I had no idea what to expect upon arriving at CU. But I can say this. Honestly, I couldn't possibly imagine a more amazing place. Everyone you meet is interesting, brilliant, and passionate about something or other in life. While reading the required texts by the stars in each field, every so often you'll realize the author has some connection to this school. The diversity is amazing as well; on my floor alone (about 20 people) there are at least 10 countries represented, straight, gay, black, white, asian, and latino…we cover them all. And so does the entire university. The campus is beautiful; it's in an amazing city that can be pretty intimidating, but if you don't feel like walking more than a block away because the city scares you, within ONE block of the campus there's a supermarket, Starbucks, pizza place, deli, bar, sushi place, asian supermarket, noodle shack, supply store, ice cream store, liquor store, italian restaurant, movie rental/store, music store…just apply already, it rocks.
