there are some irritating, pseudo-hippie rich kids who think
think highly of their entitlement. However, CU is a large
school and I am being honest when I say you
can find your niche. there are plenty of being who
think uggs and coach shit are passe. and if you're
into greek life, it's there. but a lot of people
think it's lame. the parties are better on the hill
anyway (where a lot of student housing is).
partying mindset is prevalent and most people ski, but I
am having a kickass time practicing moderation and merely looking
at the mountains.
Academically, you get what you put
in. There is the potential to get a really great
education. Just work hard, engage with the material, make it
your priority. Or don't do shit, and depending on your
major, you will probably turn out alright.
I have really liked my professors and material. The students
in my classes vary, but overall most seem fairly apathetic.
If you aren't on that wavelength, you may have to
seek out like-minded students, but it's really not a big
deal. The school is big.
Boulder is tight. beautiful. i'm
always in a good mood when i wander around.
out of state is a little absurd. unless your family
can afford it. then all power to you.
school, some shitty kids, but generally pretty decent. academics have
endless potential. it's all about what you want.
