If you find yourself in Boulder, take some time to walk around campus. The buildings are beautiful and there are little hidden lakes on campus.

Located towards the eastern end of the CU Boulder campus is the sizeable C4C student services building, with a superb food-court-style dining hall on almost the entire first floor. Mind you, this is "not your typical school cafeteria." The Persian food station is a standout...More
