Colorado College is a private liberal arts college in the United States, funded in 1874. It follows the unique “block plan” where students study one subject at a time, which allows for more lab time, research and study in the field, more intensive learning experiences, and fewer distractions.
The unique location in the beautiful state of Colorado, as well as the strong Outdoor Education Program, allows students to enhance their leadership skills, gain a sense of stewardship, and engage in self-discovery through experiential opportunities in the outdoors. Many study-abroad programs ensure that learning moves beyond classroom and expands through and beyond the Rocky Mountain West. Colorado College students can choose from more than 80 majors, minors, and specialized programs, or create an Independently Designed Major.
Among Colorado College alumni, there are 68 recipients of Watson Fellowship, 31 recipients of Fulbright Fellowships, 21 Peace Corps volunteers (currently serving), and 18 Olympians with a total of 9 medals.
