When I was touring the school, the tour/ Student Life Staff were very informative and helpful. They were please to guide the potential students and pleasantly answer all of the questions that students and the parents had. Programs that are offered at the University of Denver is suitable for students interested in various fields. From its exceptional Daniels College of Business program to its science and engineering programs, students will find their place at the University with no problem. Additionally, the active student life such as sororities, fraternities, and various clubs and club sports, students will always stay active at the University of Denver.

The University of Denver has an amazing faculty and staff, specifically the Sociology and Criminology professors! They are all very willing to help you should you need it. I do wish this campus was more diverse than what is "advertised"
I LOVE it at DU! The vibe is outdoorsy, laid-back, yet hardworking. The location is ideal, as it is near the mountains and close to the city, which opens up many opportunities for the students. Although the main demographic of DU is wealthy Caucasians, all students are open-minded and driven for success. Even with small class sizes, i am disappointed in the quality of professors in the economics department, as well as foreign professors that are difficult to understand. The best part about DU is the people. No matter what the season, DU students are always excited for outdoor adventures, embracing Colorado-esque activities, such as skiing, hiking, bouldering, etc.
