We were visiting, because my son is interested in becoming a student of the CU Boulder campus. We have now been to the campus twice: once for a summer orientation session and back for auditions to be a student in the College of Music. I don't know if it's just something about Boulder, but I have not had one awkward... More

Lots of walking on this 90 minute tour. Beautiful view of the Flatiron Range of mountains in the near distance. Gives you a real sense of the school after completing the tour, visiting all the important places.

This University Campus is possibly the most beautiful in the country. The Italian style buildings with red tiled roofs situated below the the magnificent Boulder Flatirons sets it apart from all others.

I graduated from Cal Berkeley, but had I known about CU Boulder, I would have attended CU. It's simply stunning. The architecture, reminiscent of small villages in Italy with the incredible back drop of the Flatirons in the distance. Simply breathtaking. Both of our children have attended/attend CU. One a recent grad in Communications and the other a Sophomore studying... More

CU's campus is very nice to walk around on, as long as you don't mind almost getting hit constantly by bikes and skateboarders on the same paths. There are lots of places to explore, eat, and drink. In the summer when it's not crowded with students and the weather is sunny and warm, it is a heavenly place for a... More

Nice in any season, the lovely grounds and beautiful buildings are an inspiration. Our daughter graduated from here more then a few years ago. She got a top quality education and has gone on to become a very successful businesswoman. We love going back to stroll through the grounds and soak up the vibe.

CU Boulder is not only a wonderful campus that promotes intellect, outdoor fun, and inclusiveness but also a gorgeous attraction! Nestled under the Flatiron mountains, campus buildings are made of an orange-y stone that make for a lovely comparison to the reddish-brown mountains and greenery. Campus is landscaped well with many areas to sit and relax. Also, the art museum,... More

Took my BFF and her family to scout for their Senior son. We caught a show at Fiske, and walked about for a while. It was Football time, so saw the closed stadium and all the energy surrounding it. Very cool iconic campus.
