Did a college visit summer 2018 with my twin boys. The campus is beautiful and the immediate area around it is fantastic. No students there yet, but the location made a major impression on 2 potential applicants!
I went to CU for grad school and CSU (Fort Collins) for undergrad. The difference between them is night and day. Seriously - take a day and tour each campus. I'll be amazed if CSU doesn't feel more welcoming, vital, and interesting to you (and/or your children). Some good things happen at CU academically, but they happen in spite of the administration and the toxic environment on campus, not because of it. Avoid.
We visited campus to attend an event at the Planetarium, as well as the Observatory. We had time to kill while waiting for the Planetarium to open so we rented bikes from a nearby kiosk and rode around campus. The campus is extremely clean and inviting, and is very bike friendly! It sits at the base of the mountain, so it is very picturesque.
The school is substantially more concerned with promoting false political propaganda than actually educating students. Save your money and put it towards an education you can use
Visited the Boulder Campus for an ASU vs Colorado football game. Colorado prevailed 😪. However we still enjoyed our overall experience as the stadium staff was very welcoming & the Colorado fans were gracious in their team’s victory. Hence, I will be rooting for the Buffaloes to have success thru the remainder of their 2018 season. And I look forward to them visiting us in Tempe in 2019 - and I will be rooting for our Sun Devils to improve & be victorious on our home field. “Forks up” 🌵 !!
