I'm 22 years and thinking about moving to Colorado, but before I'm sure that I want to move there for school I want to ask what is it like living in Colorado? How are minorities there treated.?

Denver area is very multi-cultural. One of the most in the middle of country. Further out less diverse but probably average or better on tolerance, interaction, imo.


Check out other threads for general info and / or focus on this subject by browsing or using search tool. Or ask more specific questions.

Gambino, you should follow the good advice that WhitewaterVol gave you in your other threat "Can I Still be an Engineer". Take whatever basic courses you need at a community college in the state where you live, then you can transfer to a four-year school and save a ton of money. Check out in-state versus out-of-state tuition for the four-year schools where you live now. Cost of Living in Colorado is very high, and you should compare housing, tuition, food, etc. costs in your home state.

Worried about how minorities are treated should be the least of your worries.

It varies among the millions of people living throughout the state. Some love it, some hate it, some are okay with it. Same goes for the minorities question. Some get by very well, some are judged and biased, some do okay with no issues one way or another.

You should be more specific, and also visit to see matters firsthand. None of know you, your background and history, and where you might live and what you might encounter.

P.S. If you use language like "be trippin" (as in your user name), you find yourself very out of place here. Culture and racial diversity are not as extensive and varied as in other states.

Colo Spgs with it high military population are very accepting. Pueblo with its college expansion is becoming more accepting. Schools in any of these or any of the above listed major cities would be fine with minority population. There certainly are smaller schools in more remote areas to consider as well, it all boils down to what you can swing for COL expenses and desired degree programs in concert with presonal experiences and recreation activities desired.

Like most places in the country, if you work hard, keep your nose down, treat others with respect and obey social norms, you will have no problem in Colorado. Are you coming from South Carolina? Make sure you understand the weather and high cost of living here.
