University of Northern Colorado

University of Northern Colorado

The University of Northern Colorado is the perfect university for students looking for professors who bring research results and opportunities to the classroom, rigorous academic choices from more than 100 undergraduate and 100 graduate programs, a friendly student population of 12,000, and a tree-lined campus located between the Rocky Mountains and the plains of eastern Colorado. Whether students want to be Broadway performers, NFL trainers, or NASA scientists, they can travel in the footsteps of those who have gone before them or chart their own courses as UNC Bears.

At UNC, it’s personal.

What does that even mean?

It means that from the moment you first step foot on campus, UNC is about you.

You'll choose a major or two, or maybe design your own. You'll choose clubs to join, classes to take, friends to make, events to attend. You'll find support systems to help you through your toughest classes and your hardest moments of growth. You'll decide what classes you love most, and you'll start working with those professors on research or applied projects to build up your resume before you ever cross the stage at graduation.

Maybe you'll get in the lab and research how to slow down cancer cells. Or whether "music deserts" are a thing. Maybe you'll start teaching and mentoring in a local classroom, or land a starring role in a professional theatre, or build a website for a nonprofit, or manage a $2 million financial portfolio.

You pick.

It's a lot of work. But there's a big payoff.

For some, that payoff is a career on Broadway. For some, it's a job as an athletic trainer with an NFL team. For some, it's an engineering job at Apple or Boeing or Google. Want to work for Merrill Lynch? NASA? The United States Olympic Committee? It's been done, and it can be done again. Want to blaze your own trail? UNC will set you up to do that, too.

At UNC, it's personal. Because it's your future we're talking about.
