Colorado State University is a land-grant institution and a
Carnegie Research University R1: Doctoral University (Very High

College in 1870, six years before the Colorado Territory gained
statehood. It was one of 68 land-grant colleges established under
the Morrill Act of 1862. The doors opened to a freshman class of
20 students in 1879. In 1935, the school became the Colorado State
College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, or Colorado A & M, and
was renamed Colorado State University in 1957.
