Alex's answers to common questions

Describe the students at your school.

few Gays, few Blacks, a handful of Jews, mostly white upper class kids who would otherwise go to east coast schools similar to CC.

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

I hate colorado springs, but CC has been a perfect match for me. People work a lot harder and show a lot more responsibility than I would expect at college, but theres a crowd for everyone. Everyone gets out of class at noon, meaning that there is a huge amount of free time spent just hanging out.

quite

What are the academics like at your school?

Every professor knows your name even if they don't always show it. They're there to help you learn how to learn on your own, not do all the work. Office hours vary, and I much prefer teachers who draw smaller crowds, meaning I like unpopular professors.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

People definitely party, but not everyone needs to. Frats not huge, but frattish culture is on the rise. Fun is becoming more preppy rather than exciting. The school is definitely getting less distinct these days.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I wish we could lift up the school and put it elsewhere, it's a terrible town. I also wish that the type of person that was admitted when I was a freshmen were still around. Most kids at CC right now are very cookie-cutter and unimpresive. The administration is completely zombie, as it is at most schools, entirely too politically correct and obnoxious about common sense things, while coming to take action in roundabout and ineffective ways.
