In addition to Colorado State University in Fort Collins and in Pueblo, CSU has just broken ground on another campus not on the Front Range. 

According to Colorado State, ground has been broken for CSU’s Western Colorado Campus in Orchard Mesa, on the southern edge of Grand Junction.

The investment in CSU’s Western Colorado Campus will provide a new facility for research, extension and engagement for the local community. The campus will provide administrative oversight and intellectual leadership for CSU’s Agricultural Experiment Stations (AES) located in Western Colorado.  - colostate.edu
