Most Helpful Review for University of Colorado Boulder

There are classes ranging from several hundred students to just a handful. It is easy to contact teachers and have them help you in the courtesy of their own office. There are also help rooms for several of the math and science classes where you can get help from your peers and staff. Most of the classes are appropriately challenging and have good professors.

    I am meeting outstanding academic challenges, which push me to the top of my game. I find time to access stunning mountains and ski resorts once weekly, and go mountain biking as often as I can. My roommate and friends in the Residential Academic Program have helped me to know I've found my tribe.

    CU Boulder is an eclectic and unique school. There are several different ways to get involved on campus and in the day to day boulder scene. I know that if you get involved, you will feel as if you're a part of the campus and it's community and excellence.

    Very high percentage of classes are taught by graduate students. I felt that I was part of a diploma mill that was funding their research projects, I even my adviser with 499 other students. The local community college offers a far superior education for a fraction of the cost.

    The town near the campus has nearly anything you could want. Pear Street mall isn't too far from there. The campus is beautiful and open.

    The University of Colorado Boulder is an incredible institution that allows students to challenge themselves academically while also allowing for time to be spent enjoying the fantastic Front Range city of Boulder. Out of the three colleges that I have attended, I have by far enjoyed CU Boulder the most due to the connections I have made with professors that have catapulted my academic career and the opportunities that studying here has afforded me. One of the only things that I would change would be the limited online class options.
