"We are really disappointed at this school's total lack of caring for their students during the pandemic and beyond. Obviously the pandemic set up a poor learning environment, but with no refunds for room/board when I was kicked out of the dorms in 2020 is a complete rip-off (there is a class action suit ongoing). CU Boulder also charged me an extra cleaning fee of $500 on top of the zero refund for the Spring 2020 semester. The online learning is naturally not what we were paying for and is not a good value proposition (especially for an out of stater). We got charged for a bunch of on campus fees when we were not able to step one foot on the campus. Also, we tried to use the school's grade replacement, but apparently there was a form that we did not know needed to be filled out so they will not replace the grade for us or provide a refund or anything else. Basically, all we get is sorry you didn't follow the process and oh well if advising did not tell you about this process step (which is completely ridiculous in the first place). So now we paid for a class twice that I do not need and I still both grades in my GPA calc. BE AWARE as well that if you do not waive health insurance (every semester) they will charge you nearly $2000 a semester - again ridiculous, we provided all of the information freshman year and it is incomprehensible to do this every semester. We are going to transfer to a school that is not so full of red tape and cares to work with the students to be successful, not a school that overcharges and PROUDLY stands behind unnecessary bureaucracy. We thought Colorado was a state that cared about people and doing the right thing, we were mistaken."

"As a student in the University of Colorado - Boulder, I always felt my insights and thoughts were welcomed and encouraged. The University gave me every opportunity to expand my knowledge and dive deeper into the studies I was interested in. The faculty and educational environment allowed me to grow into the graduate student, community member, and professional individual I am now. During my time at CU, I was a tour guide for potential students and their families. This opportunity to showcase my campus created a deep reflection on every part of the University that meant something special to me."

"I enjoyed my time at the University of Colorado. I was impressed with the Student Financial Aid office, they helped me complete my degree after my financial situation became nearly to difficult to attend. I was also impressed with the Political Science staff, I enjoyed my classes and would recommend CU."

"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!"

"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."
