CSU at 150

Celebrating Colorado State University's 150th birthday

Colorado State University celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. From a single brick building to today’s state-of-the-art Fort Collins campus, CSU continues educating, innovating and engaging students in Colorado and around the world. From a water monitor to a football trophy to protest letters, artifacts reveal CSU’s groundbreaking work in environmental research, storied sports history and students’ efforts to ensure equal opportunity for all. A century and a half along, CSU still fulfills its mission from 1870—to extend access to education while generating new knowledge that strengthens communities and transforms lives.
