The type of student who should attend UCCS is highly outgoing, ambitious, adventure-seeking, and disciplined. Rocky Mountain views exist everywhere on campus, keeping the student constantly planning their next expedition. Without the hustle-bustle of the UC Denver and Boulder locations, UC Springs offers the ideal environment for those committed to furthering themselves as individuals, while taking their down time seriously! Garden of the Gods, Red Rocks, and other major hiking destinations go well in tandem with all of the best resorts in Colorado, many less than 2 hours drive away!

The type of student who is driven, dedicated, and willing to participate in all the wonderful activities the school has to give should apply to UCCS.

A student who is dedicated, not afraid of work, and preferably socially aware should go to this school. It's a very liberal campus and they do a lot to help the environment with water resourceful laundry, compost and recycle bins are more common than regular trash. The education is challenging, but fair and professors care about what you have to say.

UCCS promotes diversity, and students of all backgrounds are welcome. There is not one type of person who will succeed; anyone who is willing to be proactive in their education and do the required work will reap the benefits. As a side note, the sprawling campus is exposed to the elements, so students must be adaptable to the ever-changing Colorado weather! (Hint: dress in layers!)
