Party With the Best, or Chill With the Rest! Regardless of which campus you attend, there are a variety of night clubs, bars and pubs within a short distance. Some of them in downtown Grand Rapids allow the under 21 crowd and are fairly decent. A couple of the pubs and bars have some pretty cool bands playing live music.

If the night clubs aren't really your thing there are movie theaters, mini-golf, bowling, and other activities that can be enjoyed with friends.

The dining hall within South Hall is a BUFFET! If that does not explain why the dining hall is awesome, then I shall go more in depth. There is a sandwich creation center, a main area that contains items like fries, burgers and other American food, while the two other centers have other food like fish, steak, pork roast and other goodies!

I am an online student of DU and I love it! The entire DU staff from my educational advisor, Financial Aid department, Library Staff, Tech support and Instructors are all very nice people. I have been taking classes online since 2008-2010 and I am returning to finish my BA degree in May 2013 graduating after 23 credits. I will apply for my MA after that in psychology.
