What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
The quarter system forces you to learn quick and have little time. It's perfect because you can focus on school and stay out of trouble.
Jeremy from Denver, CO
What makes DU challenging is that the professors have high expectations and the quarter system moves extremely fast. It is very difficult to catch up if you miss class or get behind at all.
Marianne from Colorado Springs, CO
Depends on the classes you take, and what you put in to them.
Nicholas from Littleton, CO
Academic rigor varies widely depending on the course of study, but you can always expect it to be at least average, if not much better. Many of our professors have PhDs and many more have been recognized for outstanding work in their fields. Our business school is recognized throughout the nation, and our department of engineering is on the rise. (I may be slightly biased, however, since I'm a mechanical engineering student.) Everyone likes to complain about the homework, but really, it's not that bad. Most of it is designed to make you think, not just fill your time with busy work (although we do get a little of that sometimes). All in all, you can expect to be challenged here, but DU makes sure to emphasize the plentiful resources they give you to succeed. From the writing center in the library, to the accessible schedule of the professors, to the numerous study groups, clubs, and societies focused on developing skills in each area of study, you will have many opportunities to strengthen your skills.
