Ana from Parker, CO
CU Boulder's College of Engineering is one of the best in the country, and provides many opportunities for students to learn, gain hands-on experience, and pursue their passions both inside and outside of the classroom. The campus is gorgeous and is situated right in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and is close to some of the best hiking, rock climbing, and skiing in the country. Boulder provides an excellent mix of nature, culture, and academics; there are always exciting opportunities to learn, grow, and thrive on and off-campus.
