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.

    This is an excellent school for the dedicated individual who isn't afraid of hours upon hours of grueling work. The professors here are among the best in how they present the material as well as how they prepare you for upcoming exams. Personally, this school is by far the best education experience I could ask for.

    Colorado School of Mines is a small and difficult school. Every freshman class is a weed-out class. However, the community and support is strong.

    From all my research and my visit. I see it as one of the best colleges for a strong acedemic student wanting to suceed but stay in a layed back kind of enviroment.

    The staff here is very willing to help you with whatever you are having trouble with. Golden is a beautiful town and it's hard to get bored at Mines with so much to do around you. I love going here because the community pushes you to be the best you can be.

    Mines is a rigorous school for the math and science oriented mind. It is a small campus with only 3,000 students roughly, but it is a beautiful campus. Definitely academically oriented.
