4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school. The professors care about the students, and you get to live very unique experiences.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel as though a lot of students here get a liberal arts degree and don't end up using it.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't had an issue with safety personally, but I know safety across campuses countrywide need improvement.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are kept clean and are fairly nice, and the language houses are great.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek life, but they throw the most parties along with the sports houses.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't pay much attention to sports at my school, but the workout facility is great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Colorado College is great for its inclusive atmosphere and engaging environment. Everyone has an interesting background and will usually love to open up to you and have a discussion with you about sports, politics, the environment, food, or anything you can think of. It's a very engaging school since it runs on the block plan, and with one class at a time, you can go on exciting and educational field trips, including overnight camping trips.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The block plan, opportunities for studying abroad, and the community is one of a kind and overall so supportive and wonderful.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I personally feel relatively safe on campus. I have never been in a situation where I feel unsafe, however, I know many students who feel unsafe a lot of the time.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus, although mandatory for everyone but seniors, is great. All the living spaces have a home-like feel to them, even the traditional big dorms. Small houses are the most appealing to me personally. The living spaces on campus are designed to create very social atmospheres where residents can get to know each other and build community.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not big on campus, therefore many people do not know much about it. The people involved in Greek life put an emphasis on it and promote it, but other than that, it does not play a big role throughout campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Some students are heavily involved with athletics, whether it be varsity sports or intramural teams, whereas other students are not involved at all. There is also a range of in between students. Athletics are not heavily promoted or pushed down the students throats. It is a very "come if you please" type of environment.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love attending Colorado College. It's faced paced, rigorous curriculum on the block plan makes learning challenging yet enjoyable. My favorite thing about CC is the wide array of opportunities and experiences I get to have, like meeting Civil Rights activist Myrlie Evers, as well as the closeness of the faculty/staff with students. I would choose CC every day of every year because I feel like it's the best place for me to learn, grow and be successful.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Safety does a great job patrolling the campus. I generally feel safe walking on campus alone at night but I wouldn't walk off campus alone at night.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors at CC care and are interested in getting to know you. Professors gave me the confidence I needed in order to declare Biochemistry and they have been doing everything they can to help me after I graduate. You will learn a lot here.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Alumni network is thriving and those who know about CC have only good things to say about it. However, still not a ton of people know about the school and its demanding academics

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: There's a ton of on-campus housing and the 3 year living on campus rule creates a strong community at this school. The dorm rooms are very nice and secure. They come with a mini fridge and a mini microwave. The on campus apartments are beautiful and offer fabulous views.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I am in a sorority and I love my sisters and hanging out at the house but I also like that it is not all consuming like at some other schools. People involved in Greek life are also involved in a lot of other things.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
