Campus Housing: My room is part of a complex of seventy year old buildings. It's a studio apartment furnished with bed, dresser, a chair and desk. Rent is $800 and includes utilities and wi fi. Colorado has plans to tear down the area and build new buildings starting in 2018.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is close to campus and close to all of the other students. The houses and apartments are all great sizes and perfect for college students. The Hill is a fun place to be and living there next to a bunch of other college students is going to be so much fun!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Boulder has amazing food! The Hill has a variety of all kinds of food ranging from great sandwiches, to healthy bowls, smoothies, and awesome burritos. 29th Street mall also has all kinds of great and healthy places to eat. Pretty much anywhere in and around Boulder has great food!

3 College Freshman

Administration: The CU campus is very involved in student's lives in the dorm. Officers occasionally stroll down the residence halls and check on students that are loud or possibly underage drinking. All the officers are nice, as long are you are nice also.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received financial aid, but unfortunately not nearly enough that is needed. I would recommend really trying to get any and all aid that one can get, CU is a bit pricey.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always something to do in Boulder. Whether you go to the Hill, Pearl Street, 29th Street Mall, or the bars, Boulder will never disappoint. The party scene can definitely be a bit overwhelming, but it has a positive impact because there are so many people who party, so when people go out, they always end up with more friends than they started with.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are always so clean and everyone in the residence halls are helpful and kind! There are always different activities going on in my dorm that connect people to other people living the hall and the housing process was extremely easy and flexible.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

There will be many times throughout the college experience when a student will question his decision and dwell on other possibilities. The University of Colorado-Boulder is a significantly large school where an incoming freshman will undoubtedly feel lost on the long and lonely walk to class. You will find yourself contemplating the benefits that a smaller school could have offered and wonder whether you made the right choice. But it isn’t hard to lose that in the amazing beauty of the campus and the kind, openness of the students, which makes it easy to find your place. As the years progress, you will notice more the value in choosing Boulder with the pure intention of skiing as many days as possible. Throughout your time spent at CU, you will ask if you have surrounded yourself with the right people. Later, when you are confronted with choosing a profession, serious criticism may be cast onto your once prized major.

Such questions will plague several students attending a number of universities, yet not all of them will find solace in knowing they spent four years studying in one of the most stimulating cities in the country. It is almost impossible to narrow the experience down to one deciding factor. There is not just one simple thing that separates CU from the countless number of universities that a student has to choose from. Yet, it could have something to do with the mountains. Being greeted every morning by Colorado’s towering terrain never fails to put an inflated ego into place. Looking down from the highest peak in Vail is more than a subtle reminder of the benefits of dedication. Even fresh Aspen air is capable of lifting the lowest spirits. You are given one life and one college experience. The knowledge you can gain at CU is immeasurable, but not everything in life can be based on an academic curriculum.
