I have to admit that the campus of the Colorado State University is pretty nice! They are the arch-rivals of my university´s sports teams, the Wyoming Cowboys. You should try to go to Fort Collins in fall when you might have the chance to visit the annual Colorado State - Wyoming football game at Hughes Stadium. It´s called the Border War, because Fort Collins (Colorado) and Laramie (Wyoming) are neighboring cities, just on different sides of the state border. Unfortunately Colorado State was much better than Wyoming in the last couple of years. But at least we play better basketball :)
Fort Collins has one of the highest per-capita microbreweries in the USA. My favorite is New Belgium for not only great beer, but supporting the community and doing a lot of environmental work. You can go to the brewery and get a tasting for free! Plus they have tours and cool stuff for sale. Other cool breweries include Coopersmiths and O'Dells.

Fort Collins Museum of Art
This small installation, found in an old bank building downtown, houses the Fort Collins Museum of Art. As the town is a little small to support a permanent collection of art, instead the museum is dedicated to one or two temporary exhibits at a time. They are usually interesting exhibits (when I went I saw the glasswork of William Morris, who created beautiful pieces that hardly looked like glass, drawing on a lot of folklore and mythology to create his images). Overall, they have created a great atmosphere to come visit the arts in this town.
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 10:00am - 5:00pm
Saturday noon - 5:00pm
Admission: $8 adults
$6 senior (65+) or students

See the Avery House
This great old home is named for its owner, who is responsible for assuring that Ft. Collins would have extremely wide streets, even today. His rationale was to have streets so wide that a large horse-and-wagon team could easily make a u-turn without causing problems. because of this, College Avenue today has diagonal parking on both sides, plus diagonal parking in the middle of the street, plus four lanes of traffic!
Tours are available at specified times.

Snow Shoeing in Colorado...
Now, if you go to Fort Collins during the winter you could still go to the Rocky Mountains and do some snow shoeing! I highly recommend it!
You can rent the snow shoes at REI on College Avenue in Fort Collins.
If you go to Fort Collins you should take some time to go to the Rocky Mountains and do some hiking!

Nearly continuous whitewater! Take a waterproof camera and enjoy the sites also. You'll probably see a deer or two.
