Welcome to Ram Country

The CSU community has been committed to improving lives and raising the human spirit for more than150 years. Colorado State University is Colorado’s land-grant institution focused on access to higher education, research, engagement, service and inclusion. The relationship that our students, staff, and faculty have with the Fort Collins community is what makes the city unique. The combination of outstanding academic programs, state-of-the-art facilities, and enthusiastic student involvement is why many call CSU home – more than 33,000 students and 7,000 employees in fact. Our students, staff, and faculty engage with community members through programs, events, and outreach.

From advances in COVID-19 research to animal cancer, our scientists are enhancing life-sustaining food production, bridging biomedical challenges with engineering solutions and creating innovative ways to advance the use of virtual reality. Our research touches lives across the globe through a broad range of disciplines. The CSU campus is recognized as one of the country’s most sustainable academic institutions and #1 in curriculum focus on sustainability. City and campus leaders frequently partner to nurture innovative new companies that help fuel the economy.

Colorado State allows visitors to immerse themselves in the spirit of community. From experiencing the history and greenery of the Oval to enjoying a performance at the University Center of the Arts, tuning in to a virtual symposium or having a conversation with one of our brilliant faculty members or students, walking through the beauty of the Annual Flower Trial Gardens, taking a trip down memory lane at the Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center, cheering on the Rams, planning or partaking in a meeting or conference with Conference & Event Services, shopping for Ram Gear at one of our CSU apparel locations, or touring the campus as a prospective student with the Office of Admissions, there are opportunities everywhere to celebrate RamPride. Colorado State University is proud to call Fort Collins home.

No visit is complete without exploring that Fort Collins has to offer. From endless outdoor activities to fantastic dining experiences, exhilarating live performances or beautiful visual arts, tasting local craft breweries and distilleries to experiencing the paranormal on haunted tours, finding that perfect souvenir or gift at one of our unique local stores to learning about the Fort Collins heritage, no matter what time of the year you visit there is something for everyone to enjoy. We invite you to experience Colorado State University!
