Colorado College is deep in conversation. CC landed in the top spot nationally for “Class Discussions Encouraged” in “The Best 377 Colleges: 2013 Edition,” published by The Princeton Review.
Here’s what students said:
- CC students “love the Block Plan,” calling it “an incredible way to learn” and a system that will “help you become who you always wanted to be, or someone better.”
- All this is moved along by “incredible” professors who are “extremely smart in their academic area and make it really interesting and fun to learn more about what they do and know.” In fact, one student suggests, professors are “the reason to go to CC.”
- Faculty are “absolutely amazing,” some of the “most interesting people I have ever met, and they remember their students because classes aren’t 700 people large.” Classrooms are generally discussion-based, but that doesn’t make this “academically rigorous” school easy.
- “Because you meet for three-plus hours a day, every day, there is no slacking,” students note. “Professors hold students to a high standard, and most often, students rise to meet them.”
