    Study hard and succeed in your majors. Make new friends and be friendly to the professors and staff if you can at UCCS. Do your best on understanding the lecture notes, the homework, and the textbooks to help succeed in the course you are taking and get help if you can if you are having trouble understanding the subjects in class.

    There's a reason the acceptance rate is almost 100%- they are ballooning the campus population in order to afford rapid and very expensive expansion including new dorm buildings, parking garages, and an art center. I'm expecting that once they get large enough they'll cut the rate and make it more selective, and at that point the schools academics, student life, and general campus experience will vastly improve. That being said, if you go here now don't be surprised if every 3000 level and below class has over 40 students (despite the promises for a small class size), if you never (ever, ever, ever) find a parking space (which are like, $400 for a year- SO not worth it- word is they sell ~5 parking passes per parking space, so imagine your odds of getting a space from 9 am to 4 pm), or if you end up with classes at terrible times like 8 am, 7-10 pm, or Saturdays (again, they've increase the # of classes available without increasing the number of facilities).

    the classes sound good and some of the professors are okay but the majority of them don't care at all about the students and are not even good at their jobs. at the few years i have been here i have had three good professors and two of them were not in my major, which is business. if you're planning on majoring in business or science i would recommend a school with better professors who actually care about their jobs.

    If you wanna go to UCCS, make SURE they have the academic program you're interested in. Don't be disappointed if and when you don't get the hosted scholarships you apply for. If you're in high school, prove yourself superior regarding grades. You can get some good scholarship money just for doing well in HS. If you wanna commute, get there EARLY. Parking gets quite terrible around 8-9.
