Health & Safety:
There is a lot of homeless people in the Boulder community but you're generally okay. Just don't walk alone at night especially if you're a girl. CU does offer the night ride which is paid for by your tuition which picks you up anywhere in Boulder and will take you back to your dorm.

I brought my own computer, but there are many labs on campus. Even though there's a lot of labs though, they do fill up quickly especially during crunch times.

You get a bus pass at the beginning of the year and its great. Theres buses that go pretty much everywhere you just need to find the routes and schedule. The bus to the airport is also very convenient because it picks up basically on campus and goes straight there and is free with your bus pass.

Most students on this campus are from CA or CO. They are definitely the majority. Most the students are also white, there isn't very much diversity when it comes to race except for the handful of international students.

If you drink then you drink. If you do drugs then you do drugs. Nobody pressures you to do anything. Though the majority of the school partakes in these activities, if you don't want to then you don't have to. If you drink or smoke in the dorms then you just have to be smart about it, otherwise RA's will come after you.

I currently live in Will Vill North and I love it. Sure its off campus and I need to take the bus every morning but it isn't all that bad. I like to actually be able to come home at the end of the day. Will Vill is also a really great community with events going on all the time.

I'm an out of state student so I need all the aid I can get but unfortunately I wasn't able to receive very much.

During the summer months it gets pretty warm and it sucks if you're in a dorm without A/C. On the flip side though it starts to get cold in November and you'll definitely bundle up and layer to go out.

I've really enjoyed my time at CU. Its a great big school, with awesome research, great faculty, and lots to do on and off campus.

There's a lot of places up on the hill or pearl street. There's a lot of local spots as well as chain restaurants, the only problem is when it comes to late time eating. Not very many places are open after 12 or they turn into 21+ bars.

Currently, the main rec center is being renovated so it is a little hard to navigate but it's coming along well. There is also a smaller gym in will vill that has all the essentials.

The dorms are slowly being renovated. Will Vill North, Kitt Central, and Baker are a few that are brand new and are really nice on the inside.

There aren't very many dining halls on campus. There is about 3 dining halls, 2 grab and gos, 2 marketplaces, and the weather tech. Although there aren't very many, the C4C dining hall is the biggest and has the most options with different cuisines in each corner. In will vill however there is 1 dining hall, 1 grab and go, and 1 marketplace.

Boulder is a great town if you love the outdoors. Hiking, snowboarding, skiing, biking. Basically if you enjoy being outside then this is a great city for you. Otherwise, Denver isn't too far out.

Boulder Police and RA's are everywhere but as long as you aren't crazy drunk or extremely obnoxious they'll let you slide. They're really there for safety reasons, not so much to bust people.

I haven't really noticed the police or anyone.

Snow can be an issue when it's heavy and lasts all week.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T02:34:34Z
So far good but study a lot .
College Freshman 2013-12-04T02:32:30Z
Underage for bars but good parties or patio bands.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T02:29:56Z
Would like to opt out of dorms as a requirement ..
College Freshman 2013-12-04T02:29:12Z
Heard they are good, but I'm just starting college so we shall see.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T02:27:21Z
I like seeing the international diversity here.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T02:26:17Z
One main hall that is good..the others or just okay but not really health. More like fast food.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T02:24:41Z
Many options close to the dorms.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
