Colorado College is on an innovative Block Plan where students take one course at a time for three and a half weeks.
Average class size is 16 students. No class larger than 25 students.
The First Year Experience (FYE) program was designed to help incoming students enjoy and adjust to their first year at Colorado College and the Block Plan.
80% of students study abroad, and 100% of students participate in field study, including participation in domestic programs in various U.S. locations.
Innovation at CC sponsors The Big Idea; a pitch competition in which student teams have the opportunity to compete for seed funding to develop their ideas in business, non-profit, or social enterprise.
Recently renovated Charles L. Tutt Library, now the largest carbon nuetral library in north America, houses a data visualization lab and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) lab.
