What is not to love about this university, one of the top 10 academic colleges, beautiful campus withe the iconic Flatirons view. Bike,ski,and hike right from your dorm. Top rated professors. And the best college mascot anywhere-Ralphie!

What a beautiful campus! This rivals Penn State in every way. Big beautiful buildings; well manicured and thoughtfully planned. Nice wide walkways and bike paths. The gym is extra special. Rock climbing wall is very cool and basketball courts look out onto the Rocky Mountains!!!...More
