What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
The University of Denver I believe is a very good school. It is a pretty big campus with many different types of people. They have very good science programs.
Wenda from Littleton, CO
UCD is a school located in the heart of Denver. UCD shares it's campus with two other colleges so it gives you both the big university and small university vibe at the same time. There is never a dull moment!
Kara from Kapolei, HI
This a University for the very driven, determined and independent student. The teachers will make you work for your grade and in the end transform you into a better student. It is the most amazing challenge to come here and succeed.
Nicole from Morrison, CO
The campus is one of the most efficient in terms of class schedules and use of classroom space. The atmosphere is fast paced and exciting lying in the heart of downtown Denver. I enjoy being on campus everyday with the opportunity to explore the city.
