Colorado College is a liberal arts college in Colorado Springs, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. CC offers over 80 academic majors and minors as well a thematic minor for students who wish to choose their field of concentration from several disciplines. All CC courses are scheduled according to the Block Plan where students attend one class at a time for three-and-a-half weeks followed by a four day break. For recreation, the CC campus provides access to a number of outdoor attractions including the Garden of the Gods Park and the Rocky Mountain “Fourteeners.”
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.

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.
