University of Colorado Boulder Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (47)
I would say that the education in University of Colorado Boulder is very basic. School does not focus on education quality but focuses on filling their classes more. I think advisors are very misleading. They try to lead students to do many things at once and explore many classes which are not even required for your major. School of Arts and Science is very poorly managed and you could only hope for better job after graduation. School of engineering and business school are much more preferred by employees. Im pursing my masters from different school because I could not find a good job after graduation. As for the location of the campus is very good and environment is very friendly as well.
Various degrees to explore as a freshman. Large classes, but they get smaller as you get more specific. Professors care about the class and come prepared, its rare to get a professor that doesn't care. Most of my professors helped me figure out my career and would go out of their way to prepare me for graduation. Amazing food with the dining halls, but also on "the hill" right off-campus. It's a large school, so it may be hard to find your group at first, but they have many diverse clubs to pick from! Living costs are very expensive and the student body tends to be mostly rich, no diversity with money. Greek life isn't big enough to be very noticeable.
You can get a great education at the University of Colorado at Boulder, but you have to be proactive about it. This school does have a hefty amount of required "core" courses, so especially if you're interested in a double major, don't expect to be able to take a lot of electives. There are some amazing professors on campus, so be sure to read reviews and track them down. Apart from that, leave yourself time to explore Boulder and take advantage of all of the awesome outdoor activities!
The University of Colorado at Boulder Civil Engineering program is an outstanding program. The program has some of the best most engaging and supportive professors I have ever met. The school has countless research opportunities and the professors are always available to talk with you about classes, research, or future opportunities. The school's financial services are average, and I know that the school particularly for out of state students may not seem worth the money. Though there are many scholarship opportunities to help with the financial burden. I found while working in industry that I was definitely very prepared for my career based on the classes I was instructed to take and the material that was focused on in these courses. Overall, I believe the University of Colorado at Boulder is an exemplary institution thats biggest asset is its outstanding professors.
I loved the University of Colorado, Boulder. The four years I spent there were some of the best years of my life. Although I enjoyed my experience, I did not fall in the with the course material. However, this was not the university's fault, I just wasn't aware of what I wanted to do at the time. Hence the reason why I am going back to school to pursue my Master's in Accounting!
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.
CUB is a really fun college. You will find all kinds of people here, and you can do whatever you want to do and study whatever you want to study. The Integrative Physiology program is very strong with some of the best instructors (think Nobel Prize). Also heavy research oriented so if you want to get somewhere, you are very likely to find awesome academics as well as influencers.
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.
The University of Colorado at Boulder is an amazing educational institution in one of the most idyllic towns in the country. The University provides quality instruction with real life applications to assist students in their future careers. The school provides an array of social networking opportunities and supports a diverse and welcoming student population. Furthermore, my degree from CU has helped me get into law school and medical school. I developed the confidence and commitment to continue my educational career by attending this University. I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend this school. Go Buffs!
Staff and faculty are always there to help you working towards your career goals. I have a professor who hands out his cell phone number and encourages students to call when they have questions about school projects. Classes are challenging, but it is rewarding in the end. The campus has beautiful mountain views, and it's very environmental friendly and diversified.
