My gal is a fulltime student, here's what I've put together:
It's a community college, with community college "professors" and community college expectations. Meaning, don't expect to get an amazing education. Honestly, I've written pretty much every paper/assignment for her or at least helped quite a bit, and with verrrrry little time and effort, she's gotten A's. It seems to me that if you show up consistently and turn in assignments, it's virtually impossible to fail.
However, there are some definite upsides.
1.) They have a parallel program along with the other CO state schools. Basically, you can get an associate's degree from CMC and when you're finished, you're able to transfer into any CO state school as a junior and they guarantee all of the credits will transfer. So, you can bypass the shitty 100 level classes that at a lot of schools will be held in auditoriums with a hundred or two people and have the small class size that is preferable for many people.
2.) If you establish in district residency, it's ridiculously cheap. Like, $50ish a credit cheap, which is fucking awesome. Basically, you could come play in the mountains, knock out fresh and soph years very inexpensively, and transfer to a better school and your degree will be a bit more respectable (and cheaper).
3.) There's definitely a limited selection of 4 year degrees available, but I have a buddy that is working towards some sort of outdoor degree. He's taken, for college credit mind you, OEC, mountaineering, etc. I think he's working towards outdoor/recreational therapy or something....basically he wants to open up a treatment/behavioral center for young guys that incorporates outdoor/survival/etc. principles. You wouldn't be able to get a degree like that very many places. So, if you want to work for a ski resort, hospitality, or something related to the outdoors, it could be a good fit for you.
