Pristine views of the Rocky Mountain foothills, ample green space, historical architecture, and state-of-the-art facilities combine to make CSU’s campus a place you won’t want to leave. Our students spend much of their time outdoors studying, biking, or simply walking through the beauty.
Think we’re focused on appearances alone? Don’t be fooled. There’s so much more to this place. Our campus is surrounded by unique geography and a rich cultural history, giving students access to out-of-classroom experiences hard to find elsewhere.
Ready to have your breath taken away? Here are our top 5 spots on campus.
#1: The Oval
Play frisbee, read a book, or just catch some rays at one of the oldest and most well-known spots on campus. The Oval is home to historic buildings and rows of American Elms dating back to our founding in 1870.
#2: The Rec Center
With three climbing walls, 24,000 square feet of cardio and fitness equipment, an indoor track, and an aquatic center featuring a lazy river, it’s no wonder that students can’t get enough of this place.
#3: The Trial Gardens
Each year CSU horticulture students transform this campus spot into one of the most beautiful gardens in the state. Walk or ride through the trial gardens from spring to fall and you’ll find an ever-evolving beauty.
#4: The Monfort Quad
A large, sunny spot in the middle of campus, the Monfort Quad is the perfect place to rest and rejuvenate between classes. Hang out with your furry and non-furry friends alike, or simply soak up the sun.
