    You will not get bored at CU Boulder. It seems like events are constantly happening on campus (museum talks, concerts, cultural events, etc). There are also many clubs and organizations to join such as Academic clubs (including the Anthropology Club), Greek System, Athletic groups, and the CU Golden Buffalo Marching Band. If you want to get off of campus, you can walk around the Pearl Street Mall and go shopping or watch buskers, go to concerts, go tubing on the Boulder Creek, or hike in the mountains. If you want to go even further away (though still a manageable distance) you can go to ski resorts on the weekends.

    Chattaqua Park is nearby and many go there to hike. Pearl Street is another attraction and it is a short bus ride away. There is constantly something going on; all you have to do is leave your room and walk around campus to find something to do. The UMC has various events, like Poetry slams and Karaoke nights. Regardless of your interests, there is someone who also wants to do the same thing and a resource to help you do it.

    Boulder is known for the surrounding outdoor activities; there is excellent hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, running trails, and biking trails within 5-10 minutes of campus, and the tops ski resorts in Colorado are between 30 minutes and 1.5 hours away.

    There is never not something to do here in Boulder. If you're bored, hang a hammock up and read in it. Or you can catch a bus or ride your bike to the 29th street mall and see a movie in the theater. There is always the Pearl Street Mall too, which is just an interesting mix of people. Bottom line, there's always something to do in Boulder.

    Walk along the Pearl Street Mall, hike at Chataqua, ski in the mountains, hop down to Denver, attend basketball/ football games and the Farmers Market.

    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.
