Strong academics paired with many opportunities to get involved with research and obtain work experience make CU—Boulder appealing. One sophomore tells us, “CU does a fantastic job of keeping students up-to-date on the goings-on and important news around school, town, and the world.” Another current student sums it up perfectly, explaining that CU—Boulder has “a sense of vitality and curiosity that fills the campus, and yet it’s comfortable and relaxed.”
CU—Boulder offers an excellent liberal arts edCUation, and the social life is diverse enough so that everyone is able to find a niche that suits their interests. Students point out, “CU has some of the best research facilities in the world.” When asked about staff, students say, “Most professors are here for research but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing because many incorporate and relate their fascinating work experience with lecture.” Another student tells us, “My professors represent a wide range of ages, nationalities, and genders. Professors are helpful and entertaining, and they have real-world experience.” Students seem satisfied with the academics overall. A member of the junior class tells us, “I have very involved professors who have helped me better my overall academic experience by providing me the possibilities to learn beyond the classroom.” Another junior adds, “Professors are usually knowledgeable, and a few are exceptional. Academic experience has transferred very well to internships that I found while attending a university sponsored career fair.”
