The campus and the surrounding hill area are amazing. Tons of biking and walking paths to easily get around and with a view of the flatirons looming in the background it doesn't get more picturesque on a college campus.

The campus is a walkers dream, all of the buildings are really cool and made from the same Colorado Red Stone. The school has a wide Variety of majors and Minors, with tons of history.

CU is known for its strong Engineering and Business Schools. The schools setting is spectacular as it sits at the base of the Flatiron mountains. Boulder offers great outdoor opportunities such as hiking, skiing, cycling, and world class climbing.
