3 College Freshman

Athletics: People used to have more cheer at this school. Now the games are not very popular.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't experienced off-campus housing at Colorado college.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I usually do not eat off campus because I have a meal plan and I need to use that money. However, Downtown C Springs has some quality options. Sushi, Greek, Pho, and many people order Chinese and Pizza. Great brunch options as well. There are also some nicer restaurant for a special occasion or when your parents visit.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Because weed is legal in CO but not on campus, this has been a bit of an issue. Very lenient about drinking. Protests are not discouraged. Pretty open communication.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a big partier. I think party is a silly word. Most parties are "house parties" which are crowded and loud. Sometimes people hang in smaller groups, but that is less prevalent at CC.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid but it is widely available.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Rastall Dining Hall has options for everyone. There is always a vegan/vegetarian option. Sumptuous salad bar. Delicious desserts. Perfect pizza.

Preserve has good fruit and meals as well.

C store is basically a mini grocery store with fresh fruit a milkshake machine.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in a single in a language house. There's a community kitchen, large restrooms, and living room where people meet or eat or watch foreign films. Close proximity to food and classes. Nice atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Only seniors are allowed to live off campus. Its normal a much better bargain than campus housing and since we aren't a big campus, even off campus housing is still very close to all the events happening on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Colorado Springs isn't exactly cosmopolitan but it does have a few nice restaurants and shops that students like to visit on a regular basis.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Very understanding and progressive. They are certainly sympathetic and aim to create a fun and positive college experience.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Of all the private schools that I applied to, this was the most generous for financial aid. They certainly surpass anything the federal government would offer and the aid program is much stronger than any public school. It really makes an expensive liberal arts education affordable.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is almost always something going on and CC students are normally pretty creative while doing it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The non cafeteria options are a little pricey but there are many more options than a typical school cafeteria. Its all pretty healthy too. I think I eat healthier at school than at home.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am in the newest dorm, Slocum, and its absolutely great. I have a nice sized room and was paired with an awesome roommate. I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The process of being approved to live off campus sucks.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are good restaurants, but they're over-priced.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I liked it a lot my freshman year, but now I think it's dumb.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's really nice, but it costs way too much and should be optional.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The area is decently inexpensive and nice

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They could maybe provide more parking options.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic facilities and sports teams are great.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: All of the majors are challenging and there is a significant number of options.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am applying for the neuroscience major, which is challenging but rewarding.

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.

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.
