Student & Graduate Reviews (44)
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.
The University of Colorado at Boulder, Integrated Physiology degree provided me with a well rounded, advanced preparation for a career in healthcare. The degree curriculum was well thought out and I appreciated that there were elective options to individualize my course work. As a senior, there were six courses to choose from - giving the student flexibility in what they want to study. The anatomy program is fantastic, I feel more prepared than my peers in graduate school due to the rigor and depth of the anatomy course work. This program prepared me to be successful in healthcare and I would recommend CU Boulder, and the Integrated Physiology BA to anyone interested in science and healthcare.
My university was amazing! My professors really cared and took the time to listen and work with you. Not only that, the professors also worked on different lecturing techniques in order to ensure everyones unique learning style was addressed. I loved that in my major we worked outside and did a lot of hands on work
Absolutely beautiful campus and positive, inspiring college environment. There are so many ideas, hobbies, and activities going on at CU. I highly recommend that any and every undergraduate attend this school for their bachelor's degree -- you will NOT regret it.
The University of Colorado is a phenomenal institution with great faculty, a fantastic student body, and a beautiful setting with a multitude of outdoor recreation opportunities right outside its door. The ENVD/ Planning program, however, was abysmal. My graduating class was about 25 students, many of whom I'm still in touch with. None of them (that I'm aware of) pursued a career in the field. There are many fantastic programs available at the university, and I regret not choosing one of them, instead.
CU Boulder was a great place to study, and I would highly suggest it if you're a Colorado state resident. Otherwise it is not worth going to a state school and pay out of state tuition. The program there had a lot of great opportunity and it instilled a sense of logical thinking I wouldn't get otherwise. Being an Engineering student will help quite a bit, but you will be a bit secluded from campus.
CU Boulder is a wonderful school all-around. The professors are world-class and you will constantly be learning from the newest and brightest research going on in the sciences. The advisors are always helpful and available for all questions you may have, from transitioning to college to preparing for life after graduation. I felt like the campus was one of the most gorgeous in the whole world, and Boulder itself is a very active and vibrant place to live. As far as large schools go, CU Boulder made me feel like I was part of a community rather than just a number on a page. Highly recommend the hard sciences at this university, as the research going on here is extremely exciting and top-notch!
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.
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.
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.
