Nightlife: Nightlife? The "nightlife" at RMCAD usually exists only during midterms and finals, and only because everyone is in the labs using the cintiqs burning the midnight oil to get their projects done on time. Other than that and the occasional gallery, there isn't a nightlife at school that I've ever seen.

Nightlife: Considering the proximity to bars/clubs/galleries, the scene is a good one. The school is close to downtown so there is always something to do.

Nightlife: We don't have on campus dorms so when I am talking about parties I am referring to where I live now.

The regency is awesome with night life not ever a dull night.

Nightlife: Denver Is Good for 21+ Only – The 18+ options are terrible, but there are usually house parties going on if you know the right people. For 21+ there's plenty to do downtown. If you're looking for something fun to do at night I'd say go up to Boulder, which isn't a bad drive. There's usually more going on Thurs-Sat.

Perhaps, the biggest party on campus is the annual Music and Art Festival. Local music groups set up a stage right in the quad for a day of music, art, and food. There have also been pig roasts and free barbecue, beef, and veggie burgers to welcome incoming freshmen. Freshmen really have it best on campus, since there are activities throughout the fall semester, both on and off campus, to get them familiar with the Denver area and the College. Of course, whether it's "Capture the Flag" or cookie decorating on campus, the rest of campus doesn't hesitate to join in! There are a plethora of bars and clubs downtown in the 16th Street area. The main hot spots are Grizzly Rose, The Church, and Tracks.

Really, the parties on campus are more of social gatherings to promote unity at the College and usually have some kind of association to art. If you happen to pick up an apartment at Concordia or Diamond Head (where the majority of students live), then there are regular movie night get-togethers. The Grizzly Rose is the country-western nightclub of Denver—period. The Church was voted the nation's top dance club two years in a row. If you are into the LGBT scene, you should head over to Tracks Night Club, which boasts the biggest dance floor in Denver.
