While much of Greeley's rich history and roots lay in agriculture, its steady growth has helped make it a center for industry as well as farming. Meatpacker Swift & Company and utility company Atmos Energy both call Greeley home, and the city counts State Farm Insurance, North Colorado Medical Center and Halliburton Energy Services among its biggest employers. In addition to a strong economy and considerable employment opportunities, the city offers an increasingly broad arts scene, and its Greeley Creative District was listed as an official Creative District by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade since 2014. Greeley also offers an array of options for those seeking a world-class education. The city is home to the University of Northern Colorado, the Institute of Business & Medical Careers and the Academy of Natural Therapy, among other educational institutions.
