University of Colorado at Boulder

The University of Colorado at Boulder (CU-Boulder; CU) is a public research university located in Boulder, Colorado. Considered a Public Ivy, it is the flagship university of the University of Colorado system and was founded five months before Colorado was admitted to the union in 1876. The university’s colors are officially silver and gold; however, traditional CU items utilize the black and gold color scheme.

In 2007, the university consisted of nine colleges and schools and offered over 150 academic programs, enrolled 28,988 students, and granted 6,781 degrees. Six Nobel Laureates, seven MacArthur Fellows, and 17 astronauts have been affiliated with CU Boulder as students, researchers, or faculty members in its history. The university received nearly $340 million in sponsored research in 2009 to fund programs like the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, JILA, and National Institute of Standards and Technology’s NIST-F1 atomic clock.

Colorado Buffaloes competed in nine intercollegiate sports in the NCAA Division I Big 12 Conference. On June 10, 2010, it was announced that they would be joining the Pacific-10 Conference  . The Buffaloes have won 23 NCAA championships: 17 in skiing, five total in men’s and women’s cross country, and one in football. Approximately 1,500 students participate in 34 intercollegiate club sports annually as well.
