University of Denver Reviews
The extra opportunities at DU are fantastic! Not to mention the personable size, phenomenally balanced and experienced professors, and stellar location, the Honors Program and Pioneer Leadership Program add extra communities and "niches," if you will, in the school. I'm a freshman this year, and my expectations were exceeded because of these great programs! I'm so excited for what's to come in these next four years. DU has something for everyone, and responds SO well to self activism.
The University of Denver has its ups and downs. While the education is challenging and accelerated in a very promising way, the quality of life is not as glamorous as it seems. People are not very tolerant, and they can be quite ignorant and aggressive towards unfamiliar things, rather than open-minded. Some professors are phenomenal, others are awful, but the small-class format that dominates most of DU's pedagogical system guarantees a close relationship with professors and an in-depth approach on the subject matter. The food is awful, but improving, the internet is great, there's plenty of hidden resources to tap into, and the views are gorgeous.
The size of University of Denver is so convenient especially for first year students. The campus is so pretty and easy to navigate, while still being a decent size! Everyone in admissions is so easy to communicate with and really good at getting back to students quickly.
