Adams State University is a public university in Alamosa, Colorado. It is located in the San Luis Valley. The university's Adams State Grizzlies athletic teams compete under the auspices of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
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.
Our excellent academic programs guide students on the right path to a successful career. Adams State focuses on student experience and student outcomes. That focus has led us to the highest job placement rates of any institution our size in Colorado and the nation. Not only are our students getting jobs, but many of them are thriving in a rewarding career.
Your college experience goes beyond the classroom!
Getting involved and staying involved is the key to a great Grizzly experience. As a student, you’ll become part of an intimate community that welcomes everyone as they are and helps each other get ahead — academically, socially and professionally.
Adams State’s Co-Curricular Recreation and Engagement Office takes students beyond the classroom by giving students the skills to create a fulfilling future.
