Overall Experience: CU is, by far, the most beautiful campus on american soil. There as so many things to do in Boulder and on campus. What makes CU so unique is our traditions and our location. I fell in love with cu when i first stepped on campus and wouldn't go anywhere else.

Health & Safety: Sexual assault at CU is higher than other universities. Steps need to be taken in prevention such as education and bystanders intervening. Meaning that alcohol is not the problem when it comes to sexual assault. It's the people that commit the crime. There is an Office of Victim Services in the C4C and other facilities in Boulder that can assist victims of sexual assault.

Campus Housing: My dorm was located at Williams Village which is a little over a mile away from main campus. There were buses that looped but many times I arrived to some classes late even though I left 30 minutes prior. My dorm itself was nice. I had two roommates and we shared one bathroom. Our floor wasn't close but I was close with my roommates.

Greek Life: At CU less than 15% of the 30,000 undergraduates are involved in Greek life. I, myself is not involved, but I considered rushing. I am friends with girls in sororities and I adore them. I don't base my opinions on others whether they are involved in Greek life or not. Since our fraternities are not part affiliated with the university, they have more freedom with their parties. Anyone can into these parties. Girls more easier than guys.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our football team is not good but there is still HUGE emphasis on program. This past year, a new indoor complex was built for the team. It is not fair that the my family and others had to contribute the construction of a building that most of us don't have the opportunity to utilize.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The only thing I would have to complain about Boulder is its lack of ethnic diversity.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: My biggest concern is sexual assault, which is something that is inevitably prevalent when you go to a party school like Boulder. Be safe and always travel in packs!

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.
