4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am very happy with this school. The environment is very inviting to reach my potential as a student and as a person. I have been very challenged and have grown A LOT and I plan on continuing to do so in the future.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Mines has an excellent reputation as an engineering school. Many students have jobs lined up as seniors and have VERY little trouble finding well paying jobs.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt threatened or unsafe on campus. The campus police are very available and awesome people in general.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in a themed learning community (Nucleus) and the experience was absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to any and eveyone. but overall, living in the dorms was a lot of fun and a great place to live.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life can be a lot of fun if you want to be a part of it. There is plenty of selection for both frats and sororities. Rush week is a whole lot of fun. Also, it isn't a huge deal if you don't join. there are a lot of very busy people on campus who don't join and still have a ton of fun.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The varsity sports do amazing. In general, everyone here works hard. So, both academically and athletically our campus is very competitive and is very high achieving.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, the school has been a lot of work, but it has been very rewarding and I have learned a whole lot!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Mines! I am so happy with my decision to attend this school. The professors are very knowledgable and caring and the courses are extremely challenging but fair!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Career fair is a huge event where hundreds of companies come to Mines with the sole intent to hire students. The school has so many resources to help with job placement, if the student actually utilizes them job prospects are large.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel so safe on campus. I have not once felt unsafe.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The value is a bit high, but it is worth it for the proximity and amenities they offer.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The houses really care about philanthropy, however Greek life is not important to me so I do not know much about it.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Colorado School of Mines is an engineering school, athletics are not our first priority, but that is okay.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Colorado School of Mines, which is why I am returning for Graduate School.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This campus is very safe. I have never felt threatened while on campus, and this is coming from someone who has crossed campus at very late hours of the night on many occasions. There is very little crime that occurs on campus, and whenever something does happen, the police department on campus works hard to take care of it. There are multiple lines of communication to get a hold of the campus police by telephone, and there are also many police call stations around campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Course are very high quality and taught very well by professors who care. There is a large variety of courses offered, even though this school is very specialized. There have been a few moves towards more innovative classroom styles, and class sizes are very reasonable for a public college.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Getting a very good job after graduating from this school is almost a guarantee. In fact, most students have a job lines up during their senior year. Companies obviously value a Mines degree highly, because their is a very large wait list at all of our career days. A degree from Mines will get you into a great job and prepare you very well for it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live on campus only because it is required. I like it more than I expected, but it is still mostly a place for me to sleep at night because I do everything else on other parts of campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life here is not as big of a deal as in other places, the Greek houses are also less uptight and cliquey as other places as well. For the most part, if somebody is in Greek life, others just accept it as something that you do outside of academics and move on.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A lot of people have a lot of spirit towards the sports teams here and offer a lot of support. The athletes themselves are also very hard working people because they take just as hard of classes as everybody else, as well as their athletics.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not only is this school academically rigorous and constantly providing a challenge, but the atmosphere is wonderful. Every body is interested in seeing everybody else do well. Students are willing to help each other, even if they don't know each other, and professors are very approachable as well. There are so many opportunities to get help with material between office hours, tutoring, advising, etc that there is no reason that you could not get help on something that you do not understand.

There are many non-academic opportunities around campus as well. On top of all of this, the admin departments work really hard to make all of this run smoothly, and are all very friendly people as well. You also can't get a better physical environment that in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The cost to live on campus is currently $11,008. What this includes is housing and meal plans. Overall its pretty expensive to on campus with the only benefit being that the classes are a five minutes walk from your room.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Golden, CO is the very safe neighborhood. School usually close after 5 PM and there is still pretty light outside. I didn't hear about any kind of crime for the time being here. I feel safe and I assume a lot of students will share my feeling.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Everything is really clean and I don't really hear someone's complains. My personal opinion is the best quality of living for the reasonable price. Everything is functioning great and buildings are well maintained.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't see a lot of Greek around the campus, so cannot say that they really interact or affect the atmosphere around the school.
