Hello, friends! My name is Susan Brown and I am a junior at CSU. I am from Hartford, Wisconsin, so we share the AMAZING Midwest as a home region! At CSU I am an Admissions Ambassador Student Coordinator, so I work with two peers to supervise the entire student ambassador (tour guide) team. Around campus, I am an officer for the CSU Outdoor Club and for the Campus Feminist Alliance and I am involved in the Honors Student Association. I love Fort Collins and my decision to come to CSU from the Midwest!

Okay, so basically CSU is in a PRIME location. First of all, you’re only an hour from Denver, which makes getting back home easy—there are even shuttles that take you straight from your doorstep to the airport check-in door. Secondly, Old Town Fort Collins is the BEST. It’s got a small-town feel but with big-town opportunities. It has some great places to grab a bite to eat (STUFT burger bar and LuLu’s Asian Bistro are my faves), grab the best ice cream in town (Walrus Ice Cream, if you’re in town), or hang out!
