What Students Are Saying

3.43 Average Rating
In general Metro State is a good school. Teachers are fantastic, but administration could be much more organized. The college is in the heart of denver and is a very unique place to go to school.

I think that MSU Denver is a great place to attend school and earn a four year Degree. Metro is a good school because of its affordability and closeness to everything in Denver. The learning program is good here and there are several student help centers to go to for guidance and help.
