In celebration of its 150th anniversary, Colorado State University produced a full-length documentary titled The Great Experiment: CSU at 150 which aired on Rocky Mountain PBS on October 1, 2020. Three years in the making, the documentary included newly digitized film and video such as a CSU-University of Colorado football game from 1919. This digital collection contains 53 interviews conducted specifically for the documentary between 2017 and 2020. CSU’s current and past president were interviewed (Joyce McConnell and Tony Frank respectively), as well as administrators and staff from across the university. Most interviews were conducted by documentary film producer Frank Boring. A script for the film is also included. This digital collection is available in CSU's digital repository, Mountain Scholar.
