Guys & Girls: Everybody is athletic in some way, so everybody keeps in shape. For the most part, people are super friendly and some of the nicest people you'll get to know, and if they're not, it's a big enough school to just avoid them. You'll find your group here, and you'll have a great social life with those people. Just be open to any and everyone who comes along and soon you'll find exactly the people you want to spend four years with

Guys & Girls: CC is a very granola place, and most people enjoy outdoor activities. Most people are fairly opinionated which allows for fantastic debates and conversations to occur all of the time.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The CC population is generally a very svelte and healthy bunch. Girls and guys both are athletic and outdoorsy, and most students seem to have a glow about them that can only come from the Rocky Mountain sunshine. CC girls save the lipstick and mascara for the parties and tend to opt for a natural look, even though the labels on their clothes say otherwise. Guys are usually similarly lax with their appearance.

Relationships on campus are quite varied. There is a definite hookup culture, which may be exacerbated by the strenuous pace of the block plan. Though casual dating is the norm, most students are capable of making time for a steady relationship when they find a special someone. CC students are a fun-loving bunch—the block plan puts a huge workload on their shoulders, but they’re always ready to put their books aside and have a good time.

Social Scene
The laid-back attitude of most CC students allows for easy socializing, and freshmen usually develop a close circle of friends quickly enough to start touring the party scene in groups. The social scene largely centers around the off-campus house parties. Students can usually put up with these weekend bashes for their first two years, but grow tired of them eventually. For the non-party scene, there are plenty of alternatives available, and people have a wide variety of interests on campus. Having a good time at CC is really just a matter of finding people with similar interests and enough time to hang out on the block plan.
Hookups or Relationships?
A recent campus newspaper student poll revealed that if CC is lacking in one thing, it's relationship material. One-night hookups and brief flings are the norm, and serious relationships are the odd exception.
Dress Code
"Upscale outdoorsy" is the best way to describe the CC image. The "granola" type from a few years back has been replaced by a crowd that is not afraid to show off their love of expensive mountain brands. The Birkenstock image is still around, but is much less commonly seen and is interspersed with plenty of random, quirky fashion. During the winter, North Face fleece jackets, wool beanies, and the ubiquitous Ugg boots are in vogue. At first glance, students seem to place almost no importance on fashion, but on closer examination, their brand-name jeans and their oh-so-slightly tousled hair give them away as an upscale crowd.
