Pretty campus

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.

We visited the campus with our high school son and daughter on a Monday afternoon. The campus was quiet and the grounds and buildings are lovely. The museum was fun and interesting, and the bookstore in the UMC had a good selection of Buffs paraphernalia for souvenirs.

My Alma Mater! It has a beautiful campus, with lots of nice walks in the area. Go from here to the Pearl Street Mall and people watch on a beautiful evening!

I was there on a Sunday when school was out, and enjoyed wandering around. Parking was easy. This would be very different when the 20,000 students are there. Wonderful faux stone construction throughout the campus. Only reason I didn't rate 5 is in places it's a maze.

The building are beautiful … Lyons red rock, and the campus is beautiful and sprawling. Limited parking. The students and faculty are friendly and everyone is very helpful.

We like to look at campuses across the country when we travel. This is certainly a nice one. Well laid out, consistent architecture and nice walking. UC Bookstore did not carry any women's socks :(
