4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Very close to campus there is a huge selection of apartments and houses that one can choose from. Pricing varies from $600/month to $1200/month or higher depending on how nice the place is. Safety is sometimes an issue because we are right in the middle of a large city, but the university has a escort service available by campus safety if anyone needs to walk home and does not feel safe enough to walk alone.

Off-Campus Dining: Many options, cost is okay but worth the quality. Not many student discounts.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is not the most important groups to be in on campus. If you want to join Greek life you can; however, you do not need to to have a social life. Most Greek housing is off campus on a specific road.

Campus Food: Lots of people get food poisoning from Sodexo. My roommate was very ill from raw chicken. Food options do not change and quality is poor.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I did not have any problem applying and receiving financial aid.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I know I can call campus security at any time and they will answer.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I find living off campus is much more enjoyable and feels as though I am more independent.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Personally, for the cost I could have lived off campus in a more spacious comfortable house.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus because I don't put myself in bad situations but there is quite a bit of crime which is usually a result of underage drinking off campus.

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere of living on campus here is great. People are always out doing things and it is easy to make new friends.

3 College Junior

Administration: The school takes the academic honesty very seriously. It also reacts more strongly to things that affect other students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Everything close to campus is expensive and there is quite a bit of crime. The parking is nonexistent as well, but the further away you go, the better those things get.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It is pretty good. It is very diverse you can always find what you're looking for.

Majors: I love my program and the people who help support it. It is a tight knit group and everyone is always readily available to ask for help.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: DU has deep pockets and it makes sure it knows exactly how much money you come from. The school does not give students large financial aid awards.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The students and alumni are very supportive of the sports teams.

College Freshman

Greek Life: The organizations are really friendly but I'm not in one.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's so much you can choose from! Italian, Middle Eastern; expensive, dollar menu; if you want diarrhea or not.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off-campus. Students live in dorms the first two years, unless you can wriggle your way out of it.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you're into this, there's plenty of options. I don't take part just because I like to sleep and it ain't my forte, but there's a lot out here.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Applying for this crap sucks cuz there's so many places to ask for money. But once you're past the paperwork, it's totes worth it.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love what I'm enrolled in, and I think it'll be worth it at the end. You get out, what you put in.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have no problems with it at all. Obey the rules and be ethical and you shouldn't have any problems.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: It's super fun to have so many options to participate in! Tons of intramurals, and the varsity athletes are given just the right amount of attention to get the regular kids' respect, but aren't tools.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think they're doing everything in their power to make the atmosphere safe. It is in an urban area, so there have been issues with crime at the borders of campus. There's been like five the first quarter, it's flippin sketchy.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students generally enjoy their time at DU and are content staying for four years. Classes are interesting, professors are friendly, and the campus is in the middle of a growing, energetic city. Social life at DU is varied and engaging, and students often say the best part of their time at DU has been the memories and friends they’ve made.

Some students complain that DU lacks diversity, and they say that the campus is too small, there’s not enough school spirit, and it’s too expensive. Some can’t wait to get away on the weekends to go party or attend football games at CU Boulder or CSU. Others are looking for more of an academic challenge in their college careers. DU offers a nice balance of academia and partying. If you’re looking to dedicate your college years solely to developing your career and learning as much as you can, DU probably isn’t the place for you. If you want to learn, but also want to have some fun in the process, DU might be the perfect fit.
