Student & Graduate Reviews

James Hope - 9/4/2015
Degree: Political Science
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."

"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."

"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."

"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: Liberal Studies
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!"

"It was a lot of work. Engineering majors are more different than I thought as a freshman and I wish I'd have waited a year to pick my major. I didn't party much, which I didn't miss."
