CU is known for its strong Engineering and Business Schools. The schools setting is spectacular as it sits at the base of the Flatiron mountains. Boulder offers great outdoor opportunities such as hiking, skiing, cycling, and world class climbing.

We wandered around the campus after being told by pretty much every local we spoke to told us to go! The campus grounds are beautiful as are the buildings. The football ground is HUGE! and definitely a must see if you visit Boulder!
