CC is an excellent place to study and challenge yourself! We're intellectual, physically active, passionate and mostly left of center ... but we're welcoming to everybody. The administration is great and so are the profs. I had one bad experience with a Psychology professor, but other than that, it's been awesome! I also studied Music while at CC and was really impressed with this program and all it offers. The Music Dept is definitely strong and a hidden gem!
One of the things that i love about this college I've been there like field trip for AVID classes and I really like the culture of school and is very close to where i live and is good place to learn .
Colorado College strives to be more inclusive and diverse, which is progressive for a college. However, there are still problems within these goals and it still has a ways to go in its progress. I have found the environment here more open and accepting than my previous education.

This school has given me everything I could've needed in terms of a great education, including a supportive yet inspiring environment, dedicated faculty, and motivated students.
Colorado College has great social life. There are no clicks and everyone wants to be friends with everyone. It can be stressful because of the classes can be hard, but it's a great place to go.
CC has been a great school for me. The block plan has worked well for me and I've really appreciated the access to out-of-classroom learning through field trips!
Colorado College has a great campus in the heart of Colorado Springs. The school is close to the mountains and the Outdoor Education offers opportunities for the students to get outdoors. The campus is safe and smoke free. The Block Plan is a unique experience where students take one course at a time, for 3.5 weeks. This allows students to be completely immersed in one subject without juggling multiple class loads.
Just finished my Sophomore Year at CC. Education major, but dabbled in Psychology. I love this school and honestly couldn't think of a better way of learning than the block plan. The teachers are passionate and the classes are engaging. The students are open minded and adventurous and fun! I love and adore the campus and how many events are put on each block. Hands down. Best school. The housing is good if you know which dorm you'd like to live in, just ask around! The food is also pretty good and there's a lot of it! Don't be afraid to use the kitchens though.
Drug abuse is rampant, students are delusional trustafarians, professors teach lies (no GMOs won't kill you and yes animals can commit acts of violence), there were several assaults and robberies on campus from the locals, the parties are identical week after week, alumni have struggled with poverty and homelessness... the outdoorsy part is cool, but there are far better options if you want to treat higher education as a summer camp. Try MSU or Boulder instead.
Colorado College is a great school for those with a love of academics and adventure. The people at CC help you to view life from perspectives you may have never considered. The fact that one day I could be sitting in an engaging classroom, walking down the streets of Colorado's second largest city the next day, and climbing trails near Pike's Peak the last, helped to convince me that Colorado was the only option for me.
At CC, students are people first, academics second. CC is different from other liberal arts schools because it focuses on holistic growth, prioritizing mental health and recreation alongside schoolwork. There are issues with diversity and scholarships here, but the school is making big moves every year.
I am currently a freshman at CC and I love it!! Everything I could have asked for and more. The block plan is an obvious highlight/attraction, and the enviorment is awesome because you can do whatever you'd like!
Colorado College is an amazing place. Everyone here is so intelligent, kind, and accepting. The Block Plan is a very unique way of study but I have had an excellent experience so far. Professors go out of their way to provide the best education that we can get. I would highly recommend coming to CC!
I absolutely love everything the Colorado College (CC) has to offer! From amazing professors who take their time to make sure each and every student understands the material, to the amazing programs we offer such as the 3-2 program, plethora of summer research, Priddy Trips, Venture Grants, and yes even great food!

What I wish would change is the constant racism we see from the students, to the faculty and staff, and even the professors. Unfortunately it is rampant and very hard to deal with as a Native American on campus. Constant micro-aggressions wherever you go make life in general tough to deal with.
I am a just graduated senior from CC. Attending was the best decision I have made in my life. The culture at CC is adventurous and thoughtful, and everyone is there to help each other learn, grow, and explore. I learned more about myself and the person I want to become, and more about the world, than I could have imagined. You should come here. Its awesome.
I have really enjoyed my experience with Colorado College, thus far. The block plan is not for everyone, but if you love it, I usually find, you really, really love it.
Was really disappointed by the general quality of the school and everything it had to offer. Would not recommend.

This is a great school. Very strong academics, lots of things to do on campus. A very closely knit student body. In a beautiful part of Colorado, with very active people.
I feel as though a lot of students here get a liberal arts degree and don't end up using it.
I love my school. The professors care about the students, and you get to live very unique experiences.
