CSU applications surge for fall freshman class

FORT COLLINS, Colorado ” Applications from Colorado residents who want to attend Colorado State University next fall are up 10 percent from this time last year.

CSU said Monday it has received about 750 more applications from residents and 150 more from nonresidents than it had last year.

Interim President Tony Frank says the surge in applications comes amid a decrease in applications at many other schools.

Chuck DeWayne, director of curriculum at Poudre School District in Fort Collins, says he sees more parents urging their kids to apply to CSU because it’s cheaper than going out of state.

In mid-February, freshman applications to the University of Colorado were down almost 15 percent from last year.
