Hand painting onto wallWondering if Creative Minds RAP is right for you --

here are some testimonials from our RAP alums:

"To me, Creative Minds RAP is a community where creative people come together to learn, have fun, and make a difference."

"The Creative Minds Residential Academic Program is a means through which students and faculty can build a strong community, learn through expression, and exercise their creative thinking skills to gain a better understanding of universal truths."

"Creative Minds RAP is an energetic environment built to foster creativity and challenge the inner artist. Our community is full of inspiring students and faculty who are passionate about what they do and have the unique opportunity to collaborate all under one roof!"

"CMRAP is the partnership of creativity and community where students are given the opportunity to go on an academic quest by experiencing college through the lens of being an artist in any capacity."

"Coming from a small town and a small graduating high school class, I was thrilled to be attending CU-Boulder but astonished at entering a freshman class of 5500 people. The Creative Minds RAP program eased this enormous transition. With professors who knew my name, small classes with people who lived in my dorm and field trips to film festivals and the art museum, I felt like part of a small community."

"It was through the Creative Minds RAP that I met most of my closest friends, some of the most wonderful, creative people I've ever met. In short, I'd recommend this program in a heartbeat—it was one of the best things I did in my time at CU-Boulder."
