CC Stories

Colorado College recognizes and honors the original inhabitants who first settled in the area and who called the nearby highest mountain “Tava,” the original name given by the Ute people to what is now known as Pikes Peak. At CC, we respect all peoples and strive to grow as a unique and welcoming community.
