Transportation: RTD doesn't have a rail location anywhere near my place so it's almost smarter to just drive instead

3 College Student

Parking: I feel the students pay enough for fees and tuition and at times RTD is not an option I don't feel paying for parking is a good idea, but hey whatever right

Athletics: The track team does not even have their own track!

4 College Junior

Transportation: I have to walk about a mile from the bus station downtown, but this is a commuter school and if you can take the light rail it is great.

Scholarships: I constantly have to turn in the same form every semester which has been a big hassel, but other then that it is been a smooth process.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are emergency phones located on campus, but the campus is open to anyone and is located right in the heart of Downtown Denver so you always need to be cautious.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I would say there is more diversity at Metro than there is at other Colorado universities. However, majority of students at MSUD are white. I see a handful of women wearing hijabs which is diverse in my opinion. I see a few people out listening to religious promoters out on campus and I haven't seen any public outrages about them. The economic backgrounds of students are very diverse.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: MSU Denver is not very social, at all. If you want to make friends you have to join clubs and communities because it is hard to make friends when majority of students do not live on campus. The students both guys and girls dress pretty causally for the most part and everyone is pretty independent and I think its because most students are friends with only a few people on campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Being located downtown comes with the safety precautions that must be taken while in a city, but either than that I do not have any concerns. I would suggest taking daytime classes because being in the city at night is always going to be less safe than it is during the day. I have never been on campus and night though, so do not take my word to heart. However, I always feel safe on the campus. I have been going to the Auraria campus for almost a year now and I walk by myself all the time and I have never felt threatened or unsafe.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid department at MSU Denver has been very helpful for me. The department is very quick and efficient, I never feel lost and they are good at guiding you to the next steps you have to take until your finaid application/enrollment is completed. It also has friendly service which is a plus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Student housing is expensive, housing in denver is expensive. So most students live at home, or off the grid like aurora, arvada, etc. Where housing is more affordable but the commute is greater.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The only conflict I've seen on campus is the guy who stands ontop of a box in between the physical education building and the tivoli and preaches about god. People get extremely upset and throw things or yell awful things at him. At those times thats pretty much only when I see the campus police. It's not as racially diverse as I thought, most classes are all caucasian students. Every now and then I meet someone of a different background though. Everyone is politically diverse and most everyone is accepting towards gays and transgender. However the only booths or flyers being passed out are religious oriented or Green Peace affiliated. Political,sexual,and racial issues are hush hush.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The normal policies exist, no dealing, purchasing, using, etc. on campus or you are held responsible in the form of fines, expulsion, suspension. etc. But again it is a commuter school in downtown Denver so basically nothing is happening on campus its all off campus or in the student housing.
