Overall a good experience. Met some lifelong friends here and have learned a lot already.

You (or at least I) don't hear much of partiers much at all, which is awesome. I detest them. :D

Financial aid is always a pain. And I find it unnecessary for them to base aid off your parents' earnings. What do their earnings matter if my parents are not paying for my college?? I AM.

Teachers are at a very good level of strictness. They give students freedom while not letting the important things slide.

I don't live on campus

NO FOOTBALL TEAM. WHY. I would be ecstatic if we got a football team! I don't care about any of the other sports on campus. I would participate in cheerleading if it wasn't such a ridiculously huge time commitment.

Expensive for both on campus and off campus living.
College Student 2013-12-07T08:06:36Z
I am not yet out of gen-ed courses, but am excited to get into classes more closely related to my major.
College Student 2013-12-07T08:06:36Z
Professors are mostly very good. Nothing to complain about.

Health & Safety:
I couldn't feel any safer. Any worries are based on me, not the safety provided by the campus.

Guys & Girls:
I see super attractive guys everywhere I look! Most dress well, only thing you have to deal with are the stupid party boys who will eventually drop out and do a trade.

Lots of variety and very close
College Student 2013-12-07T07:55:50Z
Lots of variety all year round but very rarely uncomfortable
College Student 2013-12-07T07:50:17Z
Food places close much too early. Prices are a bit high and options are strictly american foods with zero variety. Quality is mostly poor and vegetarian options are ALMOST nonexistent. The few foods that I actually do like are delicious, but thats the thing: they are few.

Permits are hundreds of dollars and it's ridiculously difficult to find a spot both on or off campus. Desperately need more parking lots/garages.
College Junior 2013-11-06T22:20:55Z
There are lots of apartments and subleted houses in the areas. The landlords are typical, they just expect you to pay and not damage their property. As long as I pay on time I never hear from my landlord.

Once again if you don't have a car or a ride this will be difficult. Everything is really spread out in this town. Your best options if you don't have a car and live on campus are the parties in the cragmoor neighborhood.
College Junior 2013-11-06T22:17:25Z
There are parties, but mostly off campus. Also weed is recreation-ally legal now so people are definitely doing it, but not right out in the open.
College Junior 2013-11-06T22:15:09Z
All the professors are really cool and do a great job. There are some that are more challenging than others, but they do a good job of keeping it fun and engaging.

There's a lot of good restaurants in Colorado Springs, but if you don't have a vehicle it will be difficult to get to many of them.

I am not sure about the policies that affect those who live on campus since I have never lived in the dorms or apartments. The strictness of the administration is about average. If you do something wrong depending on what it is you might get a second chance to correct it without repercussions. All the faculty have been very friendly and easy to get along with.

The permits are very expensive and so is the metered parking. They offer free spaces and a shuttle to those lots, but it's far from class so you have to arrive at least 20 minutes before class at the lot so you can make it on time. Also even if you buy a permit finding a spot to park on campus is a nightmare so in some ways it's not worth the money since you can find a spot a bit easier at the free lot if you go to the furthest one away. Parking here is a big issue, but they are building a new parking garage so hopefully that will be done soon!

The campus is very clean and easy to walk to all your classes. There isn't a lot of green space, but it is Colorado so that's to be expected. The library is fantastic! It offers a myriad of resources, tutorials, and help for whatever you need. The student center has multiple activities every week and there's always something happening on campus.

There's always a free computer to use in the library or one the computer labs of either variety. The printing is ok, you are giving an initial stipend, but if you do a lot of printing on campus then expect to pay to print. I haven't had much trouble with the network on campus except the wireless is pretty slow sometimes and used to kick me off frequently or take a long time to connect. I mainly use one of their desk tops while at school and that has never caused me any issues.

Colorado Springs provides the best of both worlds: plenty to do for outdoor enthusiasts as well as a cultural arts scene in the downtown district.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
