My Experience at CSU-Pueblo was below average at best. The school is turning into a degree mill and is too focused on catering to the Hispanic community. Most of the students are from Pueblo, meaning that they tend to only hang with their old high school buddies. Almost none of my friends from high school went to CSU-P, so I had a very hard time making new friends. If you're from out of town, you too will have a very hard time making new friends, unless you are on one of the school's athletic teams.

I considered most of my peers to be really immature. I'm not sure how things work at other schools, but I found it really strange that we were having student government elections on a college campus. Some of the other activities and clubs that were available would appeal more to high school students than college students.

Pueblo is NOT a college town, and won't become one anytime soon. The school is trying to create a decent vibe within the community, but in my opinion, they are failing. The lack of commercial development within walking/biking distance of the campus is a HUGE negative.

My academic experience was pretty average. I learned a lot in some of my freshman and sophomore-level classes, but most of my upper-division classes were really tedious and pointless. I did learn a lot in some of my applied classes though. Most of my professors were either young or had little or no real-word experience, which made it really hard to take them seriously.
