The school is incredibly strict about parking. They give you parking tickets for things that most cops would not give you tickets for. Lots of other parking problems. Most teachers do not know how to teach classes they assume you have know the material like they have for 30 years. NO school activities besides movies and a few comedians, each semester. Course work is excessive in many classes and a lot of the course work is up to you to learn because it is not taught in classes. The city of Golden shuts down around 8 or 9pm every night, so there is nothing to do unless you drive to Denver or Boulder. In summary this school is not the best school to go to in the state of Colorado. Job hiring might be a little higher here than a few other schools, but its not worth giving up so much for a terrible school experience. The cafeteria food is extremely bad as well, get a gift card to safeway and eat there as much as possible. The school has a general attitude that they can treat their students like crap as long as they treat incoming students nice their school will continue to run. That is sort of the feeling I have gotten from this school over the past three years here.
