Degree: English Language and Literature/Letters, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

CU, like any big university, gave me exactly what I wanted to take out of it. There are plenty of partiers, stoners, slackers, etc., but there are just as many communities and activities where you can find your niche and really thrive. Also the campus is gorgeous, which never hurts.

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2015

CU is a much better institution than its party reputation would have you believe. The facilities and staff are excellent. I was never wanting for academic resources (human or informational), all while enjoying the social benefits of attending a large university. Extracurricular groups and opportunities abound. It's easy to find your niche, to find your people.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2010

My first degree was a wonderful experience in learning my identity and learning about the world around me, not only in my direct community but internationally as well. Now I am learning to be a nurse so that I can make a difference in the world. College made my life better by helping me to think critically and making life long friends.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

CU is a great law school. The environment was friendly and supportive. Like all law schools, there are some issues with how they deal with tuition and class offerings, but it was more reasonable than most law schools I've heard about.

Degree: Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

I absolutely loved attending the University of Colorado in Boulder. Boulder is one of the most amazing towns in the country, and the university is unparalleled in the opportunities is provides to science majors. The caliber and quantity of research happening at CU is amazing, and as an undergraduate you can find amazing opportunities to work in labs, find mentors, become an undergraduate TA and more if you seek them out. At CU you will receive a quality education while having an amazing experience in the outdoors. Boulder is liberal, progressive, outdoorsy, friendly, fun, and there is always something to do. Hiking steps from your house, skiing nearby, shopping, concerts, good food, etc. I loved my education here, and encourage others to look int the opportunities and experiences CU can provide. CU is a big school, so be prepared to take initiative and advocate for yourself. However, I always say that you can make a big school smaller, but not a small school bigger. Just make sure to join some club or sport while you are here. That is KEY.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2008

An excellent educational experience with ample opportunity to become involved in a deeper, more meaningful way to have impact in the community, regardless of age. Set against a gorgeous backdrop of the Flat Irons, CU-Boulder offers an experience unlike any other!

Degree: Physics, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a big university, and easy to get lost amongst the crowd. Still, many of the professors are good, and interested in talking with students one-on-one.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2010

I would encourage you to get a degree that has practical application after graduation. Choose a program that gives you skills to take into the workplace that sets you apart from other candidates. If you get a business degree, go on to get your master's. If you choose history, add a second degree that gives you a stronger skill set. Consider getting a Spanish degree along with anything you choose-it adds diversity to your resume. And always take internships.

Degree: Communication, General
Graduation Year: 2009

I couldn't have asked for more wholesome college experience. Boulder is home to one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation, not to mention the breathtaking mountain views and endless outdoor activities right in your backyard.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2007

The professors were excellent, but the institution and administration were so horrible that they were causing an exodus of the great teachers.
