Block Plan at Colorado College
At Colorado College, time works differently. Our students take one class for three-and-a-half weeks, followed by a four-and-a-half day break. For three hours every weekday, CC Tigers dive into their academic interests—focusing their entire attention on one subject. The days of finishing your math homework in English class and stressing over finals week are over.

Colorado College Reviews
The college provides many support structures, however virtually none of the students I know have had positive experiences with advising before they declare their majors, and advising faculty at the advising hub and those for IDMs serve more often as roadblocks rather than guides.
