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.
