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.

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.

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.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We have a few division 1 sports and the division 3 sports are also popular. However, they are not a huge part of campus life and not going to games or not being interested is not uncommon.

Overall Experience: CC is a special and unique place that values students for who they are, not what they have or what they look like. You will find that you are the person you always wanted to be after 4 years at this school.

Campus Housing: I currently live in Loomis, which is the oldest freshman and sophomore housing. Yes, we do need some renovation, and it's very hot in there, but we do have the best community, and we often joke around saying that it's because we all suffer together. Slocum is called hotel Sloc because it does feel like you're staying in a hotel. Mathias is basically the party dorm, but they do have spacious rooms and the cstore. There are off campus houses, Westridge apartments, an upper classmen LLCs and resident halls

Athletics: I believe the biggest sport at CC is our Hockey team. Although we didn't have a great season, the fan support is pretty awesome. Also, our soccer team is pretty great, but I don't believe alot of people attended the home games. As for the gym, it is athlete and non-athlete friendly.

Overall Experience: 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.

Overall Experience: 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!

Campus Housing: Housing is great. You just have to find where works best for you. Some places are loud and social whole other places are quiet and studious. It seems like a lot of kids party rather than spending extra time studying. I personally love the Arthur house because it is substance free and pretty quiet (it is the closest thing to living in a normal house), and it is very home like and very warming.

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.
