You don’t hear much about the gay and lesbian community on DU’s campus, but student organizations, such as PRIDE, sponsor ongoing events and activities. The Lesbian Gay Bisexual Alliance, another student organization, hosts several educational, social, and support activities throughout the year.
Generally, the campus is liberal, but students stay relatively quiet about politics—attribute it to apathy or ignorance. Demonstrations and rallies are sparse. Although, When Obama came to DU and when the Democratic Convention was in Denver this past summer, many students were involved and active within the political community, both for and against the Democratic party.
Generally speaking, DU students come from affluent families. However, don’t automatically assume everyone you meet has money to spare. Many students attend DU on scholarships, grants, and loans.
Most Common Religions
There are a number of Christians, Jews, and Muslims on campus. Religious student organizations range from Menorah Ministries to Catholic Campus Ministry.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Although DU’s campus could stand to see more diversity, there are several student-led minority clubs and living arrangements, including Japanese Student Association, Saudi Students House, Thai Organization, and the Hillel Jewish Student Center.
