Colorado State University is located in Fort Collins, Colorado, an award-winning city on the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Outside magazine lauded Fort Collins as a New American Dream Town in 2005 while Money magazine awarded Fort Collins the No. 1 rank as America's Best Place to Live in 2006.
Money magazine cited the city's blend of good jobs, low crime, quality schools, amount of open space, home prices, and community activities as the reasons for its top placement. "The natural setting, the vibrancy of downtown and the presence of Colorado State University helped put Fort Collins at the top of the magazine's list," noted Craig Matters, Money's executive editor.
CSU's location, with views of the foothills and 14,000-foot peaks, allows easy access to hiking, skiing, rafting and other outdoor sports. It's also about an hour away from metropolitan Denver and Denver International Airport.
