College Life Rating

I played club hockey and flag football, was part of the greek system and was an active supporter of the CU Buffs athletic programs. Additionally, I took advantage of hiking, biking, climbing and skiing throughout Colorado and even in my own backyard of Boulder. I felt safe at all hours of the day and night and Boulder is a strong community outsideof the school and felt we were big parts of the overall Boulder community.
