking. $200 for a yearly parking pass. Good luck actually finding parking. I have a ruined knee, so I tend to park as close as possible. If I cannot find parking, I use pay-to-park. I shell out a few bucks to park for a couple hours. Overstay your paid time by 5 minutes? How about a $20 ticket. Parking services is a bunch of ruthless, rude, sociopathic bastards who will not listen to complaints and threaten to double the fine if you continue to argue about it.
Have any complaints? Stick them into our shredder and we will get to them as soon as possible. You are ignored. You pay $15,000 a year or more to this institution, and you are brushed aside if you have any concerns about body and limb, mental health, or policy concerns. Avoid this school.

| My experience was an enlightenment that brought confidence in life and what I'll be doing after I graduate. The students are friendly but dislike being surveyed or questioned repeadetly about religion. There is always construction going on, and that makes things harder to access. The staff is really nice as a lot of them are young and still persuing more education for their fields of study. There are a lot of activities to do in Fort Collins and with extracullicular activities with CSU or groups working through CSU. The campus ministries are real and genuine. Chi Alpha (The Outpost) is a campus ministry that is a ministry of small groups. They make the campus and city a better place to be in. THe people are real, and comfortable to be around. The campus allows for different religous organizations to use the campus for there beliefs, as in a church on campus. The campus also has many fraternities and sororities. They are just like any other fraternity or sorority. The sports at CSU are making a Bold New statement. The men's basketball team is really stepping up there game, making a prominent spot in the NCAA March Madness tournament. The volleyball team does fantastic regularly. And the other sporting teams are getting better. The atmosphere at all the games is pure Ram Pride. It's loud, it gets nasty, but it's all friendly competition. Overall CSU is a wonderful place to choose in excelling in academics and life. |

| Colorado State University is very disorganized. I had to actually go and correct the heath center about my vaccination records even though I faxed them my records 3 times! When I got there to talk to them about it, they couldn't even find a single one of them! I also changed my major and submitted the form in October. It is now January and they just now changed my major! There is a church group that is consistently on campus and seems to enjoy arguing with some of the students over their beliefs. The chemistry department does not seem to care about their students or if their students succeed. As a result, they lost a lot of chemistry majors this past semester. Some of the staff appears to be very knowledgable about their subjects, while others seem to have no clue about what they are teaching. The campus is really pretty. The party scene at the college exists, but be prepared for parties to get broken up quickly. The dorms are pretty nice to live in, but they can sometimes get really noisy. |
