Amazing campus! Truly informed and energetic students gave the tour. The town of Boulder is beautiful and Pearl Street is a gem! Make sure you drive around the residential streets and see the variety of architecture! City planning never let urban sprawl take over - therefore lots are small and a quant small town feel remains. Take a walk along... More

How do you rate a university? This is a beautiful campus. Be warned, parking is scarce. It's great to walk about. For students, it can be a very serious place indeed, with brilliant faculty and challenging courses. For others, it provides the same temptations as any university

The campus as others have pointed out is beautiful with great views of the nearby Flatiron Mountains. In addition, the campus has a very nice art museum and natural history museum both of which are free. The latter is also very good for children with special exhibits for them to enjoy and learn from. There are often evening concerts, a... More

The CU campus is probably one of the most beautifully located schools in the US. The campus is located at the foothill of the Flatiron Rocky Mountains. The campus buildings blend in so great to the environment, all with the Spanish tile roofs. The buildings overall are very well kept and the school is continually renovating and building new facilities.... More

Big, nice campus. I checked out Folsom Field and the surrounding buildings first and they were very nice and clean. Huge campus, you probably can't see it all in one day.

The CU campus is a gorgeous red stone campus that is a beautiful place to walk. It is close to the flatirons with beautiful views. There are on campus museums, activity centers, places to dine and some fun tours (Banjo Billies) that give insight to some of the famous former students now celebrities and interesting stories about the campus.

Can't say enough about the beauty, the friendly atmosphere, and oh! those mountains! The maps are missing the scale -- it takes 20 - 30 minutes to walk across a swath of campus. Finding the buildings you want can be a challenge since they are not named by function. No "student center" or similarly named building here! The PDF map... More
