Positive News Bolsters City’s Economic Effort


Also released Tuesday, the Princeton Review cited Colorado State University in its list of “Best Value Colleges” for 2006, which focuses on undergraduate education. The list is based on academic ratings, financial aid availability and costs of tuition and fees in 2003. CSU was among 81 colleges and universities that made the list. The two news items make good companions because CSU plays such an integral role in Fort Collins’ economy both directly and indirectly. Accessible education through affordable tuition draws and retains students. Those same students, as well as top-notch faculty, drive the university’s ability to promote innovation and entrepreneurship by producing viable and marketable research.
