4 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a little bit of everything for everyone on campus. Fast food staples, sandwiches, bagels, salads, Mexican food, and coffee shops as well.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live 10 minutes away from campus in a house. I ride my bike to school and it's awesome.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: It's bad because this is a commuter campus.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I mean, campus is literally IN DOWNTOWN DENVER, so yeah… there's tons of great options.

3 College Junior

Administration: I have never been in a position where the strictness or the administration was demonstrated, so honestly, I'm not sure how well they deal with it.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Unless you fit a certain role, you will not receive hardly any aid. It's very disappointing.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: All campus housing is technically "off-campus", but they are within walking distance are provide great living spaces for college students of all ages.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I rated off campus housing as highly as possible. Think about it like this. The Denver RTD (public transportation) branches out to many of Denver's satellite cities in the form of busses and trains. This fact makes it possible for a student to live in a few other large cities; Golden, Lakewood, Aurora, Thornton, Alameda, Englewood, etc. There are so many housing options that it's amazing. Being able to live up to 45 minutes from the school in almost any direction with FREE GUARANTEED TRANSPORTATION provided by the school RTD pass makes for the best deal.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: This school is more disappointing than my tiny high school was when it comes to parties. I heard that there was nothing on campus or around campus before I began attending but damn. There's seriously nothing going on unless you already know people at the Lofts and feel like making the trek. Or you feel like blowing money at a club or a bar. Saying that downtown makes up for the school's lack of social excitement isn't relevant to students under the age of 18 or those who don't want to spend much.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: This is a bit of a foolish thing to review when the school is in one of the largest cities in the US. Food? Duh Denver has food.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The security is good. Having campus security, the Auraria Police, and the Denver Police is a huge relief. The campus feels like the safest place in Denver.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: It took all spring and summer of my Senior year in High School as well as a portion of my Freshman semester to receive my financial aid. And no, before anyone thinks it, I did not wait until the last minute to submit my FAFSA.

College Freshman

Campus Food: I'll never eat food out of a truck and I worked further into downtown than the campus itself was so I usually bought food elsewhere after class. The school itself doesn't have a meal plan. Campus Village does but STAY AWAY FROM CAMPUS VILLAGE. The food is edible during the most busy times a year for parent visits. Other than that you simply will not want to eat anything that they make.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The mandatory Campus Village housing for transfer students under 21 and freshman under 21 is ridiculously overpriced. In some cases (not too rare) I had friends who were paying over a thousand each per month for a two bedroom apartment with 3 people per room. The other housing in the area is a much better value. Also, the food plan and cafeteria of Campus Village had quite a few people losing weight (YUCK!!!). I ended up leaving school for a semester and waited out the residency time so that I could return to CU in the fall and not empty my parent's wallet on such poor housing.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I live in stapleton and love it

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I''m sure it's great. I live in Nevada, work full-time, and have five children. lol

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I am in a online program and live in Nevada.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: I love my online program.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid office staff are very helpful.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It's a commuter campus, so sports aren't important to me and probably not to a lot of students since many have jobs already and even families.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Since we're so close to downtown, there are plenty of restaurants on 16th street mall, only 3 blocks away.

4 College Junior

Administration: Since most, if not all students are adults there's not much that needs to be cracked down on. The emergency alert system is pretty prompt when it comes to alerting everyone about assaults/gropings and emergency weather.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Our school is more of a commuter school so I've never even heard of a party on campus and I probably wouldn't be around to go to one after 5pm anyway.

College Junior

Scholarships: I haven't applied for any scholarships although from what I've seen there are a lot of options.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Since our campus is so small we can't really have a lot of eating options, but I especially like when there are food trucks. Especially Little India's.
