“I’m proud to be part of CSU’s kind and supportive community. “Rams take care of Rams” is more than a motto – it’s a way of life seen every day on campus. CSU was my top choice, and my scholarship sealed the deal. Attending this top-tier institution without the burden of out-of-state tuition enabled me to fully embrace CSU’s offerings, including my favorite class on infectious diseases and leading the Ram Handler team!”
