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

The location of this beautiful campus could not be any better. The backdrop is the Rocky Mountains with the Flatirons prominently visible. Many students and tourists climb the steep rocks for a challenge. The architecture of the buildings is Tuscan style with new buildings maintaining the theme.

What a beautiful campus! The architecture, landscaping, and location are all very impressive. With the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop and Boulder Creek running thru the campus, CU is a nature lovers paradise.

I wanted to show my youngest daughter where I had done my graduate work over 40 years ago. She was thoroughly impressed with all aspects of CU . . . the architecture, the student body, and the location in the city of Boulder. Don't miss driving through this campus . . . even better to take a tour.
