Established in 1933 as a three-room junior college with 63 students,
Colorado State University-Pueblo now boasts more than 4,200 students. We officially became a four-year university in 1975 and joined with Fort Lewis College and CSU in 1984 to form the Colorado State University System governed by the State Board of Agriculture. Our name changed from the University of Southern Colorado to Colorado State University-Pueblo in 2003. The CSU System now governs three schools: CSU in Fort Collins, CSU-Pueblo, and CSU-Global.
