Colorado School of Mines Reviews
My overall experience with the school is amazing! Although it is very tough and competitive, I wouldn't trade it for any other school. I have met some amazing professors, students, mentors, and teammates. I am truly blessed to be going to school with the best engineering classes and professors in the U.S. My favorite experience at CSM is being a student-athlete because everyone is very familiar with the nights full of homework, projects, and practice.
I have been at Mines for the past 4 years. I graduate in December. This school has been an excellent experience for me because it has not only allowed me to grow as a student, but a person as well. This school is not for those who are looking for a typical college experience. Prepare to buckle down to study engineering, science, or economics. Yes, surprisingly this school does not only specialize in engineering. I have had the opportunity to travel with the school to further my education outside of the classroom. I had the opportunity to tour a steel making plant in Chicago and a very good friend of mine was able to travel to San Diego for a Smart Materials Conference. There is plenty of opportunity to learn outside of the classroom, which is always a plus.
Colorado School of Mines is a very supportive community of peers. Coming into one of the most prestigious engineering universities in the nation can be very intimidating, but everyone is here to help. There are many resources available to aid you in studies, athletics, future careers, and personal development. Though classes can be very challenging, here at the Colorado School of Mines, you are never alone, and there will always be others willing to help.
