Alumnus - Grad Year 1998

Overall Rating

As far as college experiences' are concerned, I can't imagine a better one that at CU. From academics, to sports, to social life to outdoor activities, Boulder has it all. It has a large college feel with top NCAA sports teams, a large campus and varied activities for all interests but it also has a small college field with specialized courses and colleges ( Business School ) and a close knit greek scene that makes it feel comfortable. I would recommend CU- Boulder to anyone and am a proud alumni.
