Overall Experience: There is a lot of variation in class size, but recitations make up for the lack of 1 on 1 with the professor

Athletics: The recent lack of success by CU in the Pac-12 has been very disappointing for the student body, but attending games is always a good time. Intramural sports are popular and offer a variety of sports and seasons to play.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am not worried about getting a job after college because CU is a great college

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: On-campus living is an experience you don't want to miss. You meet a lot of wonderful people in the resident halls and really hope into the college scene. Most dorms are close to your classes, but if they are not there is a "buff bus" that picks you up and stops throughout campus.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am non-Greek, so I don't know much about Greek Life.

3 College Junior

Athletics: CU's football team hasn't been the best in the past few years, but a "Champion Center" just was built for all the athletes. The Champion Center is amazing!

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.
