Colorado Online Masters

Colorado, constituent state of the United States of America. It is classified as one of the Mountain states, although only about half of its area lies in the Rocky Mountains. It borders Wyoming and Nebraska to the north, Nebraska, and Kansas to the east, Oklahoma, and New Mexico to the south, and Utah to the west. Colorado was admitted to the union on August 1, 1876, as the 38th state. The capital is Denver.

Colorado’s history is written in the names of its cities, towns, mountain ranges, and passes. Native American, French, and Spanish names alternate with those of frontier Americans, and many ghost towns are reminders of the thousands of prospectors and homesteaders who streamed into the territory in the mid-19th century to pursue dreams of gold, silver, and grain bonanzas. Vast cattle ranges and agricultural acreage fed by huge irrigation projects are characteristic of present-day Colorado, as are the diversified industries and the educational and research facilities in the state’s urban centers. Area 104,094 square miles (269,603 square km). Population (2020) 5,782,171.

Education in Colorado

Colorado ranks among the top states in terms of the number of college and university graduates. The people of the Colorado Territory created the University of Colorado in 1861, although the school did not open until 1877. It has its main campus in Boulder, with branches in Colorado Springs and Denver. The Colorado School of Mines (1869), in Golden, and Colorado State University (1870), at Fort Collins, were founded before statehood, and the State Normal School of Colorado (later Colorado State College of Education; now University of Northern Colorado), in Greeley, was established in 1889. Colorado Mesa University (1925), in Grand Junction, serves the westernmost part of the state. Another public institution, Fort Lewis College (1964), in Durango, grew from an Indian school founded in 1911 into a liberal arts college whose mission includes providing tuition-free education for Native Americans.
