  • The family needed a bit of exercise, so we visited Colorado College near downtown Colorado Springs for a self guided walking tour with dog on-leash Enjoyable and full of history - very well maintained...  more »
  • SFO who went to weekend walks and picnic lunch. Old buildings are save and use to clean the atmosphere. So close to a large park, enjoyed a half-day.

  • A small liberal arts college located near the heart of the city, with a beautiful, compact campus. Has the feel of being quaint and progressive at the same time.

  • Colorado College, or CC, is an excellent place to study and grow as an undergrad! My son loves it there & has had the wonderful opportunity to take a wide variety of courses from top faculty while also pursuing his passion in Music. The Music Dept. is first rate! And the Administration is caring and works hard to make sure all students feel welcomed there. It's not easy to get into, but if you do, take advantage of the many opportunities that await you as a student at CC!! A+++++
  • The best place to earn and learn. Beautiful grounds, welcoming atmosphere, and wonderful people. I enjoy spending the day here and would suggest to anyone. Very welcoming.
  • I'm not a student here and cannot speak to the policies or education. However, the architecture on campus is absolutely stunning (I felt like I was applying for Hogwarts). The only professor I am aware from this school is Dave Mason, and boasting a former Poet Laureate for the entire state of Colorado (who is amazingly kind) as a professor is definitely reason to want to go here.
  • I am an alum from 1987 and am very dissatisfied with CC. The faculty and administration are staunchly anti business. If you or your children are considering attending CC, please examine the roi data for recent grads. It is in the bottom quartile of all 4 year US colleges. The school may be ok as a pre med or pre law option however
  • Wonderful place to learn and grow. Top students
