Colorado Mesa University

Student Life

Nestled in the beautiful Grand Valley of Western Colorado, the University experience comes complete with an outdoor lifestyle that's second to none. Our backyard is a haven for outdoor recreation including hiking, biking, rock climbing, kayaking, rafting and snowboarding — with Aspen, Telluride, and Moab all just a short drive away.

Things don't slow down on-campus either. We have built new athletic fields, new classroom buildings and a phenomenal new Recreation Center that has the only competition 50-meter indoor swimming pool in Western Colorado.

If you like a little play mixed in with your academics, look no further. In addition to our more than 160 clubs and organizations, we also are developing new sports programs including lacrosse, cycling, skiing, hockey and rodeo to go along with our 24 NCAA Division II intercollegiate teams and an extensive intramural program. Student Life is here to make sure you make the most of your education as a Maverick.
