I loved the outdoorsy community and how open and nice people are. Most teachers are very accommodating and understanding and there's always a resource somewhere for you and your needs.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's a small campus and It does snow so be prepared for cold weather. Classes go fast the 10-week quarter system is no joke but it's Worth It and the business program is amazing.

I really liked all my professors and the campus is great! There are a ton of study spots available and the campus isn't too big or too small. I also really like that it's right next to the light rail, so I can travel downtown or to the airport.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's not as diverse as I thought it would be. I have to go out of my way to find friends who look like me or experienced the same things that I did growing up. The people generally are nice, but the school gives tokenism vibes. They also haven't changed their mascot, even though it's highly offensive to the native community. Finally, I haven't found or gotten many opportunities as a minority student compared to the school I'll be transferring to.

The campus is small, so it's easy to make connections with people of all grades and ages. The class sizes are relatively small and it's easy to have a personal relationship with your professors and ask for help when needed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Even though it is a private institution with pressure on social issues and being "progressive", some queerphobic and racially motivated things do happen. The campus is also very close to downtown, making crime an issue.

I think the University of Denver is a great school for people who want a classroom size of 20 people so one can interact with the teacher more often. The school is close to downtown and there is a light rail that can take you there. On top of that, public transportation is provided by the school. There are a lot of social events one can attend as we have great sports teams that are amusing to watch.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The diversity at the University of Denver is limited but one can find their people here by joining affinity groups.

I have thrived here! I absolutely love it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Tuition is pretty expensive.

Rachel Jaeger
Jewelry Making



DU has a low student to faculty ratio which means learning experiences are really personalized and hands-on. Professors are open to building a relationship with their students. Professors also spent about 50% of their time teaching and the other 50% researching, rather than the 30% teaching and 70% research ratio at other schools. DU has excellent academics and course offerings.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you have food sensitivities, it can be difficult to have a varied diet at DU. They offer many vegan/vegetarian options, but gluten-free and soy-free options are harder to come by.
