After University of Colorado - Boulder

I think the number and variety of courses offered is wonderfull. I have always wanted to take a class on Greek mythology, and they have it! It's so cool! I also love their system of doing recitation classes to go along with lectures to help students review what was taught in the large lecture hall in a smaller sized classroom. Academic advisors are very helpful in guiding you to what classes you should take or how many credits is too much in one semester. The RAP is really great too! It stands for Residential Academic Programs. In certain residence halls, they require students to take a class within that hall which benefits the students a lot because the classroom is right there and easy to access and they also get to know classmates/roommates better too!

I currently go to the University of Colorado- Boulder and I absolutely love it. The teachers are amazing, the advisors truly are there to help you out through anything, and the community is incredible! I came to the school with some high school friends, but I ended up getting out of my shell and meeting new people through getting involved in clubs and was able to expand my friend group. The people I have met at this school will be a part of my life forever. Overall, the teachers are great, administration is great, culture is great. Boulder has it all.

This school hides very good academics under a haze of party school reputation as well as Boulder's reputation. It is the only college or university to send a device to every planet and the pluto. MIT patterned their aerospace engineering program after CUs, and Frank Oppenheimer himself revamped the physics department. Compile this with the beautiful location and this is a great school!
