Surf the Springs
Colorado Springs is protected by two natural barriers: the Rocky Mountains to
the west and Palmer Divide (Monument Hill) to the north. Average high
temperature in the summer months in Colorado Springs is in the mid 80's (28 or
so Celsius), with average lows in the 50's (10's Celsius). Frequent but short
afternoon showers bring two to three inches of rainfall per month.
We typically have very nice weather for the conference, but it has been
known to rain. So we recommend a light rain jacket just in case.
It was a comfortable environment. I'm glad everything was close together.
I couldn't have thought of or picked a better place.
The food was absolutely the best!
Very beautiful campus.
Food was good and abundant.
Dining, classrooms, social areas were all very good. Accommodations were also formidable for a college dorm.
Monday and Tuesday night dinners were great! Thanks!
The new apartments were great. Better than expected.
Apartments are MUCH better than the dorms. Thanks for the upgrade!
Better than cafeteria food from my college days!
