Review Metropolitan State University of Denver
I am currently going to Metro, and my experience as a returning student/single mom has been very rewarding. A variety of ages in a diverse ethnic student population allows for a positive learning environment that is open and accepting. Located within easy walking from the tram station, the college is easily accessible and the Professors are truly excited and dedicated to what they are teaching. The level of education enrichment at this school is far and beyond any college or university I have ever attended!
MSU Denver offers flexibility; they have courses going on nearly every hour of the day, which is great for those of us who have full-time jobs. I actually graduated from Metro in 3 years and I enjoyed the mandatory courses for my major. For the most part the professors were lenient, but I will say there were one or two who were meanies. I was living off campus which saved me a great deal of money (so I can't tell you about the dorm life). The cost of tuition was the main reason I attended. For a Bachelor's in Psychology I owe about $20,000. Not bad, right? MSU is also right in the heart of Downtown Denver so there is a lot of things to do in between classes. All in all, it's an exciting place to get your education!
This is a great school and campus for people all over Denver and the front range. It's a commuter campus, which can get dicey with the parking occasionally, but otherwise it's really great to go to school with such a diverse body of students. Everyone is focused and serious about their education, and it's a really amazing creative collaborative environment. This is my THIRD school (I transferred twice) and it's my favorite! The professors and the teaching staff are really great, and from diverse fields of expertise. There's a lot of stuff on campus- often markets, fairs, and even food truck events.
