3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you're not a girl, in greek life, and don't have a fake, chances are most of the partying you'll be doing is with your friend's club sports team or in a dorm.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Denver is one amazing city. Endless options for food, nightlife, bars, and quality cheap pro-sports games to watch

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It varies from person to person, fraternity to fraternity, but in general most dudes here are pretty friendly.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have several programs and groups dedicated to the prevention of sexual assault and to informing the community on what is and how to prevent sexual assault.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you're not in a fraternity, it is much much much tougher getting into parties, even if you bring a strong ratio of girls, or even if you know/are friends with multiple people in the fraternity.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Coors Fitness Center is top notch. Great availability of all type of quality equipment.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are some very nice houses at reasonable prices, especially if you get a roommate or 3.

4 College Freshman

Administration: You can get away with quite a bit here, just so long as you're not dumb about it.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's not very thorough, it goes by what a family's income is rather what a family can afford to pay.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is often inconsistent in that it depends on the sodexo employee that prepared it. Some employees are great and do a great job, while others are lazy and lack quality control skills.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym is great and offers free classes everyday of the week. The only downside is it is one of the nicest gyms in the area so a lot of adults from outside the school have memberships.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I stayed in the dorms but I know there are a bunch of small bungalows surrounding campus

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Illegal Pete's and the original Chipotle are so close to campus.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Very much of a bar kinda school and its pretty easy to get in to any near campus

3 College Freshman

Administration: I was there for a year and I know a lot of people that were picked up be campus safety for underage drinking but that's about it.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Great school if you're looking for people that really work with you. It was a very personable experience.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: All around the dining is ok, but there are definitely cool spots. Beans in the Hospitality building is a student run coffee house that's pretty cool. They also have pretty good smoothies in the library. Einsteins is always great too.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are pretty small. The best options are the quads with the kitchen. They don't do the best options on picking roommates so if you could find a roommate on the facebook page or something that would help you out a lot.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a really good scholarship from Lamont School of Music, and some from DU. The need-based scholarship though was a hassle and I didn't get hardly anything from them, even though my mother (who I live with) makes barely a hundred dollars above poverty level.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is good if you're expecting absolute crap, but it has no nutrition, bad taste, and gives you the runs.

Campus Housing: Dorms are nice for being dorms, however, being a music major, Centennial Halls is ridiculously far away.

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.
