Detailed Ratings

DU has a beautiful consolidated campus, easily accessible to the Denver Metro area and mountains. The areas of study are very diverse, and continually being updated and improved as technology improves and socio-economics of the job market change. The academics and instructors are excellent. Campus activities include a wide range of interests - no football, but a very good hockey and ski program, as well as other sports. The campus is "wired" and students use laptops in all classes.
