    Boasting the highest summits of the Rocky Mountains, 11 national forests, 41 national wilderness areas, and an amazing landscape of canyons, rivers, valleys, Colorado is home to over 150 colleges and universities. The majority of colleges in Colorado are located around the Denver metro area, which is the largest city and the state’s capital. There you’ll find the University of Denver, the Art Institute of Colorado, and the Metropolitan State College of Denver, along with a variety of community colleges and career schools. Just north of the city you will find one of the best known schools in the state, University of Colorado, in the very hip town of Boulder. Other well known schools include Colorado State University, University of Northern Colorado, and Colorado Mesa University. The federally funded United States Air Force Academy also calls Colorado home, located in Colorado Springs.
