Best of CSU 2016
College Avenue, Volume 12: Issue 2: This issue of College Avenue Magazine presents the results of the 2016 Best of CSU, as voted by the Colorado State student body.
For anyone that lives in Fort Collins, whether it be the four years they attend college here or the 30 they spend here after graduating, this place becomes home. For me, Fort Collins is quite literally my home. Despite being born out of state, I have lived here for the better part of 20 years, and when it came time to for me to start college, Colorado State was the obvious choice.
To me, there’s no better place in the world than the 47 square miles that the Choice City covers. We’ve got everything. When it comes to bars, restaurants, breweries, music venues and so much more, there’s no better town to find anything and everything you love.
Every establishment has its own unique and diverse feeling, but if there’s one common theme among them, it’s that they treat you as one of their own. For students entering the overwhelming world of college life, there’s no better feeling than walking into a restaurant or bar for the first time and being treated as if you’re part of the family.
In the 27 years Student Media has published the “Best of CSU” edition, it has always been our goal to highlight the businesses and establishments that you, the reader, believe are the cream of the crop in our great city. We each have our favorite places to go, but by allowing the voice of our community to be heard, I believe we are truly able to present the best of the best to you.
There’s not many places in the world like the one you’re in right now, so go out and explore the best things this city has to offer. Whether you’re looking for the perfect place to take a first date, or maybe the best place to drink after that first date goes horribly bad, the 2016 Best of CSU edition is your guide to what we love.
