Student Life at Colorado Mountain College
Join the vibrant community on-campus and in our mountain towns
Life on campus is full. You’ll meet people from around the world and down the street. Clubs, events and mornings over coffee stimulate new ideas and energy. To get involved keep an eye on the calendar on your campus’s page. Or like the CMC Facebook page. Living on campus brings its own rewards. Check out Residence Halls.
Besides the on-campus community, you’ll find rich experiences off-campus. Our mountain communities are full of interesting people with energetic enterprises. Some have started companies to make outdoor gear, others create new media for national clients or work for sustainability in this region and beyond. Colorado Mountain College has many local partnerships that enhance your life and learning.
Connect in the classroom, residence hall room, student lounge or local coffee shop. It’s one more way that Colorado Mountain College helps you Climb Beyond!
