Great memories of this campus. Although there are many new buildings, the campus still gave me a goose-bump feeling of nostalgia

I really enjoyed walking around the CU campus and looking at the gorgeous buildings as well as the nearby mountain scenery. We stopped at the Museum of Natural History and looked at the dinosaur exhibits as well as their other displays. The Museum is free but please consider making a donation to support their work.

The CU campus in Boulder is one of the prettiest campuses we have visited. The building are a pretty consistent architectural style with all the requisite ivy covered walls and the landscaping to well done. And, the view out at the Flatirons is a nice bonus. Be sure to visit Ralphie before you leave.

Beautiful campus, worth a visit. Checkout the Norlin library as well as the physics building with its Foucault pendulum. The architecture and the setting make for a good visit

This is one of the most beautiful campuses in the US. The academic programs in some areas are excellent, in others very good. It is located in one of the most beautiful college towns in the US. Great place!

I've attended numerous events on campus. The buildings are nice but it's always a huge chore finding a place to park. Almost not worth attending events. Plan to find parking and you'll be fine.
