For the most part, Fort Collins and Northern Colorado as a whole absolutely love Colorado State University.

Whether it’s cheering on the Rams on game day or heading to the stadium to watch some movies, it’s an awesome place that students and alumni have a lot of pride for.

Some people might say that Fort Collins is not a good college town. Many of us completely disagree, even if we’re not sure how students can afford it.

However, CSU just got an absolutely huge honor.

CSU Ranked as One of the Best Large Employers in the Country


Colorado State has been rated as a great place to work in the past, and the accolades keep on rolling in on that front.
Every year, Forbes partners with Statista to make a list of the best small, mid-sized, and large employers in the entire country. 

They consider a large organization to be one that has over 5,000 employees, and they rank the top 600.

In the list, Colorado State was able to get on the list at 211st, which made it the highest educational institution to make it in Colorado. 

It beat out the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, which was 236th. 

What Other Honors Has CSU Received?

CSU also received another honor from Forbes a while back, which was being ranked as the fifth best employer in Colorado as a whole.

CSU also got ranked as the 79th best public university in the country, and made it onto The Princeton Review’s list of best colleges.
