Most Helpful Review for Colorado School of Mines

For the first year at the Colorado School of Mines, the majority of the required classes are classes that many honor students have already taken in high school. The classes include calculus 1, chemistry 1 and 2, and physics 1. Granted, these classes are much more difficult in college than they were in high school.

    Small and very dedicated campus. The school is very focused on its students being academically successful and there are always people willing to help. While very rigorous academically there are many non academic activities to participate in.

    Colorado School of Mines is a great school and is full of incredible opportunities. However, it is not a cake walk. I have only been at this school after transferring in for a couple months and it has proved to be extremely challenging.

    It's a tough school, but it is worth it. I've learned so much, and I would recommend this school to anyone who takes their education seriously. If you want a party school, Boulder is just up the road.

    CSM is an academically intense institution. The faculty is incredible and extremely knowledgable in their area of expertise. Despite the rigorous curriculum, students retain active lifestyles and are involved in numerous clubs and organizations.

    Mines is very difficult and frustrating but rewarding. The teachers and advisors could use some more training.

    Excellent science/math based academics. Small class sizes and low student to teacher ratio. Improving facilities: new petroleum engineering building, student center, student recreation center, athletic fields, intramural fields, u-grad dorms.
