Student Life Banner

CNCC students have an amazing array of ways to get into life at college. The CNCC community is small enough to nurture life-long friendships yet big enough to provide relevant, high quality opportunities for leadership and growth.

Residence Life

Campus life in Rangely centers around life after class. We have a great dining hall and three residence halls on our Rangely campus. Our residence life staff does a world-class job of making students feel at home, while creating events that foster deeper friendships and growth. Our Craig campus is more of a traditional community college so campus life focuses more on weekend events and evenings.

Clubs & Organizations

Being involved throughout campus is an important aspect to students at Colorado Northwestern Community College. Students have the opportunity to be apart of different clubs & organizations.

Athletics at CNCC

Throughout the semester, students can enjoy watching Spartan athletics compete in Baseball, Softball, Women's Basketball, Men's Basketball, Rodeo, Soccer (on Craig campus) or Volleyball.

Outdoor Recreation Program 

Living in Northwestern Colorado has its perks and Colorado Northwestern takes advantage of this by boasting a robust outdoor program where students can find opportunities to raft world-class rivers, ice climb on campus, play disc golf, study the meaning of petroglyphs, learn teamwork on the largest challenge course in the area, and mountain bike in some of the best high-mountain desert environments in the Southwest.
