"CU Law has made the transition to law school pretty easy. The work load is challenging and the professor's have great expectations, but everyone is approachable and seems to be dedicated to helping you learn. Overall great experience."

"As a grad student at the College of Music, I am very happy with the quality of my education and the services offered for my area of study. However, the college has around 600 students and the building is far too small for the student population. As far as the general campus, the city of Boulder is a wonderful and generally safe place to live. One of the only cons would be that the student center cafeteria is not open after 6."

"My faculty is extremely supportive of both my academic goals and career goals. Everyone, professors, students, and staff are very friendly and welcoming. The campus is beautiful. Colorado University has it's own natural history museum, art museum, and lots of music programs if you choose to get involved. They are also very athletically minded, and each department has it's own Ultimate Frisbee team. Boulder is a very cool city, with lots of scenic views, pedestrian walkways and shopping areas, delicious food, and fun night spots. It's a bit more expensive than I'd like, but you can see why. No one ever seems to be in a bad mood in Boulder, because it's just too lovely and has everything you need. The bus system rocks! And drivers giveway to pedestrians and bicyclists (of which, there are many). Overall, CU is a great school."

"tough business school although not many practical classses. Many classes have small ratio of student to teacher. Availability of sports, gorgeous country and outdoor activities and great weather a plus and a minus since it can be distracting. Great opportunity for social life. Altogether, a serious and way better than average college experience."
