  • Great College here in Colorado Springs. Like most colleges the faculty is a bit too liberal for my liking but any young person with their own strong convictions be it liberal or conservative will survive ok here. The campus is beautiful and location can't be beat.
  • 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+++++
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great location.
