Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2007

Overall, I felt it was overpriced and often they were more interested in the money than the long term prosperity of the students. I enjoyed the learning, but am finding that often that does not translate to higher incomes and that more thought and data should be given to the students on viability of success after graduation.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

College is a great experience if you are looking to move in to a professional industry, such as finance, law, medicine, or engineering. Other than those industries, go to vocational/technical schools to learn trades and/or programming. We need skilled workers, not history or communications majors.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

I loved the University of Colorado, Boulder. However, my advise to incoming students would be to make sure that you like what you are studying before fully committing to that major. Unfortunately, I jumped into my major before I really thought out what I wanted to do with my professional career

College is what you make of it. The University of Colorado in Boulder has great faculty and great opportunities, and students willing to work hard and take advantage of those opportunities can go far. It has a bit of a party school reputation, but there are a lot of hardworking, diligent students there too. The residential academic programs are amazing! Freshman can take take classes in small groups right in their dormitory rather than taking the same classes in huge, impersonal lecture halls, and I highly recommend taking advantage of this option.

I love CU Boulder. The campus is right under the foot of the mountain and it is a very big campus for you to enjoy. The view is beautiful and all the buildings are historic.
