My school is unique in that it backs a large bluff popular to hikers and faces Pikes Peak, which each building has a perfect view of from somewhere inside. Additionally, each academic building has a unique piece of art either inside or outside of the building that classifies what the main educational focus of the building is. For example, the engineering building has a series of emormous blue poles outside it that are rumored to catch the light of the sunrise in such a way that a rainbow is created.


This school has a large number of students that live off-campus. They embrace this by having classes at all times of day and holding events speciffically for these commuter students.


Our school is very environmentaly aware. We recycle in every buidling, we have a building on campus that is 100{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} sustainable, and we compost in the cafeteria. Most of the students carry reusable water bottles and we have an Office of Sustainablility. There is an endowment being offered for a 3.7 million dollar environmental project proposal at the moment. Most of the people are conscious of the issue and collaborate together to work for this common cause.


It's much cheaper than a lot of other schools, but it has excellent engineering and pre-nursing programs. It's less expensive, but it still has excellent teachers and great classes. UCCS is also unique in that it's one of the most sustainable campuses in the nation. The two way flush toilets can be annoying, but they save a lot of money and water, which is totally worth it. The campus is also really beautiful, and they're always working to make it even better.


UCCS has numerous "colleges" within it. They include the Beth-El School of Nursing and Health Sciences, the College of Buisness and Administration, as well as the College of Engineering and Applied Science.

The average class size is 26, giving plenty of opportunity to know your professors.

What brought me to UCCS was honestly the dorms. All the other dorms I saw were one room with two beds and closets and a shared floor bathroom. The dorms at UCCS are all suites. When you walk in my room there is a common living room and private bathroom that is shared with four total roomates. We each have our own private bedrooms.
