The University of Colorado at Boulder's location next to the Rocky Mountains offers easy access to hiking, biking, skiing, camping, and other recreational activities. Whether it's going to a concert at the historic Fox Theatre on University Hill, cycling the creek path or strolling the Pearl Street Mall, Boulder has something for everyone.

Boulder and the surrounding area is also home to a wide range of museums, parks, and zoos, where you can volunteer or intern to complement the Museum and Field Studies experience. Some students also obtain jobs in the community.
