Welcome to CC
Welcome to doorways, horizons, and adventures.
Welcome to the beginning of the rest of your life.
Welcome to Colorado College. Start exploring now.
Welcome to blocks.
Tired of carrying 30 lb backpacks and juggling five courses at once? On CC's innovative Block Plan, students take one course at a time and professors teach one. With an average class size of 16 students, courses delve thoroughly into the depths of their subject matter, and three-hour lectures are exceptions in a world ruled by critical discussion and analytic fieldwork. Isn't it about time you got to zero in on your passions?
Welcome to a 10:1 student to faculty ratio.
In an average class size of 16, your professors will not only know your name, but they'll also respect your ambition and your capacity to learn. The faculty at Colorado College possess a rare and earnest understanding of student potential - and hold us to it, facilitating an unbelievable threshold for growth.
Welcome to autonomy.
There's a reason we earn an average total of 750 independent study credits each year: learning is profoundly hands-on. A CC student is not just a student, but also a researcher, a journalist, a mathematician, an artist. Rise to the occasion. Try on different hats, and find one (or five) that fit. Your education is what you make it.
Welcome to the West.
Craving some sunshine? Colorado boasts an average of 300 days of sunshine per year. A breath of fresh air? With a remarkable proximity to an array of national parks and a Colorado fourteener in your backyard, you can take in that breath every day.
Welcome to study abroad.
As the people of the globe are increasingly interwoven, it becomes more important than ever to expand intercultural awareness and empathy. For any amount of time, CC makes it easy for you to see the world on your terms, for study or for service. As a result, about 81 percent of CC students spend time abroad.
Welcome to a (com)passionate student body of 2,040.
If you love it, we're not about to stop you from doing it. With more than 100 different student clubs and organizations, non-music majors can sing and non-athletes can play sports. CC students are constantly flirting and falling in love with new activities, from radio to Relay for Life, and 80 percent are involved in community service.
