Rode around campus during a bike tour. Though we didn’t go inside at all, the campus was interesting and beautiful. I’m glad we had someone giving us a lot of the fun facts as we rode around!

Our son is a student at CU Boulder and we couldn't be more happy with his decision to be a buff. A fantastic academic institution with a diverse student population and (in my opinion) the prettiest campus in the world. Absolutely love the place!
Surrounded by mountains and greenery, an awesome place to get your degree from!! Wintery days are gloomy but the mountains compensate for those once snow starts. The temp in peak winter (Feb-March) drops to as low as -25 degree C (-13 F). The spring brings a new life to the place and the beauty gets enhanced by blooming flowers all around.
