3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: once past intro course it's pretty great

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm told it's fantastic, but haven't looked into it

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There's more crime and violence than anticipated

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's ok, but there's not enough housing total

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We have great teams that are known nationally

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not sure if the price is worth it

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far there have been a wide variety of classes offered and the professors are always engaged. Class sizes are generally smaller than average.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center has a wide variety of resources available to help students find internships and jobs, though these can vary depending on the subject area.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Theft can sometimes be a problem but is easily avoided if you look after your things.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There's nothing wrong with my dorm building, though it's not the highest quality or newest facility. But it's perfectly fine to live in for 9 months.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek life so I don't know a ton, but almost all of my friends are also non-Greek and don't feel as though we're missing out on anything. It's expensive to participate in Greek life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports teams are generally good but there's simply not very much turn out for sports other than hockey.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Living and Learning Community program makes DU stand out and has shaped my entire college experience so far. I recommend it to everyone.

3 College Freshman

Academics: You can get a good education if you work hard for it, otherwise good luck.

Diversity: DU is not a diverse college. White, white, white. Rich, rich, rich.

Drug Safety: It's college, a significant portion of students are here to party and waste time. I doubt it differs much from other schools, though.

Health & Safety: DU is not by any means a safe campus. Although the location is not necessarily dangerous during one-quarter we had 5 sexual assault cases at night on campus which the school deemed "forcible fondling", as well as armed robbers driving around with guns.

Overall Experience: Most of my professors were average. They did not fully engage the class and many kids opted to stop showing up week 4. However, I have had 2 extremely good professors who inspired me.

Campus Housing: Housing is not good for freshmen. Do you like being woken up at 4 in the morning on a Wednesday by drunk floormates? Do you like hearing "floor sports" when trying to study? Do you like a tiny cramped room?

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: This year I helped charter a new fraternity on campus. This was due to the fact that almost all of the other fraternities are so snobbish and questionably homosexual that I felt no inclination to join.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Couldn't care less along with most of the schools population. Lacrosse is big here but the lacrosse team are such douche bags that its hard to want to support them.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like the courses and professors.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are so many people on campus. It is nice to see diversity and different ages.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I appreciate the wisdom of my professors and like the school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career services try to help with job/internship selection.

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.
