Tracing CSU’s agricultural roots: Video tour

Dixie Crowe

Over the last 145 years, the Colorado State University campus has changed as new land was acquired, new majors were added, and new buildings were built to house today’s diverse research driven campus. One thing that spans the continuum is the university’s focus on agriculture with soil and crop sciences and animal husbandry, known today as animal sciences.


Take a short tour of the parts of the CSU campus that are part of our agricultural past and present from the time of Colorado Agricultural College under the original land grant, through when the university’s name changed to Colorado A&M, and now as CSU. The tour includes on-campus locations as well as two parts of animal sciences off-campus facilities, the equine center and the agricultural research development and education center.
