My experience at CCD has been nothing but positive. It has been a perfect fit for me. The class sizes are always less then 25 people which is exactly what I need in a class. I have only had great teachers, all of them being positive and helpful and always going the extra mile whether that is meeting outside of their office hours, or finding another way to explain something to me when I'm not understanding something. I have nothing but great things to say about this school and the faculty!
Review Your College
The organization of some of the offices (advising, financial aid, testing center) is very poor. I recommend to do your research very carefully and be especially careful with our financial aid forms. Have someone help you with D2L and CCD connect account, the information online is sometimes more accurate than what you will get from the offices. There are plenty of amazing teachers tho! And a very diverse population of students. I will warn you not all the students take it seriously. Being one of the nation's largest campuses, and one of the only tri-college campuses in the US, you will be exposed to a lot of downtown Denver. This can be a good and a bad thing. It can be daunting to get around campus as well but luckily most of the CCD buildings are near each other.
Attending the Community College of Denver truly helped me in transforming my life. One of my main goals in attending was to gain a sense of hope for my future. I completed my core credits there, and then transferred over to CU Denver where I am now a junior. What I loved about CCD was that it was absolutely diverse in its student body. With such diversity, classroom conversations were expansive and thoughtful. Most all of the teachers I had were receptive to any questions thrown at them.
For someone like myself who struggled with a low GPA in high school, at CCD I was able to make honor roll and hold a 4.0 both years I attended. I would recommend CCD to anyone who was worried they might not be able to be tenacious in their schooling, because I believe the faculty at CCD understands that most students starting at CCD are non traditional, taking care of families alongside their education, and typically filled with those who are not starting fresh from high school.
