What Students Are Saying

4.06 Average Rating
Colorado College has a unique academic system, with a 3.5-week Block Plan, which provides an intensive learning experience. The class sizes are small and the courses are often very hands-on and interactive with supportive professors. Aside from academics, the college supports a wide range of extracurricular activities and offers plenty of resources on campus as well.
Carmen from Belmont, MA
Unique is an understatement at Colorado College. The Block Plan has us studying the same subject for 3.5 weeks and it really takes over your life. But there is still time for fun, as one of our mottos says, Work hard, play harder.
