Community life at CU is very intentional. The freshman dorms are great at planning hall events to meet new people and embrace this stage in life. At the same time, the apartments teach you the responsibility of living on your own.

How did you pick your major?
Business is something that I have always been passionate about and can be used in almost every field. I saw it as the perfect balance between my passions and strengths.
