The best college I've toured so far!! Absolutely loved the school, the campus and dorms are amazing! Apartment style, not dorm style, so it feels more homey. All the students we met talked about how close the community was, which is a great thing to have on a college campus. Love the class size and how accessible the professors are. Heard good things about all the professors and how they interact with students. Food on campus was great, seems really delicious and healthy! Loved to hear of all the clubs, super excited to go to CCU and join some of them!

Colorado Christian University is an amazing university with a close-knit community, professors that genuinely care, and great academics! My parents both went there and now I get to experience it this fall. I love how much the professors care for each of their students. I am very dyslexic, and my professor helps me when I struggle to understand. The classes are amazing. 100% the best school for anyone looking for a good community!

Reayah - 02/01/2023

Overall, it's a great school. It's very safe, small to the extent that you get to know a lot of the student body and it's a nice little community, but not to the extent that there are no opportunities and everyone knows everything about you and your cat. Academically, it's challenging but really good and CCU offers many different courses for many different majors and minors. I'm a bio major but I've taken archaeology classes and forensic psychology classes for fun, to fill elective credits. There are things CCU can improve on, but I don't regret coming here.

Sonnie - 04/24/2021

I think Colorado Christian University is a very good school that allows their to freely express their Christian be!never without being uncomfortable or judged. Their instructors are well educated and have genuine concerns for their students. I am extremely glad that I found this school and I would gladly recommend it to any and everyone.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I had an opportunity to go back in time and rewrite my life from High School to now I would change only a few small things that would have made such a big difference. First and foremost I would never procrastinate! I have learned that the more you put things off the harder it is to get caught up. As the saying goes, “Play now, pay later; or pay now, play later.” When you graduate High School you transition into adulthood and responsibility. Make a decision to do something and stick with it; never ever give up! Keep you focus and stay strong in your faith. As an adult it is time to be responsible with finances as well. Save! Save! Save! College in an investment, no doubt, but an expensive one! In his conferences on financial freedom, Dave Ramsey always says, “Live like no one else, so you can LIVE like no one else!” No matter how you decide to pay for college it is important to have a plan. Do whatever you can to save money and be responsible with both your finances and life now, and reap the rewards later in life!

  3. Describe the students at your school.

    Classmates in high school were uncertain little individuals that were lost and confused in their place in the world and in school. I feel as adults and looking at the classmates in college you see more of stronger purpose and understanding of the direction they are headed and thier attitude towards school is more appreciated and acknowledged.

  4. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    The community and overall unity of the school are the hallmarks that I notice most. All have come together with a strong yearning for academic excellence but also learning abuot Jesus Christ. Not all people will agree with our beliefs, but if they come they cannot help but notice our sense of joy and togetherness that creates an enviroment where we can grow in all aspects, not just academically. With this kind of community, we can truly support each other and know one another. You won't be another face, you are you.

    Before I came to CCU I wish I had known how much more difficult college classes were then high school classes.

I took AP and Honors classes in high school, and not even those could prepare me for the work load I was about to encounter.

  15. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    I really have no idea about a stereotype. They offer both campus and on-line classes. I would guess that being an older student the campus classes would be filled with motivated young people with a desire to have a biblical based learning experience as well as good preparation for their chosen field of study. The on-line may be like me, already having a career and wanting to fulfill a lifelong dream with a new career.
