UCCS is a great community, very safe and very beautiful. It has a great location, close to all necessary amenities as well as outdoor adventure sites. The community is nice, has a very welcoming and diverse atmosphere with lots of growth in progress. There are plenty of groups and organizations to integrate yourself in, and the academics are good as well. The teachers are very available for necessary assistance. All around great place!

I really enjoyed going to UCCS. The campus is very beautiful and they offer a lot of different amenities! Although it is mainly a commuter campus, the campus is plenty big. Now they have even expanded the campus and it is a lot bigger. I enjoyed all the different events UCCS offered such as different dances, movie nights, and other fun things. Also I really liked how each subject offered free tutors to help you out! Overall a great experience going there.
UCCS is an awesome school! It has one of the best engineering programs! Something I would want to see change is the number of engineering professors. If UCCS hired more engineering professors, there would be a wider range of learning experiences.
