    Campus Safety

    there is security all the time all through campus. anytime they see something or someone suspicious they go and look into it. i should know, i have been suspected a couple of times (they thought i was not a student) and was asked to show my id. if it is anything bigger, then the police can be notified right away (they are about five minutes away from our campus).

    Greek Life

    none

    Clubs and Activities

    you have all the freedom to create and participate in clubs and activities. if they don't have what you would like to see, then it's as easy as asking for it.

    Great for these types of students

    if you want a small school, want to get to know both students and professors well, have quick access to downtown, like to see a beautiful campus and scenery and like old architecture (school looks like a cross between a castle and a church) then this school might be good match for you.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    can't really say unusual, but colorado heights is actually on the highest point of denver.

    Bang for the buck

    tuition is actually really low, their tuition is actually on par with what community colleges ask for. if you are wanting to use as little money as possible but want a good education then this is the institution for you.

    What to do for fun

    for starters, if they do not have a club you like there is a simple solution, create your own. colorado heights tries to make sure that their students have as much freedom as they can. so if you take an interest in something, they will try to make sure it is fulfilled. last time i was there, me and a couple of other students created the first soccer team and an art club. so to finish things off. if you want to do something, chances are that you will be able to do it.

    Food and Dining

    food is prepared everyday by cooks. the cafeteria is medium sized and has an amazing view of the mountains. they cook up food from all over the world, so be prepared to try different things.

    Dorm Life

    haven't really lived in the dorms, but i kept getting mixed reviews from the students. some liked it, others not so much. like in most colleges, they are about the size of a bedroom and one can choose whether to share with someone or not.

    Academic Rigor

    classes are actually demanding, and as the years go by the curriculum is getting more and more advanced.

    Tips for prospective students

    it is still new, so the institution is still fixing some bugs (trying out what works and what doesn't). make sure to bring a camera, the campus is gorgeous and the view of the mountains is magnificent. one other tip, make sure to get involved as much as possible.

    In three sentences

    it is a small school that allows you to get to know both the professors and students on a personal level. although it is quite new, this institution has been growing rapidly, both with students and new programs. one of the perks of attending this university is that one gets to meet students from all over the world which is extremely interesting and fun.

    Great for these types of students

    International Students, American Students. High School Students looking for advanced curriculum.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The CHU campus is shared with the Southwest early college (SEC), Augustine Institute, and AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) . Southwest Early College An independent charter high school, is part of the Denver Public Schools system. As a small high school, SEC provides a world-class education in a personal, supportive atmosphere. As an early college high school, SEC students take a traditional 9th and 10th grade curriculum, then take college-level coursework in the 11th and 12th grades. AmeriCorps NCC Is a network of national service programs that engage more than 50,000 Americans each year in intensive service to meet critical needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment. AmeriCorps members serve through more than 2,100 nonprofits, public agencies, and faith-based organizations. They tutor and mentor youth, build affordable housing, teach computer skills, clean parks and streams, run after-school programs, and help communities respond to disasters. Created in 1993, AmeriCorps is part of the Corporation for National and Community Service. The CHU campus serves as one of the three locations in the US where AmeriCorps members are based.

    Bang for the buck

    the College is a private institution that offers the In state tuiton price to all students (New, Transfer, or International). Based on enrollment HS or Transfer College GPA is above a 2.0 GPA then a auto matic Pell Granst Scholarships ($5,550) is awarded to student which is 20% of tutuion fees payed for.

    What to do for fun

    The CHU campus has a soccer field, Two tennis courts, one basket ball court, swimming pool, student cafe, student parking, a campus track (that wraps around entire campus).

    Food and Dining

    If dorming on camus most students have acess to on site kitchen facility. The Cafe is open also, but the fee isn't a resonable fee for a three meal option. Your better of buy in forr that will last for a week or atleast a month. Shopping stores are located on Federal Blvd. strip.

    Dorm Life

    Each student who dorms can choose to have a double dorm or have a sinlge dorm. the price vary depending on if roomate is a CHU student or a non-CHU student. Peacefull campus atmospher. The CHU campus is shared with the Southwest early college (SEC), Augustine Institute, and AmeriCorps National Cilvilian Community Corps (NCCC) . I was a former 2011-2012 year corps member who served local Denver, CO, Winter Park, CO, Harlingen, TX, Piedmont, OK working with non- profit organizations such as Catholic Charities, Rebuilding Together Metro Denver, National Sports Center for The Disabled, Colorado Center for The Blind.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are right out high school or a re-turning student then discuss with your curriculum advisor what your needs are before you get a course that isn't on your grade level. Look at what type of enrollment entrance exams are offed if they are even offed to you. Find out the ratio of incoming new students to those of current students (GPA etc.)

    In three sentences

    The classes are made up a small student body (5-10) students. The curriculum isn't much of a challenge and some of the professors don't have strategic teaching methods for students who have different learning methods. Further more upon enrollment their isn't any entrance exams to see what current grade level the student is at in order to best schedule appropriate course and classes to start the semester off right.
