  • 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
  • I love being involved in all the recreational activities
  • Nothing has prepared me more for the real world than Colorado College. Something for everyone, phenomenal support, top notch academics, and the most aesthetically beautiful campus I've ever seen.
