The Adams Experience
At Adams State, your educational journey isn’t bound by classroom walls. It spills over and blends with your extracurricular interests, student life activities, and the San Luis Valley community-at-large. We call it The Adams Experience.
On paper, it’s a framework for learning that incorporates evidence-based High Impact Practices in what you learn, how you learn, and how your learning is assessed. That means writing-intensive courses, the opportunity to do original research, collaborative and interdisciplinary projects, and bonding experiences with your peers.
But it also means discovering off-campus mentors and gaining valuable work experience through internships and volunteer efforts. As a champion of the San Luis Valley, our roots are deeply intertwined with a community that proudly supports our students in return.
Ultimately, The Adams Experience is neither a single moment, nor a checklist of events. It’s the entirety of your educational journey, a journey that connects what you learn to who you are and have the potential to become.
