CU Boulder is not only a wonderful campus that promotes intellect, outdoor fun, and inclusiveness but also a gorgeous attraction! Nestled under the Flatiron mountains, campus buildings are made of an orange-y stone that make for a lovely comparison to the reddish-brown mountains and greenery. Campus is landscaped well with many areas to sit and relax. Also, the art museum,... More

Took my BFF and her family to scout for their Senior son. We caught a show at Fiske, and walked about for a while. It was Football time, so saw the closed stadium and all the energy surrounding it. Very cool iconic campus.

All ages will enjoy walking through the campus, attending sporting events or just having a picnic on a lawn and watch the students walk by.

Worth checking out if your child is going to college soon. Beautiful campus. Large though, so this is a school for a student who wants a large population and campus. If I were in school again, I would want to go here.

If you're in Boulder for a few days, make sure to take a walk around campus and feel the charming atmosphere of student life here. The architecture is gorgeous and you have a fantastic view of the mountains from almost all areas. Old Main is particularly recommended and there is a decent selection of restaurants on campus open to all.... More

Lovely campus with picturesque views of trees, mountains, rivers, bridges, and beautiful architecture. The Student Recreation Center was a highlight. Everything from ice skating to climbing walls to basketball courts with floor to ceiling windows. Wow! Makes me want to enroll.

Our son recently toured the beautiful campus at the University of Colorado at Boulder as a prospective student. If you believe in God and conservative values, avoid this school at all cost. During the tour, a flyer was posted on one of the college dorm halls advertising a "queer sex" seminar with dates and times posted for students to attend.... More

I was here for a month as a visiting scholar. The campus is huge and very attractive. I swam regularly in one of the three pools in the Rec Center. It cost me $7 each time I swam, which is not cheap, but it was very nice. Hardly anyone else in the pool, and lap swim is all day. We... More

I had no real expectations for the UC Boulder campus - so I was blown away by the consistently high quality of the architecture. A generous helping of both old and new, woven together seamlessly. I am an architect, and don't easily gush, but this campus was a real joy - get out of the car and walk around!

Natural History and Art Museums. Lots of music programs especially in the fall through spring. Symphony plays in Macky Hall. Shakespeare festival in outdoor Mary Rippon Theater is a big draw in the summer. Not to be missed.
