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.

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.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School is great. Education as not as easy as been during High School Years but challenge builds interest.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football team is great. They won state championship last year.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Only come here if you're really sure that you love math and science.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors explain everything very clearly and always stop to make sure we understand the material before moving on. They also encourage people asking questions, so people are much more forward with asking questions than in other schools. The courses are challenging but the professors are always making sure they are doing everything in their power to help each student understand everything.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek Life always has activities going on around campus, usually offering it to anybody on campus. They provide a lot of excitement to the community here.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are tons of teams to get involved in, and they are all very welcoming to everyone of any talent. I am on the triathlon team, for example, and they are very excited to welcome anybody in. They also have group workouts and activities almost every day of the week and take trips together for races. Our varsity sports perform very well in their division. Our soccer teams and cross country teams have done very well this year, and the football team won many of their games as well.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Colorado School of Mines (CSM) has a fantastic staff that, though the workload is incredibly daunting at times, wants to see you through each step and make sure you understand it. There are more than enough resources to help supplement for the material that you do not understand. Additionally, the students here are all extremely motivated and involved in their school, despite the heavy workload. It makes for a great environment to be surrounded by equally driven and involved students as yourself.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Profs really show interest in the success of their students and there is always help available to students for their success in classes. Students have to decide to take the help or not.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is an enormous amount of recruiting that happens on campus. The school is great at giving the students chances to network and interview with companies.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: the campus is a safe environment for all students

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have enjoyed living in the campus apartments. They are close to campus and access to the community is easy.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have never shown interest so I don't know how easy or difficult it is to join
