I know this is an odd thread, but we've had everything else. What is your favorite college town housing a major state university in the Rocky Mountain Region?

I like Fort Collins, CO the best. It blends, scenery, hospitality, and convenience together perfectly. Its only drawback is the increasing traffic. A close second in my opinon, is Laramie, a wonderfully laid-back college town, and a smaller version of Fort Collins in many ways.

Please note, I realize that this is an incomplete list, and that your favorite college town may not be on here. I apologize, but I just tried to include the major state university college towns in the Rocky Mountain region.

I did a summer internship at NCAR in Boulder many years ago. There was literally a trail that started at the back door of the office building on the mesa. Two minutes on the trail and I was in the middle of ponderosa forest at 8000+ feet.

I liked Fort Collins. It seemed more down to earth than Boulder.

Since this is such an old post, I doubt I'll get any response from the OP, but you really should have included Provo, it is a very nice college town, though the university is religious. Combined with UVU in Orem, there are nearly 80,000 college students in the area.
