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

    This university excels in everything from academics to extra curricular activities. It is large enough that you get a large variety of people, and small enough so you don't feel like a small fish in the ocean. UCCS can offer you more than just a higher education, it can offer you amazing experiences with new friends you make and push you out of your comfort zone.

    If you're wealthy and can afford going to another school, go to CU Boulder or CU Denver. UCCS doesn't have resources, good food, a campus life- I've heard good things about the medical & engineering programs, but the College of Business is a piece of poo both in terms of academic quality & opportunity. Unless your dream job is to work for commission insurance sales, the College of Business career office is a joke.

    just don't come here if you expect to have professors to care about you or teach you.

    UCCS is a place where everyone can feel accepted. I am in my 4th year and love the close knit community. The classes are wonderful and I have never had a poor teacher.

    UCCS has the best learning environment I have ever known. The academic programs, student employment, and student resources are top-notch. Five out of five all around for this school; it's helping me achieve my life's dream relatively quickly.

    UCCS is a great school where the learning of students is valued and the teachers care about what they teach and the students themselves. Weekly events and/or activities are offered for people to do. The people on campus are friendly and the environment is quite safe.

    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.

  • Jan-21-2015 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    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.
