More than 11,000 students from throughout Colorado, the U.S., and the world live and learn on CMU's beautiful 90-acre campus. At CMU, your professors will know you by name instead of by number, with 83% of our classes having fewer than 40 students.
If you join the Maverick family, you will have ample opportunity to challenge yourself inside and outside the classroom. We have 27 NCAA DII teams and 190+ clubs/organizations, and if that isn't enough, we are located in an outdoor recreation playground. We are just minutes from some of Colorado's best hiking, biking, and skiing.

Colorado Mesa University Reviews
I'm assuming a lot of the stifled social aspects are due to COVID-19, but the enviornment so far has been very petty and judgemental. I feel like I'm back in high school.
The campus is beautiful. Grand Junction is not. My bike was stolen a week into the semester. The homeless population is significant and property theft is rampant. As a woman, do not walk around town alone or at night.
I saw nothing but glowing testimonies about this school, and so far I'm regretting my decision. Research carefully.
