    I think this school will be worth the money when you factor in the experience. The city is beautiful and theres something for every student. Despite the few safety issues its an awesome school.

    In-state students can get many of the same classes for $1,000 cheaper at the local community college where the classes are much smaller and taught by actual professors. This school should be an absolute last resort.

    I thought that for the most part I got what I paid for, but it would be nice if they reduced the cost of tuition a bit. The fees that students pay for can also seem a bit overwhelming, especially with all of the fees going towards new construction. However, one of the most valuable fees that students pay is for transportation. Each student can get a bus card that lets them go on the RTD system in Colorado for free.

    Unfortunately, the price tag here is very high, but like I said before, if you can afford it, it's worth it.
