地理位置
Boulder, Colorado, is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Biking, hiking, climbing, and bouldering are common recreational activities in the foothills just outside of town, and there are nearby fishing and kayaking spots as well. In the winter, though, skiing and snowboarding are where it’s at. Many of the best ski resorts in Colorado can be reached from Boulder in about 30 minutes to an hour by car, and both the campus and the town will often empty out into the mountains during winter weekends. Boulder Freeride is the largest student group at CU, and it organizes skiing/snowboarding trips and parties throughout the ski season. Boulder (roughly 100,000 residents) is very much a college town, and it is also a liberal community in an otherwise largely conservative state. CU’s campus is just a mile or so from Pearl Street Mall, the main thoroughfare of Boulder, which offers a number of bars, cafés, performance venues, shops, and restaurants. CU spirit can be felt all around Boulder, and the university is a major part of its economic life, just as Boulder is a big part of CU’s cultural life. “Boulder is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains. While walking on campus, students can gaze upon the Flatiron rock formations shooting upwards. Any and all outdoor recreational activities are available to students in the surrounding area of Boulder such as biking, climbing, skiing and hiking. There are activities for all levels of recreation too, from relaxing strolls to grueling climbs. Boulder’s surrounding area offers excellent opportunities to experience nature at only a stone’s throw away! Boulder offers excellent access to the outdoors. Chetaqua Park in West Boulder is a gorgeous area with numerous hiking trails of varying difficulty. Students as well as locals often visit Chetaqua to enjoy a nice walk at the foot of the Flatiron rock formations towering just above. Rock climbing is also very popular in Boulder and there is no better place for indoor rock climbing than The Spot Bouldering Gym. Climbers from all around the US and the world come to climb at the Spot, like renowned rock climber Chris Sharma. The Spot, while offering fun climbing, also holds events such as the 2008 National Climbing Championship, which are always a fun time to gather and watch incredibly skilled climbers. The Hill in Boulder is another student hot spot where you can grab some food, sit and have a drink, and even see a concert. The Hill has a ton of restaurants like Thunderbirds and Half-Fast where you can get a variety of delicious sandwiches. The Fox Concert Hall is also located on the Hill and has performances every night of the week. The Fox plays host to local bands such as Rose Hill Drive, who always put on a great show, and to famous bands like Dave Mathews. The Hill also has a lively night scene, with The Skink and The Pit offering after-hours entertainment and drinks. The Pearl Street Mall is Boulder’s main downtown area and offers numerous opportunities to relax, shop, sit down to a nice meal, or to just walk around and enjoy the day. Pearl Street has shops of every kind—you can buy clothes, shoes, or stop into the candy shop for something sweet. Food options on Pearl Street are also abundant, providing restaurants like Illegal Pete’s for a quick burrito or something nicer like Cheese Cake Factory, a favorite place for students to bring their parents when in town. Students often schedule study sessions with friends at one of the many café’s on Pearl Street, such as The Trident Café. Pearl Street is also the center for nightlife in Boulder, as it contains a great number of bars only a short walk from one another.” The most notable off-campus hangout would most definitely have to be Half Fast. It is located on The Hill and offers a ton of subs and specialty alcohol drinks. It is frequented at all hours and is a popular hangout for students. Half Fast has big screen TVs to watch sporting events, and an outdoor eating area for warm days. Café Play is a relatively new coffee shop located n the hill where students can study while enjoying coffee and homemade chili. There is a big screen television set up with a Wi game system for students trying to escape writing their papers or studying for their midterms. The upstairs area also has comfy couches and free wireless connection. Bacaro, located on Pearl Street, is a fantastic hangout for students 21 and up. There are two bars and an outside and inside dance floor. Talented DJ’s showcase their talent on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Students who do not care to drink will also enjoy the exciting and fun atmosphere.

CU-Boulder’s campus has got to be one of the most beautiful in the country. Tucked up against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains—with the spectacular Flatirons as its western backdrop—the campus is a spacious series of grassy fields and red-tiled sandstone buildings in the style of northern Italy. There are many trees and rolling hills (as well as streams), and students frequently head to Farrand Field or other quads to study, play sports, and take advantage of the fresh mountain air. Notable buildings on campus include the University Memorial Center (UMC), Mary Rippon Theatre, Norlin Library, and Macky Auditorium. The Buff Bus is a student shuttle that runs between off-campus housing and the main campus. The buses have two routes through campus and run from 7:00am to midnight on weekdays, until 2:55am on Fridays, and until 3:00am on Saturdays. Boulder, Colorado is a beautiful town, and the CU campus, on a warm sunny day is absolutely breathtaking. Some of the most popular hangouts on campus on these days are Farrand Field, the Sewall quad, and Norlin Quad. Farrand Field offers a lot of space to lounge in the sun or to kick a soccer ball around between classes. On the Sewall quad, nicknamed Sewall Beach, you can always find students in their bathing suits soaking up the sun on a nice sunny day. Norlin Quad, centrally located on campus, is also a very popular place to relax, read, chat with friends, or play with your dog in your off time between classes. Another popular location to hang out is at Norlin Library. Norlin Library offers opportunities to study, do research, or to meet with your friends. Students can always find a quiet place to sit and read in peace in the Library, a luxury often not found in the dorms or at home for most students. Additionally, the Hot Spot in Norlin Library is an area with a small convenience store and coffee shop as well as big tables and chairs where students can sit and talk about class or anything else. Professors and teaching assistants often hold their office hours at the Hot Spot. The best on-campus hang out at CU is the University Memorial Center, or the UMC. It offers food, entertainment, shops, and services. There is the Alfred Packer Grill, with meal options ranging from comfort foods to snacks to breakfast items. Baby Doe’s is a one-stop shop for corner-store items such as toothpaste or sports drinks. There are also a variety of fast food restaurants like Domino’s, EC Hot Dogs, Jamba Juice, Subway, and Wok and Roll. Entertainment at the UMC includes the Connection, where you can bowl and play pool, and the Art Gallery, which presents a variety of artwork from local, national, and international artists. Shops and services at the UMC range from the CU Book Store, where CU memorabilia and school supplies are sold, to the Ink Spot, where you can print off homework and make large numbers of copies. Another great on-campus hangout is Kay’s Café, located in the brand new Atlas Building. This place offers coffee and specialty drinks from early morning to evening and is a great place to hang out with friends or do homework. It is also centrally located on campus and makes for a great meeting place. Farrand Field is probably the most ideal on-campus hangout CU has to offer. Spring through fall, it is packed with students sunbathing and engaging in outdoor activities. Several concerts take place on the field as well and attract students not only from the dorms but from the surrounding area as well. During the winter, especially on nice days, students partake in activities such as football, Frisbee and even snowman-building.

CU-Boulder has 21 residence halls built in the Italian Renaissance style. They provide space for approximately 5,900 students. All 21 halls are coed, though in some cases men and women live on separate floors. The gender layout is determined based on bathroom accommodations. Farrand and Sewall Halls are reserved for underclassmen, whereas Reed Hall is generally open to non-freshman or graduate students only. One of the most popular dorms on campus is Farrand. It is located in the center of campus and has easy access to all classes. Farrand is also located just across from Farrand Field, which is a great space for relaxing in the sun or playing Frisbee or soccer. Farrand also has a great cafeteria with virtually every choice of food you could want. Sewall Hall is also another popular dorm on campus. Sewall’s location is particularly advantageous because it is located directly next to the CU Recreation Center and just across the quad from Norlin Library. Sewall’s cafeteria is well known on campus for its breakfasts. Every day, Sewall offers custom omelets as well as waffles and breakfast meats. Williams Village, the biggest dorm on campus, is actually located about three blocks off campus. Adoringly called “Will Vill,” this high-rise features apartment-like units. Though somewhat removed from the campus community, the students living in Will Vill form a tight-knit community. Dorm living at CU can be considered the ultimate college experience. Whether you have one or four roommates, CU on-campus living is catered for all interested students. The halls incorporate the excitement and energy of a large university but have the support network usually found at a small college. There are a variety of floor plans, social activities and academic services to promote all students. One of the major dorm halls on campus that is well known by all students is Farrand. It is centrally located in the middle of the campus next to beautiful Farrand Field, Leads School of Business and the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The primary room types are doubles with community baths. Farrand residents must participate in its popular residential academic programs, which entail taking one or two selected courses right in your hall. The Ally@Farrand has freshly made food in a food court environment. It also features an Alley Express grab-n-go which allows students to take lunch and dinner items with them rather than eating in the actual dining facility. Another large and well known residential hall is Williams Village. It contains 1,400 residents in four towers: Darley North, Darley South, Stearns East, and Stearns West. Darley South is a substance-free hall. Right next to the towers is Darley Commons, which contains a dining hall and is the center of social activities. It is located slightly off campus at the intersection of baseline and 30th Street. Williams Village has the greatest diversity of rooms available, including special amenities such as air conditioning and tennis courts, and it is in close proximity to the Student Center annex. Participation in the Chancellor’s Leadership Residential Academic Program is mandatory for all residents who select and are assigned to the program. This program offers courses that meet core requirements and a certificate in the Study and Practice of Leadership. The Kittredge community houses 1,100 residents in four residence halls: Arnett, Buckingham, Kittredge West, and Smith. It is located on the southeast edge of campus next to the Coors Event Center where men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball games are held. There is a commons building that houses the Hardrive Café, a cyber café where students meet friends and enjoy great food. There are 19 ceiling-mounted televisions, wired and wireless computer access for laptops, and an amazing fireplace for those cold winter days. The rooms are primarily doubles with community baths.

体育培养
The Buffaloes compete at the varsity level in NCAA Division I sports. CU is part of the Big 12 Conference, and they have especially large rivalries with other Big 12 schools, as well as with the Air Force Academy and Colorado State. The Buffs have won national championships in skiing, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, and football. They have also won conference championships in several sports. In addition to varsity sports, there are many club and intramural sports at CU. Some of these club sports, such as cycling and triathlon, have won national championships. The most popular team by far is the CU Football Team. Lovingly called the Buffs, game day is always a lot of fun on and around campus. It is common among most students to attend one of the many pre-game parties followed by the communal pilgrimage to Folsom Field. The most exciting game is against our biggest rivals CSU. This game is held at Mile High Stadium in Denver and is definitely an event to look forward to.” CU also has a nationally-competitive spirit program, which consists of three teams—two Cheerleading squads, and the CU Express Dance Team. In 2007, the cheerleading squad finished sixth at NCA Nationals in Daytona Beach. The official school colors are silver and gold—not the commonly seen black and gold of the Buff’s uniform. Silver and gold were chosen to represent the state's mineral wealth, but the colors did not look good together, so black was substituted for silver. CU’s three official fight songs are "Glory Colorado," "Go Colorado," and "Fight CU."
