    One of the great things about Boulder is that it's a city within the mountains. If you like nature, you can go hike or ski or snowboard (once the snow starts) or fish, all in less than an hour drive (if that even). If you want to shop, the Pearl Street Mall is a great mix of chain stores and local unique businesses, plus the food is great. CU has enough clubs for everyone to find their niche, although that's not the only way to meet new friends. Even right on campus there's a bowling alley and food like Panda Express and Coldstone! The bus system at Boulder might be the best. You can get anywhere important right from campus, including downtown Denver if you ever need a break, or want to go see the Aquarium (for example).

    Boulder is a great city, but Denver is really only a 45 minute drive away. Bus and lightrail tickets are free for all students, making transportation easy and cost free. The campus is gorgeous, and the Rockies are basically in the back yard. There are a ton of clubs, activities, and organizations- 13% of the student body is involved in Greek Life. The rec. center is amazing, and there's even a pool shaped like a Buffalo on campus. There are a ton of opportunities for fun on campus and within a very close distance for all students.

    There is so much to do for fun. Between Pearl St. and 29th Street there is shopping, ice-skating, movie theaters, and so much more. CU is home to boulders ONLY bowling alley - which is fantastic. There's a huge night life and plenty of open space for out-door activities. Hiking in the Flatirons or Chataqua is the best and during snow season Skiing and Snowboarding is easily accessible. There's also snow shoeing, and fishing. Indoors the art world is endless and the internet connection isn't half bad.

    There are plenty of ways to have fun up here! There is the 29th Street Mall for shopping, Pearl Street which has a lot of great shops and restaurants to go check out, and the Hill where a lot of students go to eat and hang out. There are also great places on campus that have bowling and pool tables, or you could go to the Recreation Center to swim, rock climb, play basketball, or even ice skate! If you don't want to do anything in Boulder, there are also busses that go to Denver and to skiing slopes, so really your imagination is the limit!
