Open House Opportunities

During your college search, visiting a campus is one of the best ways to dig in to a community. Whether you eat lunch with a student, participate in a lively class discussion, marvel at our mountain views, or make connections with faculty and staff, you will walk away with a good sense of who we are. In addition to regularly-scheduled daily visits, we also offer more comprehensive, longer Open House programs that will expose you to academic and co-curricular opportunities.

Virtual Fall Open House

High school seniors, transfer students, and their families are invited to connect with the Colorado College community at one of our Virtual Fall Open Houses.

Experience Colorado College Program

ECC is a visit program unlike any other. We know your college decision doesn’t just include you, which is why we are providing funding for you and a guest to visit campus (could be a parent, grandparent, older sibling, counselor, or teacher) upon successful participation of our virtual program.

Why be ordinary? Learn differently, one block at a time, and get ready to experience the gateway to the Southwest.
