Apparently, even though the course work does increase in difficulty (like in high school) you actually get more engaged in your courses & want to discover better ways to expand your knowledge. Plus the Learning Center help here is excellent!! Go there if you ever need any help in Math, Science, Language, or Writing-type classes

  • Apr-03-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Good value for Colorado residents, with many degree options. Campus is growing - the recreation center is being expanded and additional housing under construction. Parking is difficult.

    UCCS is an absolutely beautiful school. I was offered a $20,000 scholarship right off the bat that has convinced me further that UCCS is the school for me.

    UCCS is perfect for those looking for quality classes in an ideal commuting location. It provides high quality food at just as high prices but there are a few selections for those on a budget and plenty of cafes. The only complaint that you will be hearing (consistently) if you attend is how miserable the parking is.

    UCCS is a very nice school. After going to a much larger university then transferring here, I can personally say that this university has a beautiful, well maintained campus with a dedicated staff and faculty. The challenge rating of this school may not be very high, however it gives a nice environment for its students to succeed in.

    UCCS is overcrowded. They do not have the infrastructure to support the number of students they take in each year. This has lowered the teaching standards.

    Gorgeous campus with the friendliest people. Opportunities galore and professors that work to help you succeed in anything. The only thing better than the view of Pikes Peak is the affordable tuition!

    The university has a awesome location. Whenever i'm mad about a test all I have to do is go outside. Also this is a great university for engineering.

    UCCS is very conflicting for me because they have phenomenal teachers but the parking situation is horrific. There is constant construction which has led to me to almost wreck multiple times. That being said, I would still rate this school very highly for the quality of their classes.

    The school has great teachers, but when I attended several years ago, the logistics of the school struggled. TIme after time my applications were lost, only to surface weeks later, or I was given misleading information purely on accident. However, if you can manage the confusion of trying to get there, the teachers and students are great.
