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.

I have visited this school many times. Two of the times have been workshops for women entering engineering and sciences and they have both been great times. I always feel welcome and like I already belong even though I am just a senior.» Read More
Colorado School of Mines is in a beautiful pocket on the west side of Denver, so it doesn't feel like you're living in the main part of Denver, but you still have the commodities of a city within reach provided you have a vehicle or the time to take the bus. All the students are nerds by definition, and you work super hard to graduate within a reasonable time. When you're not studying or thinking about the money you're going to make after graduating, there's plenty of other activities to try out and explore like hiking, caving, intramurals, concerts, and all sorts of clubs.» Read More
