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.

Guys & Girls:
Most of the people at the school are good looking, well groomed, and dress nicely. There's a lot of social events and people are very friendly.

It was a straightforward and typical admission process. I think that the best things to keep in mind would be to keep your grades high if you're thinking about going into a Letters & Arts degree since there's a lot of competition in this area it's important to distinguish yourself from the crowd. Also start looking into relevant volunteer work or clubs related to your major.

I would like to do an internship since that would make me a better candidate for employment and help me learn more. I know there are a lot of research assistant positions open for students here.
College Junior 2013-11-06T21:49:24Z
The weather is difficult to forecast, especially in this area. However I think there are better solutions to closing the campus in inclement weather. It seems like so far the system is just set up for an early morning or nothing cancellation method and that doesn't work well here since sometimes it can get a lot worse or better by afternoon. I know that after the campus has already been declared closed that it would be very difficult to reopen, my biggest complaint is when I feel like I am endangering myself and others by coming to class when the campus has been kept open in horrible conditions.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:30:09Z
Don't know and don't care, like much of the campus.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:29:05Z
In the green area of the campus. It is moving toward being more sustainable every year. And as of now is easily one of if not the most in CO.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:25:28Z
It is colorado. Colorado Springs is quite religious. People aren't outright rude. Just opinionated.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:22:37Z
Hav not had one.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:21:55Z
The shuttles are hit and miss, and public transportation in this city is fairly slim anyways.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:20:28Z
Most of the housing in close proximity to campus is full, be prepared to drive 10 minutes or so.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:18:59Z
Transferring here was a great decision, close to home, great environment, and decently challenging academics.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:18:04Z
It can get windy walking from class to class. Classes are not cancelled often, even if weather is "poor."
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:17:18Z
If you live on campus,having a laptop is not an absolutely necessity, but would be helpful.There are computer labs in nearly every building, and wifi is available everywhere.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:14:00Z
The staff is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.
College Junior 2013-11-06T07:13:12Z
All of the professors are knowledgeable and accessible.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
