Well we were on yet another tour. Overall it was good but it was longer than most. The campus is big so don't expect to see everything.

The most beautiful college campus in America is not an overstatement. All the buildings have historical designation. Red tile roof , red sand stone and copper gutters. Beautiful. Riding a bike around campus is a real joy. Boulder is a very bike friendly town and so is the campus at CU. Every time I go I find a new beautiful... More

Excellent School academically, location and activities. My daughter enjoyed the greek life and my son enjoyed playing on a club team. They both have made life-long friends. My daughter is attending Dental school, so learned a lot in the IPhy program. They both studied abroad which is strongly supported by the University.

It is so beautiful, enchanting. The structure is with red bricks, like old but very gorgeus. It is really big, has lots of programs, and the city has young population and options for apartments and trasporatiob. I really am shocked with such a beautiful place.

My daughter just graduated from UC Boulder. Lots of degree programs. Great housing with updates to older dorms going on now. Very safe campus with lots of campus police and call boxes all over campus if you have an issue. Great pricing if your instate and a bit costly if your out of state but worth the cost.

Good place to visit, nice scenic campus that is accessible by bike and walking even. However we went in winter during the holidays so it was pretty quiet and there wasn't much to do

Visited many times but never thought to write a review. My daughter graduated from here so there are many memories. The campus is beautiful to stroll through even without having a connection to the school. As others have said it has changed over the years but still retains its title to one of the most beautiful campuses in the US.
