The Campus Life

The campus of CU Boulder is breath takingly beautiful, with views of the Rocky Mountains in every location. The buildings are constructed to fit in with the environment, and are not too tall to block your view of nature. The community living on and around campus are very eco-friendly. Wherever you go, inside or out, there will be trash cans labeled with what is acceptable to put in. The campus is maintained very well and the dorms are perfect for an incoming freshman. When walking around campus, watch where you are walking. Students like to ride their bikes to class which causes some chaos. There are clearly marked pathways for people walking and biking.

Students and Community

The students that attend come from all over the world. Each person you meet, student or staff, will be as unique as the next one. You never know who you are going to meet in class and on campus. People are very friendly and will make it a priority to say hi. The businesses surrounding the campus are mainly small business that were made for Boulder CO. Boulder CO is a very active community. When students are not in class or studying they will be up on the mountain skiing, or hiking the amazing trails offered. There are over 100 clubs and activities for the students to participate and get to know their classmates.
