Colorado College

While in Colorado Springs consider planning a visit at Colorado College, a private liberal arts university first founded in 1874.

Regardless of whether you are a prospective student or not, this is a great campus to visit due to the onsite Fine Arts Museum as well as the fun athletics and campus recreation options available.

Your group can set up a private visit or attend the Summer Open Campus in July or Fall Open House in September and October. During your visit, you can set up admission meetings, meet with a professor, tour residence halls, eat on campus, and get a direct view of campus life.

You might want to meet a coach, take in a campus event, or just relax and admire our beautiful mountain view. Your visit might include trying out the Block Plan and residential life by attending a class and staying in a residence hall.
