CC's block plan is an incredibly innovative approach to academics, one that facilitates dedication and success in classes that are taken one at a time. Few other schools offer this alternative to the semester plan that allows students to fully focus on a single subject matter and study it in depth. The small student body translates to small class sizes, enabling a more comfortable and intimate setting in which students can get to know one another and their professors. There are also many on-campus resources and activities that provide students a nice break from their studies. Additionally, CC's location at the foothill of the Rocky Mountains enables students to take advantage of Colorado's beautiful scenery.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Though there are many positive aspects of attending Colorado College, it remains a Predominantly White Institution and is attended by a large percentage of students in the top 1%. This may create a feeling of exclusion or "imposter syndrome" for students from different racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

College Colorado provides a lot of financially accessible opportunities, particularly when it comes to the outdoors. Their Outdoor Education department had allowed me to hike, bike, and ski some amazing places at an insanely low/ no cost.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Since the school has a lot of high-income students attending, you might find that social class can create exclusive social circles. Despite this, I've found some amazing friends that I met through the bridge scholar program, so don't let it deter you too much.
