Administration: I was afraid for going to a school that is supposedly known as a 'drinking' school, but I was not really around people who did it much. I loved knowing that I did not have to follow the flow and that I could just worry about myself.

Scholarships: The whole thing of dealing with financial aid is hard. They make assumptions on your situation and sometimes the reason is more straight forward.

Campus Food: I love the fact that in CU Boulder, you have the chance to be a Vegan/Vegetarian and still have food options daily. There is a huge selection of food to cater to most dietary needs.

Campus Housing: I love to live on campus, it makes it easy to concentrate on the work that I need to. Also, the group project are so much easier when you can walk 10 minutes to your room and invite your teammates there. Getting in touch with people is easy and having a floor with people who are taking the same class, helps with asking someone questions about homework.

Campus Food: Considering college food, it is pretty good at first but it got repetitive and old after awhile.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: At my first year of college, I expected more social activities within the dorm. Being in an engineering dorm, mos kids would leave their doors closed and play video games all day. On the other side, there was no partying or loud noises so studying in a quiet place was easy to find.

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.
