The Colorado College (familiarly known as CC) is a private liberal arts college in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was founded in 1874 by General William Palmer. The college enrolls approximately 2,000 undergraduates at its 90 acre (36 ha) campus, 70 miles (100 km) south of Denver in Colorado Springs, with a view of the Rocky Mountains to the west. Colorado College is known for its unusual "block plan", which divides the year into eight academic terms; a single class is taken during each term. Colorado College is affiliated with the Associated Colleges of the Midwest. Most of CC's sports teams are in the NCAA division III, with the exception of nationally competitive division I teams in men's hockey and women's soccer. The current President of the college is Richard Celeste, former Governor of Ohio, ambassador to India, and Director of the Peace Corps.
