Reasons to attend and to not attend Colorado College

To Attend

  • “You’re around beautiful things. If you like skiing or hiking it’s a pretty ideal place to go to school.”
  • “Even if you don’t like to ski and snowboard, there’s so much to do. Colorado’s very diverse in appearance and opportunity.”
  • “Block breaks is another reason. They are by far my favorite part of the school. It’s really awesome we get that time.”
  • “People are really friendly and the culture is very not judgmental.”

To Not Attend

  • “I think it’s something they’re working on, but CC still does attract this hyper affluent class of people. Not to bash those people, because I think there’s a lot of them that are spectacularly interesting and cool people, but I think it can be isolating for the less affluent students.” [The median household income at Colorado College is $277,500 and 24% of students come from the socioeconomic top 1%.]
  • “I think by senior year, part of the nature of a small school is you might start to get kind of sick of being around the same people. I think Colorado Springs can feel a little bit of a small place.”
  • “If you’re trying to get away from athletes running everything don’t go to CC.”
