Did You Know?
- Only two percent of classes have 50 or more students, and 62 percent of classes have fewer than 20 students. The small class sizes and advantageous faculty-to-student ratio make going to class more of an individual and personal experience.
- The Frank H. Ricketson Jr. Law Building, Daniels College of Business, and the Lamont School of Music are state-of-the-art buildings constructed within the past decade.
- DU is on the "quarter system" (as opposed to semesters).
- Fall quarter lasts from mid-September to late November, followed by an extended winter break until the beginning of January. Winter quarter lasts until mid-March; spring break goes from late March until April, and spring quarter lasts until early June.
- The Cable Center is an innovative, interactive distance-learning program featuring cable TV archives, a theater, and an outdoor amphitheater with a video wall. Through a partnership with C-SPAN, DU students are able to talk "face to face" via satellite with professors, experts, and politicians across the country.
- All students applying for undergraduate admission are required to complete the Hyde Interview. The interviews are a way for admission counselors to get to know the students behind the applications and test scores, while students are given the chance to showcase their personalities, interests, and ideas.
