"I loved my 4 years at the University of Colorado Boulder. Fortunately I was able to earn a partial scholarship to be able to attend. Over all i feel like Boulder produces very intellectual graduates who go off to change the world. For me I loved the experience I had with in the Psychology department. it was challenging and informational. Everyone in that department help put me on a path to attain my Masters degree and I am forever grateful"

"UCCS was a wonderful school that provided me with many opportunities. I grew up in New York my entire life and went to college in Connecticut for my first year and a half. After realizing that the east coast was no longer my home, I decided to venture out and explore new territory. I am so glad I was able to attend school in the state of Colorado. Not only was the institution itself beautiful, but so was the surrounding area. The classes were extremely interesting, the professors were highly professional and always willing to help their students, and I believe the school itself really helped me prepare for my future endeavors. UCCS helped me realize my passion and helped me realize that I was meant to continue my education in hopes of obtaining a career I had not even thought about while attending school in Connecticut."

"I look back on my time at CU Boulder as the best 4 years of my life thus far. I loved living close to campus and being part of the Boulder community. Boulder is a unique and beautiful place. The school itself offers a lot of support in career services and even health care - the health center helped me so much in so many different ways. I always knew if I was sick or had an ongoing health problem that I could just pop into the health center and be helped effectively. I also got involved in several on campus organizations such as Timmy Global Health. I traveled with TGH to Ecuador on a medical brigade and it was one of the most life changing and fulfilling experiences I've had. I would definitely recommend CU Boulder to anyone looking for a wonderful undergraduate college experience."

"Best college experience. I transferred after a year at another out of state school, and hands down CU was the best place to be. The classes are academically challenging and the environment is unbeatable. There's such an environment of unity at this school."

"I like Boulder and what it has to offer. It is an energetic city with plenty of things to do- hiking, camping, anything active, great breweries, music options...beautiful! My academic experience, however, was not what I expected, wanted, or needed. The classes were too big (had many 400 person classes) and the professors were really hit or miss. CU did offer a variety of classes and interesting options, but unless you were lucky or got to register early you weren't able to get in. Overall, I feel like the school didn't really help its students. I struggled in almost every area- concerning finances, academics, living situations, general concerns-and would not feel supported or helped at all. Especially being in state and needing a lot of financial aid, it was frustrating not having people that cared. I truly value education, but really developed no desire to go to class (I still did). CU is extremely over priced with not a lot to show. It is the most beautiful campus in the nation-is that where our money is going? Somehow, it was "voted" yes to construct a buffalo shaped pool, and upgrade the rec center once again. Completely unnecessary, I paid for it, and wasn't able to use it since I graduated the year after it was all finished. I was really excited for CU. It seemed promising. Not all of my college career was bad, I met amazing people and had fun, also learned about myself and grew up. With 30,000 people at your school, you kind of learn to swim. But it was too big, and I got too lost. There were some really low points. If you want an active, thriving environment, then go for CU. If you are into too much Greek life and creepy/ gross fraternity parties, then boulder is your place. I know people that had positive experiences too, so as everything it is subjective. But I would do it all differently. As a city I love boulder and its down to earth with great people. Also pretty yuppy people with lots of money and very particular needs concerning diet this, gluten free that, organic everything, and they look down at you if you're not (and can't afford it) I am all for good health too, but boulder is extreme. It is its own bubble! Interesting, not as diverse and excepting as people think. Great beer."
