I overall like colorado mountain college. It is a very down to earth school with lots of great teachers. I do wish they offered more degrees but since they don't I will have to transfer to another school for a radiology degree. I really like the hours of the classes because they fit in very well with my work schedule since I have to pay for my own college. They have a variety of options to choose from such as early morning classes or classes in the evening if you work during the day. Overall I think colorado mountain college is a great school for all ages and types of schedules that people need to work around.
