What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am satisfied with my college experience so far. I have successfully navigated my first semester and amassed enough credits to be counted as a sophomore. I think that the classes are really good, I've learned a lot, but I attribute most of that to my study habits. In order to do well here, you have to want success. You can't go to parties all the time and expect that you'll breeze through finals. The food at Mines Market is actually really good, but there are plenty of other opportunities on campus for when you eventually get sick of it. Housing could be better, the rooms are nice, but be prepared to be tripled due to lack of space. Overall, my attitude towards Colorado School of Mines is very positive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like Colorado School of Mines. I'm currently a senior there and so far, I made a lot of life long friends who went through the same hardships as I did. It is a very challenging school but as long as you work hard and get through, it will feel absolutely amazing at the end.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love being there. The on campus food is very good, but it can get repetitive especially in the middle of the semester. I live in the Traditional Halls, so it is a little cramped, but there are huge study areas in each of the dorm buildings. I feel so safe on campus that I'll run/walk across it at 10pm sometimes and leave my door unlocked. However, the school is extremely rigorous and not for those who can't handle a challenge.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my first week at Colorado School of Mines, I knew this was the right place for me. With a solid reputation for good teaching, small class sizes, and a tight knit community, I found all of those traits to be true right off the bat. As Mines students, we cannot be successful without collaborating with other students and that is what makes our student body so unique. Every student supports one another as we each have a mutual goal of being successful and graduating from Mines. Besides the academic benefits, the location of Golden, CO has been a great way to access the mountains, whether it be skiing, biking, running, or hiking. Mines' Outdoor Recreation Center, along with the multitude of outdoor focused clubs makes easy to get outside and meet other people with similar passions. I am excited for the rest of my schooling here and for all of the opportunities to come!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like it. There are people who will help in the school. CASA and professors and other students are able to help me succeed college. The food isn't that bad though over time you may get sick of it. It's a very positive community in which many people you meet are kind. Colorado School of Mines is truly a place for people interested in engineering as there are so many people in various engineering fields. Mines is a beautiful place right next to the mountains which I hiked with some of my friends. It has a very good environment and community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mines is the school to make you into a highly capable engineer or scientist if you are willing to work for it. In high school, I breezed through classes and got great grades with no effort. Mines is significantly more difficult than that, but I truly believe it is worth it. I do homework or study about 15 to 20 hours a week, but none of it is busy work. I am constantly learning and feeling myself become a better problem solver. It is difficult, but there is a great community around you to help at every step along the way. Everyone is going through the same challenging courses and they will always be willing to help you out. If you are looking to be an engineer, this is a great school to consider. The community and faculty are dedicated to your education at a school this small, and I feel it is a very good investment. Sadly, the food is pretty terrible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an amazing school with a beautiful, small campus. The facilities are nice, and most are new or have been renovated. The main gym is very nice, with a fantastic pool! The dorm rooms are alright, but they have a great community. If you have a chance, I would recommend going on a tour, I did one that was all day and we would be led around to different parts in buildings that would have what you are interested in (chemistry, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, etc).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have loved Mines since the minute I got here. Even though we don't have a big sports culture, we have a hundred things to fill it's place. If you're not studying - which I promise there are times when you're not studying, even though sometimes that seems like a joke - you're walking by the creek, hiking up the nearby mountains, or going to get pizza at Woody's. Sure, we're a bunch of engineers. Sure, you're as likely to talk about your homework over the weekend as the next big party, but that's what I love. It's a huge campus full of geeks making their way through this challenging university so that they can achieve their big dreams.
