An Education System That’s Second to None
As you may have noticed, Colorado continues to rank at the top of the nation’s “Best of” lists, and our student body is no exception. Ranked among the most educated states in the country, 38 percent of Coloradans have at least a bachelor’s degree, the second highest college attainment rate in the country, and 14 percent hold a graduate or professional degree.
Access to top-tier universities and programs, and one of the highest per capita concentrations of federal science, research and engineering facilities in the country, is one of the leading reasons why brilliant minds choose Colorado. Add to that our 300 days of sunshine and ability to head to the mountains for a much needed break from studying, and it’s easy to see why these students make their roots here – eventually becoming our valued employees.
