Mesa State is the fastest growing four-year college in Colorado and yet maintains a small class atmosphere while holding the cost of tuition down. Students value the personal education experience that cannot be found at larger colleges and universities. Founded in 1925, Mesa State College is a comprehensive, liberal arts college offering programs at the master, baccalaureate, associate degree, and certificate levels. Mesa offers a variety of educational choices. Professors are here because they love to teach. They know their students and establish relationships that last long after students enter the workforce or have gone on to earn graduate degrees. Our students have very diverse backgrounds and come from over 40 states and several foreign countries. Located in the beautiful high-desert country of Western Colorado, the surrounding area provides unmatched year-round outdoor recreational opportunities from mountain biking to whitewater rafting to alpine skiing and much more. With an area population exceeding 116,000, you’ll have the amenities of a big city without the hassles of heavy traffic, crime, or crowded airports. The campus is surrounded with quiet residential neighborhoods, lively restaurants, coffee shops, and retail stores. New capital construction projects on campus include a soccer field, two new parking structures, expanded student recreation center, new classroom buildings and dorms. Mesa State has a wide range of financial aid packages available to students including academic and leadership scholarships, grants, student loans, and work-study awards. Scholarships are also available in a number of sports and fine arts. Mesa State is a member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and has regularly achieved national ranking in several NCAA Division II sports.
