I LOVE it at DU! The vibe is outdoorsy, laid-back, yet hardworking. The location is ideal, as it is near the mountains and close to the city, which opens up many opportunities for the students. Although the main demographic of DU is wealthy Caucasians, all students are open-minded and driven for success. Even with small class sizes, i am disappointed in the quality of professors in the economics department, as well as foreign professors that are difficult to understand. The best part about DU is the people. No matter what the season, DU students are always excited for outdoor adventures, embracing Colorado-esque activities, such as skiing, hiking, bouldering, etc.

I've tried very hard to get active on this campus. I left a college hometown, where 95% of kids never leave, to try and branch out and really get the most out of the college experience. Student to teacher ration is great here. There isn't much else that I would really say. No one seems to be proud of our school and there doesn't seem to be anything glueing the students together. I participate in Greek Life, the school paper, a club sports team, and more. Still, I haven't felt like there is much of a connection here. If you're looking for more than just a school, something like a friendly community where you feel at home, I'd look somewhere else.

There are so many incredible options to complete your degree. Personally, I am completing my courses remotely while I intern for an NHL franchise in another state. Everyone is very understanding of my schedule and helps me when I need it. I would definitely not only choose the University of Denver again, but I would recommend it to others!
