  • The University of Denver is a very beautiful area-the old brick buildings reminiscent of Europe, student atmosphere gets into adolescence, and easy accessibility is one of the most obvious pluses campus.

  • Current student at the Daniels College of Business. DU excels at delivering a great learning environment. The class sizes are small and the teachers are not just glorified paper collectors. They challenge students to be an active participant in the class.
  • Actually. My brother is studying there and he says it is good university to be in ...
  • Had my graduation ceremony there as well as my brothers this May and it is a very nice venue. Very large and very nice outdoor area also.
  • I am currently attending DU's Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW) program as an Advanced Standing student with a concentration in children and youth. I have found that my program has provided a wide variety of courses and concentrations to choose from and that I have always found interesting class options to fulfill my credit requirements. I feel that the classes are rigorous and are preparing me to be a social worker in both the field and in working with children and youth. The professors care about burnout, self-care, our overall well-being, our difference in learning styles, and helping us to be ready for a career after graduation. The internship opportunities available are vast-600 agencies within the Denver Metro area to choose from and allow for job opportunities after the completion of the program. As someone who moved from out of state to attend DU, I would say that DU has definitely felt like home. I did not attend DU for my undergraduate degree, so I cannot comment on what that experience is like. However, I would strongly recommend attending DU for graduate school in the social work program. The one negative thing I would say about the university and the program in general is that it is not a very diverse atmosphere and it is definitely something the university seriously needs to work on.
  • Awesome campus. Greenery all around. Well organized and very clean. People are very cooperative and generous.
