2 College Junior

Campus Dining: No variety ever. Everything ends up tasting the same. Worst is that the chefs absolutely cross contaminate meat products in vegetarian dishes.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The common core science classes are the worst. The classes are 100 students and the science majors have to take the classes to get to further classes. They get less attention because all students have to take them. The labs are also irrelevant.

Registration is awful unless you are an honor student or student athlete.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm now living in off-campus apartment with my roommate with convenience public transportation and costly parking lot.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Denver is a city with a relatively smaller population in the metropolitan area, which makes it more difficult to look for optional off-campus dining places. Chinese foods are welcomed but a little bit expensive.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Fortunately my previous academic advisor is a Greek gentleman with courteous and accessible manner, and he is the chair of our department. Therefore Greek are totally respected in the area.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The recreation center of the university has lots of apparatus with high-standard swimming pool and hockey fields. Full-time students are free to enter the gym to build their bodies. We can also play basketball, volleyball and even badminton in most of the fields.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Immigration and academic exchanging made the university a place with mixture of various cultures and religions. Lots of students majored in engineering are coming from the mid-east, with their religion in Islam. I used to see them prostrate in pray, but I respect their faith even though I and most of my friend come from China, a country without national religion.

4 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: House parties to start the evening and local bars later at night. Very chill and fun environment.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
