Spring Valley was once ranch land worthy of any cinematic western movie. Now it's a place of learning, exploration and transformation.
Join a campus of 1500. Some are pursuing their passion of photography and design, veterinary medicine, nursing or outdoor education. Others are building a strong foundation taught by attentive faculty and will be well prepared for their next steps.
Don't be fooled by affordable, low tuition — academics are rigorous, teachers are caring and facilities are technologically savvy. And Spring Valley may be the most beautiful place you'll ever live.
Outside you'll find:
- Gates Soccer Park, five regulation fields bordering the campus
- 220-acre Veterinary Farm with large and small animals
- 18-hole Disc Golf Course to challenge your skills and clear your mind. The course is set to open for the season June 1, 2019.
The James C. and Connie L. Calaway Academic Building houses most of the campus' classrooms and labs. The Calaway Building is also home to the New Space Theater and the Theatre degree program, hosting theater and music performances through the year.
From the X-games and concerts in Aspen to surfing (yes, surfing) at the Colorado River water park in Glenwood Springs, the Roaring Fork Valley is a vibrant and diverse mountain community.
