4 Reasons Mines is Golden

1. Whether it’s skiing, rockclimbing, snowshoeing, or hiking, Colorado has it all!  Colorado features everything from the cities, to wildflowers, to Rocky Mountain wildlife.  You can drive 30 minutes to Denver or 1 hour to the ski slopes.  We hope that you fall in love with the kind people of Colorado as well as our beautiful state.



2. Established in 1874, Mines is loaded with campus traditions.  A large, white “M” sits on a hill overlooking the campus.  The “M” lights up overnight, and the lights change shape during special events.  You will be included in Mines traditions in everything from football games (fall only), the cardboard boat race down the creek (spring only), to the walking an Ore Cart to the capital of Denver (spring only). 





3. Colorado School of Mines was ranked the #1 engineering school in the U.S. by USA Today College.  Mines' accredited undergraduate programs are highly selective, and our renowned faculty create a challenging and supportive learning environment for our students.  Mines graduates are in great demand by companies and government agencies around the world.

4.
