University of Denver Reviews
I had an extremely pleasant experience with the admission counselors as I was deciding whether or not to apply. They answered all of my questions with genuine care, advice, and direction. Once I applied and was accepted, I was pleased with the level of communication - getting me in touch with my program advisors and professors. I am super excited to begin my PhD program this fall (2019)!
Very reputable school. Loved the professors! They were passionate and cared about your success. Beautiful campus/workout center/library. Campus is close to good restaurants/breweries/grocery stores/parks etc. Fifteen minutes away from downtown. My only complaint is that the school is so expensive. Wouldn’t recommend going there unless you have scholarships/grants/money.
This University is great for those invested in their educations and who want a more traditional smaller class as opposed to large lectures. Teachers do their best to get to know you and the University really focuses on maintaining small class sizes to encourage stronger relationships between students and teachers. The quarter system this university uses also gives a month off in December which gives students time to take advantage of the winter mountains or to head home for the holidays with their families. The quarters only last 10 weeks so classes go by fast and you have to learn a lot quickly, but the pace really helps keep you on task and invested in class as well.
