This Is Boulder: Top views on campus

Nestled in the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder may be small, with only just over 100,000 inhabitants, but its personalities are vast. “This Is Boulder” is a series by CUIndependent.com photographers with the goal of visually defining what it means to live 5,430 feet above sea level.

This week, CUI photographer Matt Sisneros searched every tower, staircase and balcony for the best views around the University of Colorado campus.

Here is what he found and how to get there:

Harambe, the gorilla killed in the Cincinnati zoo in May 2016 who rose to meme prominence on the internet, became a rallying cry for many at CU during the election. More so as a joke than for animal rights, Harambe was remembered through signs and even themed parties. (Jackson Barnett/CU Independent)
