Review: The University of Colorado at Boulder (officially University of Colorado Boulder, although also commonly referred to as CU-Boulder, CU, or Colorado) is a public research university located in Boulder, Colorado. 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. According to "The Public Ivies: America's Flagship Public Universities" (2001), it is considered one of the prestigious "Public Ivy League" schools. The university's colors are officially silver and gold; however, traditional CU items utilize the black-and-gold color scheme. The university consists of nine colleges and schools and offers over 150 academic programs, and enrolls 33,010 students. 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 US$454 million in sponsored research in 2010 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 24 NCAA championships: 18 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.
