“What's Better than Boulder?”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

Any one who had studied here will never find an answer! Many who studied here stay here! There are surely lots of young people who party hard in any university but there's also the serious side. The buildings are iconic and become imprinted in the mind. The grounds are beautifully kept and students seem proud of the place. A summertime conference years ago had us hoping sons would decide to study here. Such was the case and now we visit them as graduates who never left! A stroll though the grounds is always heartening to be amongst the 'minds' of tomorrow.

“Stunning Campus! Worth the walk, hike!”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Gorgeous Campus with stunning buildings! We were at Harvard University recently and U of Colorado has a FAR NICER Campus hands down. I can't speak for the education you get but it sure looks like a pleasant place to spend 4 years.

Worth the effort to walk the campus if you're from out of town. It's a huge campus though so keep that in mind. Boulder looks like a nice town too with plenty of options for food, drink and fun. Not a hard sell for sure!

“Great bowling alley”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

We took a 6-year-old grandson son here for a few bowling games. They are completely set up for children with gutter guards and small-size shoes. It's a friendly environment and a great way to spend a few hours on a cold and rainy afternoon.

“AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS!!!”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

What an amazingly beautiful campus. You just won't believe that this is a public school. They are continually updating and building newer cutting edge facilities and curriculum. It's definitely worth a look!

“Beautiful campus!”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

The first view of Boulder and the University of Colorado from US 36 are amazing! A walk around this scenic campus is even better. Very cool having the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop.
