"I knew CU-Boulder would provide the academic environment I wanted, but I had no idea about all the other amazing things that Colorado had to offer. Looking back the question should not have been why choose CU-Boulder but WHY NOT? The weather alone in Colorado is untouchable. Even being a graduate student I have enjoyed a lifestyle that most would envy. I bike to work every day, work for a brilliant professor, interact with amazing friends and have a view of the mountains before I fall asleep."
