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.
As a first generation student, the University of Denver has really allowed me to connect with other first gens in a way where navigating college was easier when you have all these similar people on your side. On top of that, the university offers LLC programs; these living and learning communities group together freshman of similar interests and allows for communities to grow together and meld into the larger community that is DU. Being apart of the international LLC, I’ve never been so thankful for a community. Overall, DU has welcomed all of its students with open arms and has enforced the idea of inclusive excellence, truly making its campus a force to be reckoned with.
The classes are great sizes, the professors are very helpful, and the campus is beautiful! However, this school is not diverse at all, definitely a very privileged school.
