Colorado College students study on the Block Plan, where they take one course at a time for three-and-a-half weeks. With an average class size of 16 students and a 10:1 student to faculty ratio, Colorado College students experience an intense, focused and intimate learning environment. The unique schedule of the Block Plan provides opportunities for students to connect with their classmates, take off-campus field trips and fully engage with the subject they are studying. A typical day's schedule includes three hours of class in the morning, and some disciplines include afternoon classes (involving labs, film screenings, etc.) as well.
