I like that it is a public university that offers so many programs which gives you a chance to open so many doors. I have met professors that I didn't like very much as well as professors that made me want to go to class and learn. Joining clubs and study groups was one of my best decisions here since I was able to meet many different kinds of people, all of which I have things in common. It is a beautiful campus and a relatively good college town where most things are easily accessible, so that's a plus.
Knowing what needs you need, whether that is mentally, physically, socially, or academically, will make thriving in this environment so much easier; especially if you are a POC since CU Boulder is a predominantly white institution.
I absolutely loved CU Boulder! The professors are great, student life is unmatched, and the location is beautiful. There are so many things to do from skiing, hiking, meeting new people, yoga, and more.
The cost of living is going way up
I like the community within the University of Colorado Boulder. The education system is great and there is a lot to choose from. Overall this is an amazing school to attend.
I personally do not like the food. There is an unlimited variety of food. However, I don't like most of the meals and flavors.
I really liked the networking opportunities.
The social greek party life is heavy.
It is an incredibly challenging program, but there is lots of support and the faculty wants you to succeed. The campus is also large enough to have many different sections and styles, as well as plenty of quiet corners to relax, but still small enough to navigate quickly.
there are a lot of students and limited class size which makes class scheduling hard as a freshman
CU Boulder was an unusual experience for me, especially coming from a background centered on independent learning. I felt that much of my time at CU Boulder, especially concerning assignments could have been condensed into a shorter period of time. Most of my courses at CU were taught by graduate students, even upper-division courses typically had graduate students taking more of a lead. Overall, I made some great friends, but for the most part, my teachers were either great or lacked any sort of interest in the students or course.
If you are looking for a school centered on classes taught by tenured faculty or professors, this is not the school for you. Much of the time in courses lacked attention to detail and could've been condensed into more independent study hours for the students.
