College Sophomore

Nightlife: Not of drinking age and have not gone to clubs.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Lack of rule enforcement causes problems and can make housing difficult to handle.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Great variety of sports. Helpful for my college decision.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Some rules are hard to enforce because activities are done behind lock doors.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Sometimes has good food, but don't always cook meat thoroughly.

5 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Lots of different classes to choose from with some guidance help.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Bad things can happen anywhere. We can only be as prepared as we choose to be.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They are always doing some sort of community out reach and most are very low key.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Lots of diversity on campus and a lot of friendly people. Some idiots and jerks, but you can avoid them most of the time.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: its fun. Its kinda different from other colleges but i have gotten used to the college life and the people. I dont think i would like to transfer, even though cost of attendance is getting expensive.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: its denver, its pretty chill

4 College Junior

Majors: I am a biochemistry major and i love it. The science department is very small since the school is known for the business school, so you get to known your classmates and teachers really well. Since we are so small, we get a lot of support for careers and advising. However, because of the size, we dont always get funding and it can get kinda expensive.

3 College Junior

Majors: I don't have an internship yet, but from what i have heard, internships student get around school or through the school are pretty good in terms of pay and networking

3 College Junior

Athletics: I dont know much about athletic at this school

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Its a very white rich school. boys and girls all seem nice but there is some race discrimination.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: housing is really expensive but very convenient to the school. Since the school is in the city, parking is very hard to find and housing doesn't always have their own parking

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Scholarships are a pain to get, same as anywhere else.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Lots of fit people on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Games are fun. Tailgates are better

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campo is everywhere. they just don't do that much.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: We have a lot of policies... but there doesn't seem to be much enforcement. There's some, but everyone knows that drinking and drug use especially goes on in many of the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants nearby and tons of options to choose from. Most take Flex (student "cash") and even have student employees.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There are many opportunities for involvement within my major. For example we have the Liberal Arts Advantage program and the Student Advisory Club. These organizations allow leadership positions plan events among the arts and humanities department.

Students generally enjoy their time at DU and are content staying for four years. Classes are interesting, professors are friendly, and the campus is in the middle of a growing, energetic city. Social life at DU is varied and engaging, and students often say the best part of their time at DU has been the memories and friends they’ve made.

Some students complain that DU lacks diversity, and they say that the campus is too small, there’s not enough school spirit, and it’s too expensive. Some can’t wait to get away on the weekends to go party or attend football games at CU Boulder or CSU. Others are looking for more of an academic challenge in their college careers. DU offers a nice balance of academia and partying. If you’re looking to dedicate your college years solely to developing your career and learning as much as you can, DU probably isn’t the place for you. If you want to learn, but also want to have some fun in the process, DU might be the perfect fit.
