My review

The Good:

The best thing about University of Denver is the campus. It is small, comfortable, and beautiful, with a lot of open space to hang out in the wonderful Colorado sunshine!

The Bad:

The worst thing about this school is that there is no football team, which makes for less school spirit than many other schools might have. The big sport at DU is hockey, which a lot of students get into, but it's just not the same as having a football team.

Would I do it again?

Yes, My time at DU has been incredible so far! I have met so many great people, been challenge academically and personally, and have been given great opportunities in the local and global community including volunteer work and studying abroad in Prague.

About this school

Biggest influence when choosing this school Reputation

The financial aid process went smoothly and I received the financial aid I needed.

Professors are generally Inspiring

The night life is Spent in a Bar

Every student at this school needs Their own printer. Every student gets 300 pages of printing free each quarter, but without a doubt, there will be at least one time 10 minutes before your paper is due that the printing network will go down.

Most students spend their Saturday nights Most students will either go to a Greek Life party, a bar party, or to downtown Denver which is only 15 minutes away on the light rail.

Another awesome thing is The study abroad programs and opportunities. If you are accepted into a DU program and have at least a 3.0 GPA, all of your financial aid (including state, federal, and institutional aid) will transfer to your host country's program.

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? When you do your interview, make sure to talk a great deal about diversity and inclusive excellence. If you don't know what the last term means, research it. It's a key phrase here at DU, and one that you will certainly hear at least once a week if you attend this school.

I wish I knew One thing I wish I had known was how much of an influence Greek life has. It isn't necessarily a good or bad thing, but it does have a large presence on campus and it's important for anyone who attends DU to have an open mind about it.
