History

Colorado State University is a land-grant institution classified as a Carnegie Doctoral/Research University-Extensive. CSU was founded as Colorado Agricultural College in 1870, six years before the Colorado Territory gained statehood. It was one of 68 land-grant colleges established under the Morrill Act of 1862. The doors opened to a freshman class of 19 students in 1879. In 1935, the school became the Colorado State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, or Colorado A&M, and was renamed Colorado State University in 1957.


The university has operated under four different names:

  • 1879: Agricultural College of Colorado
  • 1935: Colorado College of Agricultural and Mechanic Arts (Colorado A&M)
  • 1944: Colorado Agricultural and Mechanical College (Colorado A&M)
  • 1957: Colorado State University

Early Years

The act to create the university was signed by Colorado Territory governor Edward M. McCook in 1870 arising from the Morrill Act. During the first years of its official existence, the university existed only on paper. A board of 12 trustees was formed to "purchase and manage property, erect buildings, establish basic rules for governing the institutions and employ buildings." But the near complete lack of funding by the territorial legislature for this mission severely hampered progress.

The first 30-acre (12 hectare) parcel of land for the campus was deeded in 1871 by Robert Dazell. In 1872, the Larimer County Land Improvement Company contributed a second 80 acre (320,000 m²) parcel. The first $1000 to erect buildings was finally allocated by the territorial legislature in 1874. The funds were not sufficient, however, and trustees were required to find a matching amount, which they eventually obtained from local citizens and businesses.

Among the institutions which donated matching funds was the local Grange, which was heavily involved in the early establishment of the university. As part of this effort, in the spring of 1874 Grange No. 7 held a picnic and planting event at the corner of College Avenue and West Laurel Street, and later plowed and seeded 20 acres (80,000 m²) of wheat on a nearby field. Within several months, the university's first building, a 16-foot (4.9 m)-by-24-foot red brick building nicknamed the "Claim Shanty" was finished, providing the first tangible presence of the institution in Fort Collins.

After Colorado achieved statehood in 1876, the territorial law establishing the college was required to be reauthorized. In 1877, the state legislature created the eight-member State Board of Agriculture to govern the school. Early in the 21st century, the governing board was renamed the Board of Governors of the Colorado State University System. The legislature also authorized a railroad right-of-way across the campus, and mill levy to raise money for construction of the campus' first main building, Old Main, which was completed in December 1878. Despite wall cracks and other structural problems during the first year, the building was opened in time for the welcoming of the first five students on September 1, 1879 by university president Elijah Evan Edwards.

During Colorado Agricultural College's first term in fall 1879, the school functioned more as a college-prep school than a college because of the lack of trained students. Consequently the first course offerings were arithmetic, English, U.S. history, natural philosophy, horticulture and farm economy. Students also labored on the college farm and attended daily chapel services. The spring term provided the first true college-level instruction. Despite his accomplishments, Edwards resigned in spring 1882 because of conflicts with the State Board of Agriculture, a young faculty member and with students.[2] The board's next appointee as president was Charles Ingersoll, a graduate and former faculty member at Michigan Agricultural College, who began his nine years of service at CAC with two full-time faculty members and 67 students, 24 of whom were women.


President Charles Ingersoll

Agricultural research was growing rapidly under Ingersoll. The Hatch Act of 1887 provided federal funds to establish and maintain experiment stations at land-grant colleges. Ainsworth Blount, CAC's first professor of practical agriculture and manager of the College Farm, had become known as a "one man experiment station," and the Hatch Act expanded his original station to five Colorado locations.[3] The curriculum expanded as well, introducing coursework in engineering, animal science, and liberal arts. New faculty members brought expertise in botany, horticulture, entomology, and irrigation engineering. CAC made its first attempts at animal science during 1883-84, when it hired veterinary surgeon George Faville. Faville conducted free weekly clinics for student instruction and treatment of local citizen's diseased or injured animals.[4] Veterinary science at the college languished for many years following Faville's departure in 1886. President Ingersoll believed the school neglected special programs for women. Despite the reluctance of the institution's governing board, CAC began opening the door to liberal arts in 1885, and by Ingersoll's last year at CAC the college had instituted a "Ladies Course" that offered junior and senior women classes in drawing, stenography and typewriting, foreign languages, landscape gardening and psychology.[5] Ingersoll’s belief in liberal yet practical education conflicted with the narrower focus of the State Board of Agriculture, and a final clash in April 1891 led to his resignation. In 1884, CAC would celebrate the commencement of its first three graduates.


Turn of the Century

Alston Ellis encountered limited funding and rapidly decision in 1895 to reduce the number of Experiment Stations. Female students grew in number from 44 in 1892 to 112 in 1896, and by fall 1895, the college’s new domestic-economy program was in place.[6] Football had a one-year stint at CAC in 1893, but Ellis was not a supporter of extracurricular activities and especially was hostile toward football. tyquesha lived here 80 years ago Barton Aylesworth became the school's fourth president in 1899, and the combination of his non-confrontational style with the presence of the vocal Colorado Cattle and Horse Growers Association on the governing board allowed ranching and farming interests to take the college's agricultural programs to new heights, greatly influencing the development of the entire school. Initially, the influence of ranching interests brought tremendous progress to CAC's agricultural programs. Enrollment quadrupled, studies in veterinary medicine were re-established, and CAC's Experiment Station benefited from lobbying that finally secured state appropriations. Eventually, conflicts with agricultural interests may have prompted Aylesworth to begin promoting a balanced curriculum at CAC, which he then fought hard to defend. The conflict also led him to tire and negotiate his resignation.[7] Look up Football in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... Look up Football in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Aylesworth was a big supporter of extracurricular activities. Football returned to the college in fall 1899, but baseball was the school's most popular sport. In 1903, the women’s basketball team won CAC's first unofficial athletic championship, culminating with a victory over the University of Colorado.[8] New clubs, fraternities, and sororities also emerged. By 1905, the school had a fledgling music department, which two years later became the Conservatory of Music. Look up Football in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

President Charles Lory

Taking office in 1909, CAC President Charles Lory oversaw the school's maturation and reconciled longstanding conflicts between supporters of a broad or specialized curriculum.[9] He embarked on a demanding schedule of personal appearances to make Colorado Agricultural College known as an institution that served the state's needs. Another of Lory’s notable achievements was putting the school on solid fiscal ground, meeting rising construction costs and freeing the institution of debt.[10]


The onset of World War I influenced all aspects of CAC, but nowhere was the impact more apparent than in the institution's programs for farmers. World War I created demands for American agricultural products, and CAC established new food production committees, information services and cultivation projects to help improve food production and conservation in Colorado. World War I also drew men from campus to Europe's battlefields. In June 1916, the National Defense Act created the Reserve Officers Training Corps. A few months later CAC applied to establish an ROTC unit in Fort Collins and resurrected a defunct National Guard unit on campus. During the early 1930s, CAC’s community-wide activities were greatly influenced by the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. The Extension Service organized relief programs for inhabitants of Eastern Colorado, of whom a survey found 20,000 to be urgently in need of food, and helped sustain cropland threatened by pests and drought.[11] President Lory sought to help Colorado farmers by pushing for major tax reforms to relieve them of high tax burdens, and played a significant role in a 1930s project that supplied irrigation water for agricultural development in Eastern Colorado. “The Great War ” redirects here. ... “The Great War ” redirects here. ... “The Great War ” redirects here. ...

Lory and the State Board had challenges of their own back on campus. In response to claims that the university was falling behind national standards, the board retired or demoted several senior professors and administrators deemed past the peak of their proficiency, and hired new doctorate-holding personnel while consolidating sections of lecture courses.[12] A student petition led to the governing-board to change the college's name to more accurately reflect the diversity of its academic programs, and the school became the Colorado State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, or Colorado A&M, in 1935. President Lory announced his retirement in 1938, after 31 years of leadership.


From World War II Into the Modern Era

Soon after Pearl Harbor, Colorado A&M began to look like a military post, with the college serving as many as 1,500 servicemen.[13] New President Roy Green tried to prepare for the sudden departure of students and arrival of servicemen by improving ROTC facilities, and introducing military-training programs. Although servicemen filed onto campus, student enrollment at Colorado A&M, 1,637 in fall 1942, dropped to 701 by fall 1943, and female students outnumbered their male counterparts for the first time.[14] When the war ceased in 1945, soldiers returning from Europe and the Pacific filled U.S. higher-education institutions. Nearly 1,040 students attended the college in fall 1946, and about 1,600 students enrolled by spring 1946. Close to 80 former Aggies died in World War II including football talent Lewis "Dude" Dent.[15] President Green did not live long enough to enjoy more stable days at Colorado A&M, his life taken by a heart attack in 1948.

Colorado A&M Becomes a University Under Bill Morgan

Colorado A&M shed its image as a narrow technical college and became a university in appearance and title during the 1950s under president Bill Morgan. Providing adequate student housing for an increasing number of youth approaching college age and improving cramped instructional facilities were among the first tests of Morgan’s leadership. He responded, and five new residence halls were completed between 1953-1957.[16] Colorado A&M took advantage of a new mill levy won through aggressive lobbying to construct several new academic facilities, among them Morgan Library, completed in 1964.


Academic offerings grew to include advanced degrees. The State Board of Agriculture approved a doctorate degree in civil engineering in 1951, and three years later allowed other qualified departments to offer doctorates. Morgan believed students earning this advanced degree should hold it from a university, and so began a campaign to change the name of Colorado A&M. In 1957, the Colorado General Assembly approved the new name of Colorado State University.[17] The Colorado General Assembly is the state legislature of the U.S. state of Colorado. ...


The 1960's: Student Activism

Colorado State became a scene of intense student activism during the 1960s and early 1970s. The reduction of strict campus regulations for women was among the early targets of student activists, coming to the forefront in 1964 when a 21-year-old female student moved into unapproved off-campus housing to accommodate her late hours as editor of the student newspaper.[18] Continual student protests eventually led to the loosening of curfews for women and the opportunity for junior and senior coeds to live off campus. Activism, in a general sense, can be described as intentional action or inaction to bring about social or political change. ...


The civil-rights movement on campus also picked up momentum and visibility. In spring 1969, shortly before Morgan's retirement, Mexican-American and African-American student organizations presented a list of demands to university officials primarily urging increased recruitment of minority students and employees. The demonstrators' occupation of the Administration Building continued to the front lawn of Morgan's home. Students and university representatives took their concerns to state officials, but Colorado legislators rejected a subsequent university request for funds to support minority recruitment.[19]Civil rights tension resurfaced in January 1970 during a peaceful student demonstration before a Colorado State-Brigham Young University basketball game in protest of alleged racist practices of the Mormon Church. The demonstration became violent and clashes with riot police ensued.


Anti-military protest took place in dramatic form at Colorado State from 1968-70. On March 5, 1968, several hundred students and faculty with anti-war sentiments marched to Fort Collins' downtown War Memorial and wiped blood on a placard tied to the memorial. Hecklers and blockaders created such a disturbance that police had to disperse the non-marchers. In May, 1970, as campus peace activists held the second day of a student strike in the gymnasium in response to the U.S. invasion of Cambodia and the student deaths at Kent State University, one or more arsonists set Old Main ablaze, destroying the 92-year-old cornerstone of Colorado State.[20] For the events of May 4, 1970, see Kent State shootings Kent State University (also known as Kent, Kent State or KSU) is one of America’s largest university systems, the third largest university in Ohio after Ohio State University (57,748) and the University of Cincinnati (35,364), and...


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.

Future Directions

In his welcoming address for the fall 2007 semester, current CSU President Larry Penley called for CSU to set the standard for the 21st century public land-grant research university.[21] He has identified as the heart of this ideal the contribution to the prosperity and quality of life of the local and international community, in part through fostering relationships and collaborations with federal research partners, the business community and key industries.[22] A part of this approach is Colorado State’s new Supercluster research model, designed to utilize interdisciplinary, issue-based research on pressing global issues in which the university has particular expertise and connect research results to the marketplace. Initial Superclusters in infectious disease and in cancer research have been launched, and an upcoming clean energy Supercluster dovetails with an overall emphasis on campus sustainability. A wind farm is being built to power the main campus, and new residence halls have been constructed according to national green building standards.[23] A sustainability advisory committee has been charged to coordinate green activities at Colorado State.[24] A university is an institution of higher education and of research, which grants academic degrees. ...

While maintaining historic ties to local agriculture, administration officials have also emphasized the desire to better connect with the local community.[25] Currently, CSU is party to UniverCity, a multi-organization initiative that links the school with city government, community and business associations to expand and synchronize working relationships.[26] Another goal set by the university is to improve undergraduate education. Essential tasks, Penley says, are access and graduation rates, particularly for qualified low-income and minority students, and an education international in scope suited to a global economy.[27] Facilities improvements underway include a new biocontainment research lab, a campus center for the arts, and a new computer science building. With state financial support declining, CSU has also put a focus on alternate funding models based on market-based financial strategies and increased forms of private support. Marketing and public relations have also become part of university strategy to attract quality students and increase public awareness of Colorado State. Computer science, or computing science, is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems. ...


Campus

Colorado State University is located in Fort Collins, Colorado, a mid-size city of approximately 142,000 residents at the base of the Rocky Mountains. The university’s 579-acre (2.34 km²) main campus is located in central Fort Collins. CSU is also home to a 1,705-acre Foothills Campus, a 101-acre (0.41 km²) veterinary teaching hospital, a 1,432-acre (5.80 km²) agricultural campus, and the 1,177-acre (4.76 km²) Pingree Park mountain campus. CSU utilizes 3,994 acres (16.16 km²) for research centers and forestry service outside of Larimer County.[28]


Main Campus

At the heart of the CSU campus lies the Oval, an expansive green area 2,065 feet (629 m) around, lined with 65 American Elm trees.[29] Once the center of campus, the Oval is still a center of activity and a major landmark at CSU. The administration building, constructed in 1924, faces the Oval from the south end, and several academic building occupy its perimeter. The music building, once the university library, and Ammons Hall, formerly the women’s recreational center and current home to Career Services, are among the structures around the Oval. Guggenheim Hall, which stands at the north end of the Oval, was constructed in 1910 as a gift from U.S. Senator Simon F. Guggenheim to promote the study of home economics,[30] and was recently renovated according to green building standards. Binomial name Ulmus americana L.

Another campus focal point is the main plaza, around which can be found several academic buildings, Lory Student Center, and Morgan Library. The Lory Student Center, named for former CSU president Charles Lory, houses Student Media, numerous organization offices, Student Government, and spaces to eat, drink and study. The Morgan Library was originally constructed in 1965 and named for former CSU president William E. Morgan. This facility went through an extensive improvement project, completed in 1998 following the flood, which included an addition to the main building and a renovation of the existing structure. Holdings currently include more than 2 million books, bound journals, and government documents.[31] [1]#redirect Book ...


Colorado State University's oldest existing building is Spruce Hall, constructed in 1881.[32] Originally a dormitory that played a vital role in the early growth of the school's student enrollment, Spruce now houses the Division of Continuing Education and the Office of Admissions. The Molecular and Radiological Biosciences building and the Natural and Environmental Sciences building are two of CSU’s newest academic buildings, constructed in 1989 and 1994, respectively.


Veterinary Hospital

The James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital complex was constructed in 1979 and consists of four main buildings, the Main Hospital, the Horse and Food Animal Hospital, the Large Animal Isolation Facility, and the Raptor Facility. Located south of the main campus in Fort Collins, the Main Hospital is a full service hospital divided into small and large animal clinics that annually serve 19,000 small animals and 2,700 large animals from around the world.[33] Look up raptor in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Pingree Park

In addition to university property in Fort Collins, large tracts of land for research exist in CSU's name throughout the state of Colorado. Among these is the Pingree Park campus situated in the Mummy Range 53 miles (85 km) northwest of town. It was initially selected by former CSU president Charles A. Lory and began classes for Civil Engineering and Forestry students in 1913 and 1915, respectively. In the summertime, Pingree Park hosts educational programs for students in the College of Natural Resources, and is also used as a conference space for numerous corporations, government and private organizations, and universities.

Organization

Administration

Colorado State University is a public land-grant institution and Carnegie Doctoral/Research University Extensive. The Board of Governors presides over the Colorado State University System, which is composed of Colorado State University and Colorado State University-Pueblo. The Board consists of nine voting members appointed by the Governor of Colorado and confirmed by the Colorado State Senate, and four elected non-voting members.[34] Voting members are community leaders from many fields, including agriculture, business, and public service.[35] A student and faculty representative from each university act as non-voting Board members. The president of Colorado State University, currently Larry Penley, is also chancellor of the CSU System. The current Chairman of the Board is Douglas L. Jones.


Funding and Financial Resources

According to statistics from the 2006 fiscal year, CSU operates an endowment of $152,225,000. CSU’s endowment is the lowest of its 13-member group of peer institutions, though its endowment growth rate of 13% from FY 2005 to FY 2006 was comparable.[36] Drops in higher education funding in Colorado have been among the highest in the nation, with budget cuts driving per-student funding down 38% over the last 5 years.[37] While state support has been declining, tuition has been rising. Resident undergraduate tuition increased 77% between 1998-99 and 2007-08, though even with these increases CSU had the lowest tuition among peer institutions for 2006-07 academic year.[38] Colorado State president Larry Penley has announced as one of his chief priorities to seek additional sources of funding and bring Colorado State’s resources to the level of its peers.[39]

The student government is the Associated Students of Colorado State University. CSU's daily newspaper is the Rocky Mountain Collegian. CSU also has a student-run campus television station and a student radio station, KCSU FM.

A radio station is an audio (sound) broadcasting service, traditionally broadcast through the air as radio waves (a form of electromagnetic radiation) from a transmitter to an antenna and a thus to a receiving device. ...


Student Media

The Rocky Mountain Collegian is CSU’s student-run daily newspaper, where students have complete control over editorial decisions. The paper was founded in 1891, and was a weekly publication by the 1930s. During the 1940s and 1950s, the paper earned disrepute in the local community for its unpopular support of women’s rights and anti-racism stance.[113] By the 1970s, the Collegian was consistently publishing daily. Editorial quality and financial support have varied over the years, at times rising among elite college newspapers and at others struggling to publish. During the 1990s, the paper was twice selected as one of the top 12 daily student papers in the country.[114]


KCSU is Colorado State’s student run station, with a format focusing on alternative and college rock music, including indie rock, punk, hip-hop and electronic music. News, sports and weather updates along with talk programs and specialty shows round out the programming schedule. Broadcasting at 10,000 watts, KCSU is among the larger college stations in the country, reaching approximately 250,000 listeners.[115] KCSU first began broadcasting in 1964 as a station owned, operated and financed by students. Following a long period as a professional station, KCSU again became student run in 1995, at which time the current format was adopted. As with the Collegian and CTV, KCSU was hit hard by the 1997 flood, and for a time was forced to broadcast from remote locations. Now back in its original Lory Student Center location, KCSU has benefited from revamped production facilities and updated equipment. Indie rock is a subgenre of rock music often used to refer to bands that are on small independent record labels or that arent on labels at all. ... Watts may refer to: Watt, the SI derived unit of power Watts and Co. ...


CTV is CSU’s student-run television station, and is a recent winner of fourteen Rocky Mountain Collegiate Media Association awards and a Student Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Heartland Chapter.[116] Content includes news, sports, and music videos. CTV was founded in 1989,[117] and currently broadcasts weeknights on the university cable station from 8pm to midnight.


Student-run magazine College Avenue was founded in 2005 with the goal, as put forth by its founding editors, of giving students a new forum to address controversial issues affecting the campus community from their own vantage point.[118] Since its first issue in fall 2005, the magazine has been released quarterly, the most recent issue released in spring 2008.


Greek Life

Greek life at Colorado State began in the fall of 1915. Currently 5% of undergraduates join one of CSUs 19 fraternities and 14 sororities.[119] The CSU Inter-Fraternity Council acts as the governing body for the 19 fraternities, each with a delegate representative. Similarly, the CSU Panhellenic Council governs the sororities. CSU Greek organizations are involved in a number of philanthropic activities around campus, among them CSUnity, Cans around the Oval, Habitat for Humanity and RamRide. The governing bodies recently raised $25,000 towards the sponsorship of a Habitat for Humanity home.[120] While the term fraternity can be used to describe any number of social organizations, including the Lions Club and the Shriners, fraternities and sororities are most commonly known as social organizations of higher education students in the United States and Canada but there are fraternities in the whole world (for...

Residence halls

12 residence halls provide on campus living for about 5,100 students. 718 apartments for students with families and 190 apartments for older or graduate students are other living options.[121] CSU offers theme floors for people with shared interests. The halls also have a number of Living-Learning communities that directly link the on-campus living environment with a specific academic focus in Honors, engineering, natural sciences, health and wellness, equine sciences, leadership development, or pre-veterinary medicine. The Key Academic Community creates an academically focused residential community for freshmen who share a desire for academic achievement, active involvement in classes, community service, campus activities, and appreciation of diversity. Residents share classes and take advantage of yearlong service opportunities with a close knit group of 19 other students.


CSU Honors Program participants have the opportunity to live in the Honors Living Community. The new Academic Village, which opened in fall 2007, houses Living Learning Communities for 180 Honors and 240 Engineering students.[122] Students in the College of Natural Sciences can choose to live in the Ingersoll Residential College.


Student Demographics

In fall 2007, CSU opened its doors to 24,983 students, among them 20,765 undergraduates, 2,332 master’s students, 1,347 doctoral students, and 539 professional students in the College of Biomedical and Veterinary Medicine.[123] 80% of undergraduates are Colorado residents, and within the student population 50 states and 79 countries are represented. 52% of undergraduates are women, 13.2% of undergraduates are ethnic minorities (excluding international students), and 3% of undergraduates are 30 and over.[124] Of minority students, 48% are Hispanic, 24% Asian American, 16% African American, and 12% Native American.[125] Over the past ten years, minority enrollment has increased 35%, from 2,361 to 3,178, an increase from 10.9% to 13.2% of the student population.[126] Though progress has been made, increasing minority enrollment at CSU has been a challenge for school administrators, one made yet more difficult by high dropout rates in many Colorado high schools with concentrated minority populations.[127] Official language(s) English Demonym Coloradan Capital Denver Largest city Denver Largest metro area Denver-Aurora Metro Area Area  Ranked 8th in the US  - Total 104,185 sq mi (269,837 km²)  - Width 280 miles (451 km)  - Length 380 miles (612 km)  - % water 0. ...
