Colorado Christian University (CCU) – ranked in the top two percent of colleges nationwide for its core curriculum and named one of the fastest-growing universities in the United States – is continuing to meet and exceed the needs of its student body with the culmination of $170 million worth of new facility construction nearing completion in Lakewood.

The five facilities include Leprino Hall (an academic building named for Terry Leprino), Yetter and Rockmont Halls (apartment-style residence halls named for former University President Archie Yetter and a heritage institution), the Anschutz Student Center (named for Philip Anschutz), and the soon-to-be-completed Armstrong Center (named for former Colorado State Senator and past CCU President Bill Armstrong).

The newest addition to the campus, the Armstrong Center, continues to highlight CCU as a world-class training ground for future business, church, and world leaders. The 60,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility will allow the school of music to return to CCU’s main campus, house an expanded library, feature a 500-seat performance theater, and will be home to the University’s first dedicated chapel.

In addition to the new additions to the Rocky Mountain Region’s flagship Christian university, another $45 million worth of new construction is anticipated in the coming years. The projects will include a new science and engineering building and new athletic facilities.

“Colorado Christian University is providing an alternative to ‘elite’ colleges and universities, especially as we continue to attract students and families who want to become part of a university that stresses leadership and innovation ahead of social agendas and ‘groupthink,’” said CCU President Eric Hogue. “Our new facilities provide our student body and staff with a campus that not only helps them to achieve their personal and professional goals, but equips them to impact the world with grace, truth and moral clarity. Most Americans say that higher education is failing students, not developing them. CCU is the alternative to that opinion.”

Founded in 1914, Colorado Christian University is the flagship Christian university in the Rocky Mountain region.
