    Big University with fun atmosphere. Hiking and outdoor activities galore. Parking difficult would not bring a car. Greek life big but a lot of other clubs and activities. Dorm food not great but a lot of great restaurants close to campus.

    MaIf you want to make friends, you need to be comfortable reaching out and talking to people you dont know. The courses are amazing and all of my teachers so far have been really passionate and engaged. My academic advisor has not really helped me at all, so if you are good at figuring out your schedule and what courses you need to graduate its not too bad.

    Make sure to fill out their scholarship application by January 15! They try to match you with any eligible scholarships that is school-specific with just one application! Once at Boulder make sure to try to join student organizations and make lots of friends and connections! Also go to your teachers office hours, even if it's just to get to know them.

    Don't be afraid to ask for help! College courses are difficult but it doesn't have to be such a challenge, ask for help from others in your class or professors or TA's, they are there to help you!

    It's easy to get caught up in the flow of campus life and forget why you decided to go, but you can't let that happen. Take some time before classes start and think through what you want to do with your life, and why it's important to you to go to classes and get the degree you want. It's not hard to stay on track in your classes as long as you remember why they are important to you.
