Colorado School of Mines Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Going here was extremely challenging. I was not prepared for how difficult it would be out of high school. However, now having graduated, I believe it was an extremely rewarding experience and absolutely worth the hard work. Don't come here expecting to have fun all the time. At Mines, you learn how to balance fun and a lot of hard work, and that is a very valuable life skill.
The best school to go to for an engineering degree. You will have a great work ethic if you are able to graduate from here and they will push you to be ready for the workforce
If you want a challenge this is the school to go to. College is only worth going to if you get a hard degree. I love/hated my time there, but made the best of friends through the intense school work. I would go there again over any other location. There are still parties there and the girl/guy ratio keeps getting better!
This is a great school to get challenged academically. Great facilities and resources as well. On top of that, the campus location cannot be beat with activities including hiking, trail running, mountain biking, kayaking, rock climbing and more within a 10 mile radius of the campus!
I loved the smaller university atmosphere. You get to know a lot more people that way and get personal treatment from the professors. I cannot lie, it is a very difficult school and it requires a lot of hard work, but it pays off once you get a good job after graduating. You will sometimes have to stay in to finish a project while friends at other schools are partying. After working in the industry for a few years, i realized how important having Colorado School of Mines on my certificate (did i mention the certificate is actually an engraved plate of silver?).
