riska from Aurora, CO
When attending Community College of Denver you really have to be on top of things yourself. When you select your major, they do not provide you with a list of required courses for that major; you have to search their website for a list of courses that you need to take. However the teachers are awesome and seem to really care about the success of their students.
Megan from Arvada, CO
Choosing Community College of Denver is a great start for those who want to get advanced knowledge but less money. The professors and staff here will make you comfortable with fantastic cares and concerns. This school is an important part for my bright future.
