There was an interesting article I read the other day about the meatpacking(if that is the correct term) plant in Greeley making accommodations for their employees that observe Ramadan so I am guessing that religious tolerance is practiced.
My impression from reading this site and having relatives in the area that freedom is still alive and well in the area.

Every town, city, region, county, area of The United States is religious. It can be Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Mormon, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, Atheist, Devil worshipers, tree worshipers, football worshipers and any and all others---yes, every religion is everywhere and is a protected right.

You want an Answer to your question then look in the phone book under Churches, Religious Organization etc. I will guarantee that you will find many listings.

Even if you by chance only find only one religious person, does that alone say the area is religious, or are your gods deaf to the lone believer or only hears the multitudes in adoration and worship.

Surprising with all the bars in downtown Loveland and soda in the grocery stores.

I will say that if you are looking for the conservative christian experience that Colorado Springs is probably a better choice. The Fort is a bit more tolerant.

Wink Just how religious?

Q: Is the area religious?

A: No, if by religious you mean a devoutly Christian community. Ft. Collins is a secular town that enjoys a number of different religious faiths, and many good options. Christianity just happens to be most widely observed.

Loveland is a more conservative community, but then the question if commuting from there to school in Ft. Collins. Colorado Springs would make either of these towns appear as liberal as Boulder, CO. If one defines their life in such terms, Colorado Springs might be a better choice.

However, if compared to places in the deep South, most anything in Colorado is going to come off like Sodom and Gomorrah. Colorado tends to be a rather secular, live and let live kind of place.

I assume that you're going to CSU, right? There are a number of Christian groups on campus (for example, the Navigators). I'm sure you'll find many other like-minded students. As others have said, you'll not likely find all your fellow students (or probably even a majority) are on the same page as you, but you'll certainly find many others. To CSU's credit, I'd say that there are a number of political and religious points of view on campus and the student body seems laid-back enough to accept all of them.

As others have mentioned, Colorado Springs as a town does have a lot of Christian ministries headquartered there, but I doubt that affects life on the campuses down there (UCCS or CC) all that much. Besides, few of those employed by those ministries will be college age anyway. With other factors considered, I think most people would be far better off at CSU than UCCS, at any rate.

I can tell by your post, you have what most Americans lack, common sense and research skills.

We have traveled around the states and world due to military relocations and is always baffles me, when people ask, how can you move so often and survive.

I grunt I am a Marine Wife, we research and survive and adapt in each location.
