Colorado School of Mines is an excellent choice to further your education! While Colorado School of Mines is anything but simple or easy, the challenging education provides the respect and admirability of your degree upon graduation. Colorado School of Mines, outside of the rigorous and extraordinary academics, is absolutely beautiful and provides an awesome backyard of the Rocky Mountains! I highly recommend attending Mines.

It's a tough school to get into. It's an engineering college that teaches you good work ethic and morals. It's a small school that has a fairly high drop out rate. It's a school with high reputation.
