4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I appreciate the professors at my school and the atmosphere is relaxed but safe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Christian Challenge is the best club offered at UCCS, the people are like a family and we are all very supportive of one another.

The professors in the nursing program are all so supportive and caring. They challenge their students and make sure they are going to be ready for their career in the real world.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers are there to help, and are really involved with the students.

1 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The Housing and Resident Life Director and Asst Directors do not care about the students or parents. They just see residents as money to fund projects/pay checks. The students/residents are just like putting things in a box and can put them anywhere and the students just need to accept it. Because students must do what they are told and students have no say in their request. Ralph Giese and Chris Mellott do not realize that the students are their customers of their service (housing) and they are treated like children and not adults and must listen and do exactly as they say.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes that I have taken so far have been really good. All of my professors are very helpful and are willing to take significant time out of their day to help their students. The campus is fairly small, but I really like it. It has a beautiful view of Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountain front range. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a very solid student life, but that fact is quickly changing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The only complaint I have would be about my roommates, but that does not reflect the academic excellence of my school. It was a fantastic first year experience and it made me want to finish my four years in this university.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy going to UCCS. Plenty of options, plenty of help from both students and teachers a like. I recommend this school to many other people.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy this school because it is the right size for me. It is not too big or too small. It has everything that I am looking for.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is cool, campus seems like a great place and it really felt like waling on a University campus. They're also expanding on the amenities for students for which awesome. However, I am a non-traditional student who works full-time and has 3 kids. For my degree program, there are not enough online options so I will now have to transfer to another school. Also, The new amenities are cool, but be prepared to pay A LOT of student fees on top of tuition rates. Even if you have a degree program that offers online classes and you are not on-campus to utilize everything you pay for, you still have to finance it!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has a beautiful campus and lots of stuff to do. I love the people that make up the school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am currently taking classes online through UCCS as part of the dual enrollment nursing program. I attend Front Range Community College in Fort Collins.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally have found a lot of good opportunities at UCCS. I was very happy with the choice of my school and I still am. It isn't too big and it isn't too small either. Greek life is awesome and the office of student activities provides students plenty of choices for events and fun things to do on and off campus! One thing that makes my school unique is the health care system. We are given the opportunity to pay for health care for the full semester. It means so matter how many times you go to the health center, or what medications you need, it is always completely covered. It was extremely beneficial to me my first year!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I think they are very nice but strict when needed.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have not found out a way to obtain scholarships through the school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I feel as though Cafe 65 is not the best food. I found myself not eating almost every meal I got from there. I love Jazzman's and Clydes. It's usually really good.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Good places nearby to eat. Can even take the shuttle to four diamonds and walk across to many places to eat. Or the metro bus runs near/at the school too. Giving many places to choose from, even with no car.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Be prepared to possibly submit papers 1-5 times. I don't know what they do with them but I had to submit mine 3 times.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus but I have friends that do that really enjoy it.

3 College Junior

Administration: There's not too much campus strictness. Everyone respects campus policies.
