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
Not to be too pessimistic, however, I will say though that I've met many really nice people on CC's campus, especially the students, although I do tend to see the liberal and privileged side of things in a simple classroom environment often. I would say for this school to truly be diverse as they say, CC needs more diverse viewpoints as a whole. For now, CC has an amazing mathematics department, and that's my major.
