I am in my third year at the University of Colorado - Boulder, majoring in Environmental Studies and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. CU has opened up countless opportunities for me, such as potential career paths, the chance to study in Australia, and the privilege to make life long friends. Moving away from home, and into life on the CU campus was the best decision I have ever made and I want to show you all that CU has to offer during your search for the right college.
During our tour I can take you to the buildings you will be studying in for your major and show you unique features about each of them, like the greenhouse on top of Ramaley Biology or the secret study room on top of the University Memorial Center. I can give you insight into which dorms are best, how to maximize the value of your meal plan, and how to overall excel in college life both academically and socially. If you have not been to Boulder before, I would be happy to show you around the town as well. From the vibrant college-town life on "The Hill", to the beautiful scenery of Chautauqua Park and the Flatirons, Boulder truly has something for everyone.
During my time in Boulder, I have been involved in a few extra-curricular activities. During my freshman year, I was part of the EcoRep program, which is a group dedicated to increasing sustainable practices around campus. Through the club, I was able to educate other students about the environment and develop my own projects to make the college more environmentally sustainable. Clubs and programs like this are a great way to get involved around campus and meet new friends. Additionally, I worked at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research as a laboratory assistant for the past two years. I was able to choose my own hours and have autonomy over the projects I worked on. Jobs around campus are an opportunity to gain insight into your field of interest and begin developing valuable experience. I also made sure I had time to relax and support the community by volunteering with a local goat farm called Mountain Flower Dairy. Petting baby goats every weekend is possibly the best way to de-stress during the semester, especially during finals and I recommend it to everyone.
If you would like to see what life is like as a Buff and learn some helpful college tips and tricks, then book a tour with me! I cannot wait to show you around and help you find your place here.
