My experience at CU Denver has surpassed my expectations. I was terrified when I first started, but today I am completely in love with my classes, my teachers, my friends, and the overall campus! My favorite experiences so far have been the community events organized by the campus. The first week always consists of different activities and events everyday so that students can gather around the campus, get to know others, learn about clubs/activities, and get food and school themed clothes as well. My campus has a block party in Denver since it's right across the street where music and food is provided, along with tables and tents promoting all the clubs and organizations available on campus. These events continue throughout the year and make it fun and exciting to try new things.

My school has provided me with so many opportunities to network and through that I have found many new lifelong friends, along with wonderful mentors, research opportunities and many ways to get involved with clubs and leadership roles! If I could do it all again, I would not choose to go to another school.

CU Denver is (primarily) a commuter campus, located adjacent to downtown Denver. Many non-traditional undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate students attend degree programs here. It is great to be in the middle of downtown life, there are always many cool events and concerts to attend nearby. And even though you are in the middle of an urban area, you are also very close (~30 minute drive) away from the nearest hiking trails in the Rocky Mountains. Though, because this is a commuter campus many students go directly home or to work after classes. There is student housing, but it is not located in the middle of campus and there is not currently any greek life.
