  • All ages will enjoy walking through the campus, attending sporting events or just having a picnic on a lawn and watch the students walk by.

  • One of the most beautiful campuses in the country located in a magnificent setting. Love this school, the engineering school is one of the best and the students are a lot of fun. Don't understand any of the whiners on this site, can't think of a better place to go to college. If you could moved the entire campus and faculty as is to California it would instantaneously drop the admission rate down into the low 20 percent due to the competition to get in. Academic ratings would skyrocket with no changes to the programs. Look at UCSD, UCLA, UCB and UCSB what they have that Boulder doesn't is a state with 40 million people killing themselves to get into one of their better public universities.
  • CU has a reputation of exploiting young women. From scandals involving the football team recruiting that resulted in many women reporting rape and assault. Knowing that I am not surprised that the CU athletic department is under the covers with a private school like Southwest Acupuncture College "SWAC". In 2013 this school was sited for multiple noncompliance of accretive standards. The school was knowingly operating outside standards and under educating the student population as a result. In 2014 students from this school began working on the CU girls basketball team. What the hell CU? Why do you present high standards for women but give them support from undereducated student practitioners who attend a school with a know past history of low standards. I thought from your commercials that CU had standards. Guess not.
  • The campus is beautiful and the CEM graduate program is ranked in the top 15 in the country. The graduate program has a great culture and the professors seem to love their work and are respectful and genuinely concerned about the success of their students. The in state tuition rates are very reasonable for the quality of education received. My family and I have greatly enjoyed our time in the area.
  • Over priced place where they'll rob you worse than the government. You'll have to pay for parking even though it's a public university. Students who go here are mostly high as a kite, drink more than your great-grandfather. Yeah, have fun at this dump.
  • Famous for its lack of parking and draconian crackdown on 420 gatherings, the University of Colorado is a perpetual middle top tier denizen in the Playboy rankings, which is more than I can say for its academic ranking. Though there are occasional pockets of excellence, the corporatization of this once noble University has rendered it bland and toothless. Maybe someday they will drop football and get serious about academic excellence, but the tail continues to wag the dog at CU.
