Degree: Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

I absolutely loved attending the University of Colorado in Boulder. Boulder is one of the most amazing towns in the country, and the university is unparalleled in the opportunities is provides to science majors. The caliber and quantity of research happening at CU is amazing, and as an undergraduate you can find amazing opportunities to work in labs, find mentors, become an undergraduate TA and more if you seek them out. At CU you will receive a quality education while having an amazing experience in the outdoors. Boulder is liberal, progressive, outdoorsy, friendly, fun, and there is always something to do. Hiking steps from your house, skiing nearby, shopping, concerts, good food, etc. I loved my education here, and encourage others to look int the opportunities and experiences CU can provide. CU is a big school, so be prepared to take initiative and advocate for yourself. However, I always say that you can make a big school smaller, but not a small school bigger. Just make sure to join some club or sport while you are here. That is KEY.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2008

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!

Degree: Physics, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a big university, and easy to get lost amongst the crowd. Still, many of the professors are good, and interested in talking with students one-on-one.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2010

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.

Degree: Communication, General
Graduation Year: 2009

I couldn't have asked for more wholesome college experience. Boulder is home to one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation, not to mention the breathtaking mountain views and endless outdoor activities right in your backyard.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2007

The professors were excellent, but the institution and administration were so horrible that they were causing an exodus of the great teachers.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2007

I wish I had taken on an academic minor in addition to my BA in music, I felt intimidated by the number of intro-level academic courses I had to catch up on as an upperclassman to earn a BA rather than a BM in music.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2010

Amazing faculty, facilities and grounds. Class sizes for some of the core undergraduate engineering classes were a little too big. Overall a great experience.

Degree: Geography, Other
Graduation Year: 2009

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!
