Celebrating Colorado Springs' Sesquicentennial

Colorado Springs fades from an old picture into a new picture with the UCCS campus appearing

 

UCCS is proud to call Colorado Springs home. Now the 39th largest and most desirable city to live in the United States, Colorado Springs arose from a humble but meaningful beginning in 1871. Now through July 31, 2021 the Colorado Springs community will embark on a communitywide celebration of our city’s rich history, a celebration in which UCCS will take part.
