    The atmosphere at CC is initially very laid-back, but once classes begin so does the excitement. Everyone is incredibly motivated and active in all sorts of programs and clubs. There are activities all year round on the campus and within the community of Colorado Springs. After class, which ends promptly at noon, students can be seen doing almost everything but homework. Whether it be frisbee, playing music, clubs, or just going for a hike, recreation at CC can always be found. Also, our school's division one hockey team is awesome to watch on Friday and Saturday nights, which is where you will find most students during the season. What I love most about CC is how even though it is so small (~2,000 students), you can start a new class and meet 20 new people, all of whom you get to know pretty well over the course of the block. Everyone is going to the same parties, eating at the same place, and studying at the same library. It has the feeling of a close-knit community, yet it is comprised of individuals so unique and diverse in nature that you can never be bored, and the year flies by before you can even think about slowing down. Not to mention Pike's Peak is literally in our backyard, so the breath-taking scenery just adds to how much I am enjoying being a CC tiger! read full review

    Colorado College has literally become my second home. The campus’s small population (around 2,000) provides a very close-knit relationship between students regardless of their year (junior, senior, etc.) The block plan causes students to have a new “first day of school” every three and a half weeks. As intimidating as that sounds, students will walk into a new class and see so many familiar faces and have the opportunity to make even more friends every month! My personal theory is that because of CC’s size everyone knows everyone at least in passing! Starting from my prospective student visit I noticed how friendly everyone on campus is regardless of race, age, or gender (which is great considering CC is such a diverse school)! Having a campus nestled right into the heart of the Rocky Mountains provides students with the opportunity to spend a block break (a four day rest period after every block) hiking, skiing, camping, or doing a variety of other activities right in their backyard. In addition to these opportunities students at CC develop great time management skills between their homework and extra-curricular activities. The campus provides an outlet for an assortment of social clubs, networks, and sports teams that allows students to blow off a little steam after a long day of class. read full review
