    Don't be deceived by US News and World's estimation of DU's engineering and computer science programs. DU's Richie School are turning that all around and already have a great reputation with companies in Colorado. I got an internship very easily. Definitely check out DU's student organizations. It can be hard to meet people coming into the University of Denver, but the clubs are accepting and positive communities.

    Unless you or your parents can afford $50,000 per year in tuition, do not go here. The University of Denver does offer quite a few merit based scholarships, so that is another option. Also, if you go to an expensive institution like this, make sure you are getting a degree that will be more lucrative (i.e. STEM) to pay off your loans. The area is beautiful and there is a lot of activities to do outside, so take advantage of that. The campus is near the light rail where every student can ride it for free. You don't necessarily need a car on campus, plus parking can be expensive. If you find yourself confused in a STEM class like chemistry, physics, or math, there are many TAs in the Anderson Academic Commons that are happy to help.

    Try to get the most out of your education. If you come here ready to learn and take in everything you can, you won't be sorry. This might mean lots of hard work, but the University has so many resources that few ever take advantage of so it's incredible what you can accomplish in four years.

    If you get the chance to do the pioneer program and other outreach programs, do. It becomes helpful when applying. You actually have to study for your classes, it's not a bird course. If you live in the Denver metro area, you can live at home. That is really the best part about it. The light rail is also the to get you anywhere you need to go.
