4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: the school is really safe. As far as health, it is mediocre.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are plenty of computer labs, but it is very helpful if you have your own laptop

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus food is great if you can get there! Shugas is by far the best place to go!

5 College Freshman

Weather: Weathers very bipolar, which is fun and keeps you on your toes. It will be 65 degrees in the day and dumping snow at night. Its hard to know what to expect.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The student body is not very diverse, but you are not treated differently if you are a minority.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid, however I hear that is it fairly attainable.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice. Loomis probably has the smallest room/is the oldest dorm, but has the best community. Mathius is nicer than loomis, but tends to be pretty dirty from drunk kids. Slocum was recently renovated and is very very fancy, its usually quiet which is nice if that is what you are looking for.

Campus Strictness: The campus is not very strict as long as you are not being dumb and/or disturbing others.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am an EV Policy major and the Environmental department is great at CC. The block plan allows for a unique experience with hands on studying. For example, my Global climate change class went camping and summited a mountain all while studying the changing tree line in Colorado.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty small here. However it is responsible for some of the good parties. Most sororities/frats don't have houses, expect for Kappa Sigma.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is really nice if you can get it. Unfortunately you have to be a senior even have the option of off campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Local atmosphere is great if you have a car. There are plenty of good restaurants, museums, and shops that can be accessed by walking but bike/car works best.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The night life at CC is fun! However, at peak hours in the night house parties can get very over crowded.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: campus safety is awesome, they are so friendly

4 College Sophomore

Majors: You have until sophomore year to decide

Jump for Joy Jump for Joy A CC freshman on a New Student Orientation trip to the Collegiate Peaks. NSO (also called Priddy) trips are a student's first taste of CC and offer them a chance to get to know a small group of people. The groups engage in service projects together across Colorado and the region.

The climate, social opportunities, intense academics, and the chance to become involved in a variety of activities (even as a first-year student) sways visitors within moments of stepping onto Colorado College's campus. Incoming students and those planning to apply should drop in for a visit, either for the day or overnight.

More than most other colleges, CC earns respect from its current students and graduates for the training it provides in many areas that serves students well throughout their careers. Aside from social and academic elements, CC brings amazing speakers and activities to campus. Better yet, with all the grants and funding available for student projects, rarely a night passes without a student giving a presentation about his or her adventures hiking in Tibet, helping immigrants survive at the U.S.-Mexico border, or interning in the Antarctic. It’s possible to get an education nearly anywhere, but to get a real educational experience, CC is a perfect choice.
