"The lack of diversity at this campus left something to be desired, but the academic staff were very supportive and well-read. The cultural climate of the time allowed for a very relaxed tone, except for finals. Refuse the hedonism that loans may offer you, and instead restrict yourself to their financial study and the belt-tightening that will only build great habits regarding all other aspects of finance. All in all, it was a complicated time full of fun, games, cheap and greasy snacks, and wild antics typical of teenagers and wanton, crazed bachelors of all types. Boulder was wild, but always rife with lessons in a given subject, or of human nature, behaviors, and contradictions."

"I think that fundamentally the education was outstanding. The school has some of the best professors in the world. They are intelligent and helpful. However, having a degree in Japanese and Linguistics doesn't give the career satisfaction I desire today. Language skills should be electives or possibly classes used to get advanced degrees in that particular language field. Having a technical skill can open many doors for new grads. This is one of the reasons why I plan on getting an MBA."

"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."

"Studying physical geography and Geology at CU (not UC- that is California) was the most amazing experience and best decision of my life. I had brilliant professors who inspired and encouraged me. Due to the location of the campus, many of the classes had a field component. Instead of looking at slides of glacial formations, we got in a van, drove into the mountains and hiked around as we learned how the topography formed. When studying soils we headed East of 15 min, to the high plains. The social life is amazing. Many of my best friends are people I met in my Freshman dorm. CU is very big, so whatever crowd you are looking for, you will find it. Class size for freshman courses can be 100 to 600 students (Chemistry Room 140), so you can blend in if you want. You can also stand out and have your professors and TAs know you by name, you just need to reach out and introduce yourself during Office Hours. The social and academic opportunities are endless!"
