Students generally enjoy their time at DU and are content staying for four years. Classes are interesting, professors are friendly, and the campus is in the middle of a growing, energetic city. Social life at DU is varied and engaging, and students often say the best part of their time at DU has been the memories and friends they’ve made.
Some students complain that DU lacks diversity, and they say that the campus is too small, there’s not enough school spirit, and it’s too expensive. Some can’t wait to get away on the weekends to go party or attend football games at CU Boulder or CSU. Others are looking for more of an academic challenge in their college careers. DU offers a nice balance of academia and partying. If you’re looking to dedicate your college years solely to developing your career and learning as much as you can, DU probably isn’t the place for you. If you want to learn, but also want to have some fun in the process, DU might be the perfect fit.
I've lived in Colorado my whole life, so the snow doesn't effect me much. I'm used to having to trudge through feet of snow to go to class, and I'd much prefer to attend class than to be stuck in a dorm - it just takes a little longer to get to class!
There isn't much space to park on campus unless you pay the fee to receive a parking pass. When there are sporting events or graduations, parking can be a little more difficult on the side streets, but usually the garages around campus have plenty of spaces.
There is quite a lot of diversity on DU campus. There are students that participate in sports, to students that would much rather spend time in a lab, to students that dive into Greek Life. There are so many different things to do and so many places for students to go that it is easy, regardless of background, to feel like students belong.
Going through the process of financial aid was difficult, but it provided me with exactly what I needed to attend my first year of college. The small amount of struggle I had was worth the time and effort to be secure financially for school.
The Art program was pretty easy to get into, all I had to do was get a major change form (I was a Biology major previously) signed by an Art adviser and fill out easy info on it.
