I was living in Florida and got a mailer from school. My family was in the process of moving to Colorado so I looked at Mines and the other large Colorado schools and really fell in love with the small size and feel of the campus. Everyone is friendly, and the coursework is rigorous. Many companies know Mines by name and seek out interns that are from our school which has been awesome in finding job opportunities!
It's very rigorous and pertains to many aspects of civil engineering. You can customize your major by choosing electives in your interest of civil, which for me is construction. Many people are fond of structural or geotechnical as emphasis options as well.
