The small size makes CTX very unique! I’ve been able to get to know all my classmates and professors and that’s really helped me succeed in college.

Senior, Behavioral Science

My hometown is Colorado Springs, CO.
As if my academics don’t keep me busy enough, I thought I would fill my spare time with some extracurricular activities at CTX, including Intramural Sports, Psychology Book Club, President’s Freshman cabinet (2005-06), and Student Center and Commuter Activities Coordinator (best job ever)!
The highlight of my time at CTX was definitely my first two years of living in the dorm. They were amazing! I was blessed with wonderful roommates, made lots of friends, and actually enjoyed every aspect of “dorm life!”
I think CTX is unique because the small size makes CTX very unique! I’ve been able to get to know all my classmates and professors and that’s really helped me succeed in college.
The professor that impacted me the most was Dr. Scarnier (psychology) because she has taught the most interesting psychology courses and really helped me plan for graduate school.
