|killclimbz||Get over the Ft Snort vs the Peoples Republic of Boulder thing. For some programs CSU would be the better choice and others CU stands out. From a shredder perspective, CU is pretty much a better choice that Fort Collins. Fort Snort is not a great choice for shredding. Unless you are picking between CSU and UNC for schools...|

I go to CU Boulder (also called UCB, but no one does this)
It's a fun place. There are some douche bags and hypocrites (as mentioned earlier), but there are some decent people. The Hill where most kids go or Pearl Street if hitting the bars.
Eldora is ~ 45 minutes away and the pass is stupidly cheap for students (I paid $79 for mine). The snowboard club (Boulder Freeride) make a lot of trips with pretty decent pricing.
Definitely try to get in dorms first year. Depending on your RA, you might be able to get away with a lot more stuff. Personally, my RA was a fucking bitch.
Campus police (black cars) are huge assholes. Often I'd wake up in middle of the night and see them walking around the hallways with billy clubs sniffing for pot. If you get a knock on your door and it's campus police *don't* let them in (in my dorm, instead of knocking we'd tap the door knob to let each other know it wasn't security. Dumb but it worked). Once, I got a knock on the door and the security stated that they "triangulated the smell of marijuana to be coming from the room I was in". Total BS. There were three of them and they kept accusing me of being high and drunk (I was neither). The city police (white cars) are supposedly nicer usually.

Personally, I can't stand Boulder. It's about as fake and hypocritcal of a place as I've ever been.
Here's your typical Boulder "hippy": He has the dreads, beard, and hasn't showered in a week to look the part. But, then you see him go into Urban Outfitters and spend $500 on new clothes and whip out his wallet to pay and 8 platinum cards fall out. He then goes out, hops in his brand new Land Rover and drives off listening to Phish. The Land Rover is sporting as many "green" bumper stickers as possible as it chugs down the road getting 12mpg.
