What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
This school is academically more challenging than anything you have or will ever experience. The social life is almost non-existent, but school spirit is very strong. The hard work put in at the school will pay of huge down the road when it's time to start a career because employers know that this school is one of the best there is.
Michael from Leesburg, VA
The campus is beautiful, in a bowl of mountains and bordered by west Denver. The amenities on campus aren't as shiny as some, but they're everything you could need for any sport or hobby you may have. They do a really good job of keeping campus safe; the entire campus is well lit, and campus PD is friendly and always around to crack a joke and keep everyone safe.
