Had 5 kids graduate from here!

Best liberal education west of Harvard and east of Stanford. Hopefully it will turn your children into lifelong conservations, like mine!

This is a beautiful campus externally, huge but quite stunning. Not impressed by tour or the $20 each they charge you for walking around for prospective students. Even ivy leagues don't charge you for open house tours. Application fees are more expensive than most at $200, they also charge most for housing deposit. Watch out they charge by semester for...

I'm a bit biased as I graduated from here a few years ago, but I wanted to see the uprgrades and new buildings. Truly beautiful campus, worth a walk around. Lots of green space and the planetarium is worth a look. Go during a festival or event such as the International Festival!

Maybe I should not write a review on this or recommend it since I'm attending this school, but no! I can confidently write this review because I've been to many campuses across the United States, and without any bias, I can say that this is one of the finest most beautiful campuses in the US. The view of the Flatiron... More

We watched the fire works from here. Great Kids, every one was real nice. Lot of bike riders watch out for them.

Beautiful Campus. We have visited several time as son was trying to decide on a college this past year. Excellent engineering and physics programs. Much new construction but all in the same style - again one of the most beautiful campuses I have visited and being in the foothills of the Rockies doesn't hurt either.

I have visited the University several times, met hundreds of students attending in Boulder and walked through the grounds. Lovely setting, beautiful campus with outdoorsy feel. My daughter had bowling on the campus while in high school at Boulder High.

One of the most beautiful campuses in the U.S. The red rock used in the buildings are stunning and rival the view of the Flat Iron Mountains behind the school. There is a sense of serenity on the campus as you walk from one side to another. Our day was fun, informative and fulfilling. After attending Orientation Day, Parent;s Day... More

Beautiful campus!! We spent some time by the observatory and admired the exhibits outside which display the distance of the planets to the sun. The observatory was conducting presentations for summer youth groups, but we were able to see the lobby exhibits.
