Community College of Denver Reviews

My experience at the Community College of Denver by far has been very great. All the professors I've had have been really amazing and helpful with whatever you need help with. The more you communicate with your professor, the more it will benefit and help you out. I like that my classes are fairly easy, understandable and interesting! Definitely a great community college for anyone that doesn't know what exactly they want to major in. Advisors help out a lot on what classes to take, financial aid help, and simply just helping out with your mental health when it is needed. The college also has writing, math and reading labs for anyone that needs it. They have tutoring from students themselves. It is a great college with amazing help from the professors, advisors and students.

I am the first one in my family to go to college and never knew if college was for me. I applied for other community colleges and some universities. After looking through al the colleges I chose community college of Denver, because there are many opportunities waiting for everyone. Of all colleges I've looked through this is by far the most diverse college that focuses on equal opportunities for students who don't often get that in their lives. I started over a month ago and enjoy learning here everyday. If this sounds like you, you'll love it here!
Very average junior college on a great campus. CCD shares the campus with MetroState as well as UC-Denver. The students are widely accepting of all backgrounds so making friends will come easy! The tivoli is a great hang out spot and at night - you get a great view of the skyline, one that I miss now that I moved away. However, the campus is poorly-lit at night and assaults are common.

At CCD, I found only a few professors who actually seemed like they cared, wanted students to learn and made it fun. So, if you do get lucky to find a professor you like, please share with other students and rateyourprofessor.com to save students the headache of dealing with teachers who don't know how to teach

Being downtown, parking is a nightmare and expensive. If you are going to Auraria, please go to MSU or UCD - you'll have an easier time getting answers from financial aid/registrar/cashier etc. as well as more bang for you buck with better professors at the other universities.
