"It was a good school, but maybe not worth how expensive it was."

"I love the University of Denver - "A private university dedicated to the public good." It is a respected school in a beautiful setting. I made lifelong friends at DU and met my husband there. Ecological Economics was one of my favorite classes in the Department of Geography. One of my professors connected me with an opportunity at the U.S. Forest Service, and I was able to spend a summer doing field work in Wyoming. DU has an impressive study abroad program. I didn't necessarily plan to study abroad when I was looking at universities, but I am so thankful DU encourages their students to do so. They make the process easy! I spent a semester in Germany, and it was one of the best experiences I had in college."

"The Korbel School was decent. The University as a whole is not great in my opinion. Not too much in the way of diversity among the undergrads. The few minorities that are there are basically forced to be incredibly vocal on race issues instead of just enjoying their experience. The University is starting to play judge, jury, and executioner as a flawed response to sexual assault problems. Location within Denver is not ideal. If you're dead set on Colorado go for CU Boulder or Colorado College."

"University of Denver has a great collection of talented professors. The anthropology department places a strong focus on cultural anthropology and south american archaeology. Professor Lawrence Conyers in the anthropology department is one of the worlds leading experts in ground penetrating radar. University of Denver is definitely the school to go to for historical archaeology and the study of gpr in archaeology. The History department largely focuses on American and European history. They do not have a strong classics department, however there is a phenomenal classics professor named Nicholas Rockwell. I definitely recommend University of Denver; all of the classes are small and your professors will always know who you are and how you're doing in class."

"If you have mega ADHD and the 16 week semester is as daunting as mount Everest, than the University of Denver is for you. The 10 week quarter is great! The University of Denver is a great school for bright students who went to public high schools that didn't prepare them well for college. The required general courses (i.e. writing, two social sciences and two arts and humanities, science etc.) really help prepare you for the rest of your college experience. They also help you find out what you are really interested in, not what you think will get you a job after graduation. At DU most of my courses ended up connecting with each other in one way or another. The class sizes are small (usually 15-30 students per class). Even in the largest classes of 60-70 students, the professor will often get to know your name. This school also has a lot of events and fun things to do. My favorite DU tradition was May Days, a week full of student programmed events and free stuff like midnight breakfast and tie dying t-shirts. The film committee shows recent films every Thursday night at 8pm in a big auditorium. The campus is beautiful with lots of green spaces. Our library was just renovated to have more study spaces and high tech study rooms. DU also help pay for airfare for study abroad! I really enjoyed my time at DU and would recommend it for undergraduate education to anyone and everyone!"
