So far my school experience has been good. For the most part the classes are hard and the workload varies from class to class. If you want to party then you have to get in with the fraternities/sororities, or at least know someone in them. The food on campus is alright and if you don't like it you can take your pick from the many different places in Golden. There isn't anything i would really want to change about this school.

Wonderful school. Easily one of the top engineering schools in the country, and maybe the world. Every program is world class. Professors are great, students are connected and act like a family. For an engineering school, the sports are amazing. Usually winning the division title in each sport.

Although I struggle in my classes a lot I have never felt a more compassionate and involved community in any place I have ever been. I love the campus and all of the people in it. I feel at home there and and I am very glad that I chose to attend school here and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
