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.

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.
