I absolutely love MSU Denver! My favorite part is the faculty, they have been such a blessing with their outstanding skills. They offer a helping hand, and their doors are always open when you need to get in touch with them. They care so much about their students, they go above and beyond to take care of them and guide them in the right direction. They make their students think by making them spend an appropriate time on their work outside of class in order to get them to really engage with the course work and retain the information they have learned throughout the semester. The class sizes are very reasonable, more intimate and the professors know everyone by name. The teaching styles of the professors really encourages optimal learning skills.. They make you think outside the box by relating topics to things you already know and love. Overall, MSU Denver has been such an amazing school and I would recommend it to anyone trying to not only earn a degree but to those who are interested in networking and having greater connections with their professors.

MSU Denver has the most amazing staff. They are determined to make a difference in the student's lives, not only with the material they teach but also with providing life lessons that help students succeed in the real world. The staff at MSU Denver provides professional, educated and enthusiastic professors with a passion in teaching. I've never had such helpful professors that are actually concerned with the education of each and every individual in their class. I would recommend MSU Denver to anyone!

Metropolitan State University is located in the heart of Denver, Colorado, which is a blessing to say the least. Transportation systems are all around and easily accessible. Not far from the school is Sports Authority field where the Denver Broncos play, and also nearby is Coors Field where the Rockies play. If sports engagements are not your thing, you can make your way to any number of hip hangouts, whether it's the highlands, uptown, larimer square, 16th street, etc. These streets are filled with the best restaurants and great shopping. One of the best things about being downtown is its proximity to the mountains, where you can hike, bike, climb, ski, snowboard, and enjoy many other beautiful adventures! Denver also has a great music scene, which must include experiencing at least one show at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
