Thanks to a generous gift from Michael and Iris Smith, 10 students in chemistry received four years of full tuition.
50th Anniversary
Founded in 1968, the college celebrates its golden anniversary.
The new building houses state-of-the-art classrooms, cutting-edge research labs, and inviting study spaces.
A new state-of-the-art research laboratory facility opened in 2017.


At the Colorado State University College of Natural Sciences, we believe that discovery begins here. Our students are discovering their passions and transforming lives. Our faculty are discovering new scientific phenomena and applications as well as new ways of educating the next generation. And together, everyone at the college is helping to spread these discoveries throughout our state and the world. We are grateful to have you along for the exciting journey.


The College of Natural Sciences Strategic Initiative Fund supports those areas of the college that need it most, whether research, scholarships, or updated infrastructure, helping to lead us into the future. Click here to give.

Undergraduate scholarships give the gift of education to bright minds who otherwise might not be able to attend college – or who would have to take out substantial loans or spend much of their time working rather than learning and discovering. Join us in supporting the leaders of tomorrow. To give, click here, and search for “Natural Sciences Undergraduate Scholarships.”

The college’s Women In Natural Sciences (WINS) program helps to support, mentor, and encourage female faculty in the college, providing networking events, speakers, and funding for conference travel. To give, click here, and search for “Women in Natural Sciences Program Endowment.”
