At first I was skeptical about the block plan whilst being a science major. But it is indeed possible; it is very time consuming and requires dedication and perseverance! I really enjoy how you can immerse yourself in a course for 3.5 weeks. For example, I'm currently taking Arabic, and I LOVE the class and language. There are days when I'm spending hours practicing and listening to Arabic by doing my homework, speaking with a classmate, listening to disney in Arabic, etc. So, if I had the chance to reapply to CC (Colorado College), I most certainly would because of the scenery and the wonderful people I have encountered.

I've had a fantastic time so far. My professors are engaging, my classes are interesting, and the campus is beautiful. Everyone has some sort of hidden talent that surprises you, people are fit and care about being in touch with the outdoors, and are generally fun to be around. My peers are smart and can be engaged both intellectually and physically, and are generally nice, and outgoing people. I love being so close to so many opportunities in the outdoors, and the party scene is pretty sweet too!

I am very satisfied with the professors that are experienced at CC. However, the visiting professors is very hit or miss on whether or not the professor will be a good professor or a poor professor. I am a transfer to CC, so the visiting professor thing is new to me as I did not have any when I attended the University of Colorado. I have had one rather awful visiting professor, and I have also had a visiting professor that was my absolute favorite and will stay in contact with for the rest of my life!
