3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Being that we are a commuter college the Greek life is much harder. The closeness of all living together is lost along with the strict participation demands of an on campus sorority or fraternity.

Off-Campus Housing: Being that the campus is located in a major city, any sort of living near campus is outrageously expensive and very hard to find. Availability lists are nearly non existent and are month long waiting lists. Parking is also incredibly expensive unless it comes with your apartment but even then it's not that great.

Off-Campus Dining: Since we are so close to a city the off campus dining variety is endless, just depends on how far you want to walk. They have every price range and food style you can image. I have not asked about student discounts but that is a good thing for me to look into.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't feel this is a valuable question to be asking regarding college experience. This survey is supposed to be for a scholarship yet this question promotes drinking and partying. Maybe wording it better as a social scene rather than party scene would make it more valuable but asking students where the best parties are is incredibly unprofessional. What about those who don't drink or don't party, you are now singling them out yet had you said social scene that opens the door for museums, parks, painting classes, aerobics classes, etc. If this question was meant to entice students, it is going about it in all the wrong way, especially since most students coming to college are fresh out of high school making them under 21 thus you are now not only promoting drinking but underage drinking.

Administration: I feel they are more worried about who is parking without paying than they are with patrolling campus, especially at night. With it being so close to the light rail, the danger level rises because of non student commuters.

Scholarships: I was an out of state resident for three semesters because I missed the deadline for in-state registration by a week or two which was incredibly frustrating since that's thousands of dollars I had to spend out of pocket and in additional loans. I wish they had been more informative on the process and reached out to transfer students and new students they noticed were being charged out of state tuition as their deadline drew near to become a resident.

Campus Food: The food court is down in the basement and is almost like a mall food court. The food options are not very healthy and the variety is limited. I would like to see more unique options other than McDonalds, Subway, or Taco Bell. The lack or healthy alternatives around campus is frustrating too, there is only the food court in the Tivoli and Einstein's Bagels, as a gluten intolerant student my options are incredibly limited on what I can eat while at school.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: This is a commuter college we do not have housing on campus

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Personally, I am not in the position to be able to afford living off campus downtown. I have heard great things though. The locations are still convenient, the landlords are reasonable, and the buildings are well maintained.

Off-Campus Dining: Being in the heart of downtown and minutes away from other big areas of Denver, the off campus food selection is definitely something to boast about. There is so much variety. There are classier, more expensive places, but there are also more laid back, inexpensive choices as well. So many of the restaurants are always unique and have good environments and even better service. If that isn't something you are into, there is still the option of a good selection of chain restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I have never not felt safe on campus. The administration does a good job of keeping everything running smoothly.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: As far as on campus parties, I am not familiar with the scene. However, downtown is always a good time. Between the Pepsi Center and Coors field, there is almost always a sporting event going on. If that isn't your style, then the vast selection of bars and comedy clubs is sure to be enough to satisfy anyone's partying style. The nightlife is great!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have had problems with the financial aid process going on for a year now. I have not been able to get my loans or access my grants, and it seems a new issue arises every time the last one is resolved. I have talked to many other students on campus who have also had similar problems.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Between the Tivoli, all of the vending machines, vendors in the classroom buildings, food trucks, and central location in downtown, the food option on campus couldn't be better. The quality of food on campus is excellent and there is something to appease everyone.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Never having lived on campus before, it is an exciting change! The amenities make coming home after a day of class so much more relaxing. I really appreciate having the study room and computers available to me. The location is extremely convenient, and cuts the cost and hassle of paying for and finding parking. Living with other students is also a perk. I am surrounding by people my age going through relatively the same chapter of life as I am.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's only bad over near the light rail on colfax, otherwise it's really safe. The health center sucks and doesn't accept most insurances.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is like no presence of greek life within the auraria campus.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The basketball team is supposed to be really good but no one ever goes to games.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is SO expensive to live in Denver, its not worth it

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Theres a ton of food downtown, but most of it is fairly expensive

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They don't really care what you do as long as you keep it pretty low-key.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There isn't a party scene, and everyone is pretty much a meth head.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I became ineligible last year because they failed to find the graduation date on my transcript until far after the due date of scholarship applications.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There aren't many options, but the Einsteins is your best bet.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing isn't an option, everything is several miles from campus.
