Downtown is about a 15 min ride on the lightrail so there are always sporting events, 16th street mall, and other fun stuff to do down there. There is also some fun event going on every week on campus.
DU is really close to the lightrail so it's easy to take off to the 16th Street mall or even the bigger Southglenn mall. Cherry Creek mall is pretty close too, but not near a lightrail stop. There are also a lot of parks nearby.
