• Becoming a Great University

    Great buildings don’t make great universities, but a great university requires great buildings.

    In October 2012, Colorado Christian University launched its Faith | Family | Freedom Campaign to redevelop our Lakewood campus, and to support our tremendous growth in student enrollment.

    We need to have the facilities and infrastructure crucial to educate and house our student population. In 2012, the University enrolled more than 1,000 traditional undergraduate students on our Lakewood campus, which was originally designed to accommodate 600 students. Today our enrollment is over 1,300 undergrads.

    Nearly five years into this campaign, the University has expanded its campus to 34 acres with the acquisition of adjacent land. Our first two new buildings, Leprino Hall (academic space) and Yetter Hall (student residence hall), were built to support this exceptional growth. And we are eagerly anticipating the completion of the Anschutz Student Center (dining, fitness, and common space) in summer 2017.

    In addition, several new construction projects are slated to begin soon, to provide immediate support in academic and residential space in order to meet the need presented with continued enrollment growth.

    We thank God for His extraordinary blessings and we continue to seek His guidance as we move forward. Please pray for wisdom and God’s favor as we forge ahead with construction plans and the continued growth of enrollment. Pray for our CCU students, faculty, and staff as they fulfill God’s purpose in their lives.

    And please consider giving to Colorado Christian University to help us advance. It is an outstanding opportunity, not just to educate students, but to build the Church, change our culture, and impact the world for Christ. God is at work at CCU — changing lives and making His grace and truth a reality in the world. Without faithful supporters, we could not do it.
