What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
If you don't manage your time, and your responsibilities, Mines will eat you alive. 2 lab reports a week on top of 3D modelling homework, lon-capa, and a paper for NHV is too much to handle the day before you have all of these things due. Get ahead on your homework and stay there. Usually assignments open up either a week or two weeks before they're due.
Mary from Colorado Springs, CO
Hardest academic experience of my life. I have never studied so much and devoted so much time to school before.
Michael from Leesburg, VA
Classes are difficult but a great tutoring program. Don't expect to get a 4.0. Work hard and take a break.
Jenna from Grand Junction, CO
Colorado School of Mines takes a lot of work and every class will push you to your intellectual limits.
