Believe it or not, according to Forbes, those two major universities are not the best college to attend in Colorado. In fact, the University of Colorado and CSU didn't make the top 100 in Forbes annual list of Forbes America's Top Colleges List.


CSU and UofCO

The University of Colorado was ranked the 103rd-best college in the country. This is what Forbes had to say about the college.

The University of Colorado, Boulder is a dynamic research hub that encourages students to engage with the world around them to enhance their education.

Colorado State was not in the top 100. Ram alumni will be disappointed to hear that CSU was ranked the 214th best college. Here is what Forbes had to say about the Fort Collins school.

Colorado State University in Fort Collins is a public research university that strives to teach students the importance of community, responsibility and inclusion. The main campus spans about 580 acres in close proximity to downtown Fort Collins and the Rocky Mountains.



Colorado College in Colorado Springs was the only college in Colorado that was ranked within the top 100. Colorado College was ranked #96.

Forbes said this.

Colorado College is a liberal arts school for students who like to dive deep into their academics, take part in experiential learning and adventure in their free time.


Known for its distinctive “Block Plan,” students take a different class every three and a half weeks, followed by a four day break. Students can also take blocks abroad. There are over 40 majors to choose from, as well as a 3-2 engineering program.

Additionally, Colorado College was rated the 27th best liberal arts college by U.S. News, and was given an A rating on Niche.
