5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many options for off campus dining. It can be delivered and is usually open very late.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is very strict about parking and violations of the honor code. They try to be strict about underage usage, but it's hard to with so many people doing it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was definitely lucky enough to get some scholarships from the school, but I still had to take out large amounts of loans in order to pay for my education.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always an option to attend a party on a weekend night. Some are wild while others are casual.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is always plenty of food on campus, and if the dining hall doesn't look appealing, there is always the grab'n'go option which has a lot to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very beneficial when getting to your classes. The campus is so big that it's nice to be a little closer. The people are great and rules are enforced by an RA. There are public bathrooms that are kept very clean and a dining hall only a few steps away, depending on where you live.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I think I'm going to transfer to the Business School. The workload can be pretty intense.

5 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Really great facilities. Norlin Library is great. Very green univiersities. Campus events are also great and traditions, activities and hangouts.

Guys & Girls: A lot of people dress like bohemians, Free People, Anthropologie, Patagonia kind of stuff. Very into yoga and nature.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy being at CU. The distance is great because I am not too close nor to far from my family since I live 45 minutes away. 20-30 minute bus trip to Denver.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like CU Boulder. It's great academic wise and I really enjoy my classes. I am able to balance my social and academic life. I personally think it is a great school.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Many facilities especially The Rec Center. The rec center is newly renovated which is pretty nice.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Pretty expensive especially on The Hill. Living with four people, be ready to pay at least 800 dollars without including any utilities. A lot of houses on The Hill are old and not renovated so it's kind of expensive for what it has.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus is dining especially if you wanna eat out every once in a while. There are plenty of options especially if you have some specific food preferences.

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.
