Two places you must visit on campus-- the Norlin Library (the stacks in particular), and the Museum of Natural History. Norlin Library is a fantastic maze-like library I used to love to find nooks to study in when I attended. The stacks are especially fun.

I guess it's pretty nice to study in such school, nice neighborhood which provides many residence for fraternity/sorority house, really interesting names though. Parking is not that easy to find, since the roads are pretty narrow

The University is made up of many red stone buildings and with the flatirons and a background it is very impressive. The grounds are fun to walk around.

While not looking at the college specifically, we did drive and walk around the campus (so very pretty!) and attended a UC v. Washington football game (super fun!). Work a drive by just to see the distinctive architecture and mountains that surround it
