I took pity on this University because it was listed in the non-existent popular destinations and I knew Zeal would have lots of info: over 70 page profiles, as it turned out.
I hope one of you can make the different paragraphs look the same: that first one would be better in the same typeface as the second and with shorter lines.

Golly, that response was rick! I'll study the coding. Thanks.

This article should be distinguished from Colorado State University-Pueblo. Maybe a brief disambiguation message at the top of the article?
Call me naive, but shouldn't there be some sort of mention about the academics in an article about an university?
- One could probably just follow the link provided to the official CSU page. --Danheretic 13:15, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
- I'd suggest perhaps something along the lines of what we did for University of Arizona? There are lots of links to things hosted in static locations on the university server (e.g. colleges and departments). Overall, this article is actually quite nice - just a little more filling-out info makes for a "complete" article. --ABQCat 03:41, 16 February 2006 (UTC)
This article has too many words that make it read like an advertisement. So I have placed an advertisement tag on it. If you have any questions, contact me. I may or may not start work on fixing the article in the next few days (some of it will be chopped because I know nothing about CSU but it cannot sit there reading like an advertisement) Guroadrunner 02:53, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
- These are the problem edits. What upsets me even more is that they cut out the introductory paragraph. I am a student at CSU, but this degree of self-praise is in very bad taste. I left a message on their talk page.--R. M. 345 13:56, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
- I've gone through and removed a lot of advertising - just straight cut it out. Unfortunately, that means many pieces of the article were thrown out, but the article now is more in line with the NPOV and no-advertising rules. -- Guroadrunner 13:35, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Why doesn't someone add that it is a top 100 University ranked by U.S.News and World Report and that it's MBA program was ranked the best administered program in the nation? Heck, I didn't even go there and I know that (just like Fort Collins).
Related to this, I'm curious about people's thoughts on the inclusion of Distance/Online Learning. If it remains, it needs serious edits as the information not only reads "advertise-y" but is inaccurate. CSU Global Campus is not the online/distance arm of the university but is actually a completely separate university within the CSU System (like a CSU-Pueblo) so I question its inclusion and link in this section (if the section remains). CSU has a Division of Continuing Education that offers CSU programs online and at a distance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 04:42, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
edits to come
Hello editors, I am a new contributor to Wikipedia, and wanted to let you know ahead of time that I've been doing some research for the CSU page and will be posting some additions over the next few days to areas in which it lacks information. I'll do my best to adhere to the conventions and spirit of Wikipedia, questions or comments on postings are naturally welcome.Spilly816 (talk) 01:12, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
I noticed this page doesn't mention any of the recent scandals that have gone on within CSU. I'm thinking of former President Larry Penley and Police Chief Yarborough. Maybe someone familiar with these events could mention them in the page. K Revival (talk) 20:11, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

====1980s and 90s====
Colorado State entered the 1980s with a new Veterinary Teaching Hospital and a rating of Class I research university by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Education. The first half of the 1990s brought a renewed emphasis on undergraduate teaching and outreach arms of the university. To support the balance, CSU President Albert Yates appointed a Commission on the Undergraduate Experience, established the Programs of Research and Scholarly Excellence, and implemented a post-tenure review policy for faculty. Under Yates, the university also made significant efforts to improve administrative efficiency and reexamined its annual strategic planning.On the evening of July 28, 1997, a flash flood ripped through Fort Collins and the Colorado State University campus. Known as the "Spring Creek Flood of '97", the flood resulted from a series of heavy thunderstorms over a two-day period in west Fort Collins. Five people drowned south of campus, and estimated damages citywide were in excess of $200 million. Colorado State University campus suffered millions of dollars in damages to buildings and property, with Morgan Library and the Lory Student Center among the hardest hit. Fortunately, no people on campus suffered serious injuries or death.
