"It was a very disappointing academic experience. There was more emphasis on politics and extracurricular activities than on real education. The block plan is a joke. There is a high tolerance for bullying. This is definitely a school I should have avoided."

"Colorado College was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. The campus is vibrant and teeming with intellectual students who care about learning in order to make social change. Professors are passionate and devote the entirety of their careers to their top-notch instruction. While the Block Plan is challenging, it enables you to immerse yourself in one class at a time and develop meaningful relationships with peers and professors alike. I highly recommend Colorado College."

"Colorado College has a very unique system of classes called the Block system where you take a single class for 3 1/2 weeks and then switch to a different class. The curriculum is challenging and thus very rewarding. With such a unique system you can really delve into those topics that interest you. You can also create very valuable bonds with professors and other students that will help you both in your academic career and professionally after school. This is key as the school is fairly small and you want to create good relationships early on. The block system also allows for fantastic out of class opportunities from class field trips to extra curricular outings. Overall a small yet challenging school hidden away in beautiful Colorado."

"The block plan is incredible! Professors are brilliant, helpful, warm, and very casual. You feel like a person, instead of a number. Huge selection of classes! There is always something to do. Attending Colorado College was one of the best decisions that I have ever made."

"Colorado College was one of the best experiences of my life. The education provided was exceptional as there was one-on-one interaction with professors who knew each of their student's names. Every class I had was memorable, educational, and provided me with proactive experiences leading me to become a better thinker. I had access to so many tools, like being able to use the theater and dance facilities beyond the classroom time. Their physical fitness faculties are easy to access and are enjoyed by many students. Everyone who attends Colorado College will become fans of Tigers hockey, and enjoy the oncampus concerts and plethora of events hosted oncampus by the numerous clubs and programs."

"Higher education at a small liberal arts college was invaluable to me. At Colorado College I learned critical thinking and had the opportunity to study a number courses in various disciplines outside my major field of study such as romance languages and art history."
