Colorado Mountain College is a public institution that operates eleven campuses throughout western Colorado. The school offers a Colorado Concurrent Enrollment Programs Act which allows high school students to earn college credit before graduating high school. CMC provides faculty-led international programs that take students to countries such as Ireland, South Africa, Switzerland, and Japan. The school has taken steps to make each campus more sustainable by requiring that flourescent or LED bulbs be used, energy audits are frequently conducted, and each campus has a recycling program.
This is a great two year school for those interested in any outdoor activities associated with mountains, rivers, or desert. Not only does CMC offer a quality education with small classes, but you also have access to great outdoor adventure classes such as rock climbing, river travel, and various backpacking trips. I have loved attending this college, and it is REALLY affordable!

Exceptional value. Going to CMC to first obtain my Associate's degree was a strategic option for me as a student pursuing a degree in neuroscience. I took high-level classes, including Physics and Chemistry, and I feel I received a better education than I would at a big university - really laying a good foundation for my future education.
