Our philosophy of what college should be is different. Here, you do school, you’re not just in school. At the University of Denver, you’ll be in the driver’s seat of your educational experience, and you’ll experience your way to a passionate career. Our dedication to your engaged learning, plus our world-class location overlooking the Rocky Mountains, is tailor-made for an adventure seeker like you. And it’s for one thing: for the difference it will make in your life.
For the difference that friendships forge.
At DU, you’ll be surrounded by students just like you who can’t wait to get into the wilderness, get on the slopes or get the bikes on the trail. And we’re not just about enjoying those resources; we’re about protecting them, too. We do meaningful research, partner with community groups and challenge our habits so that we can be part of creating a more sustainable world.
For the difference that experiences invite
No matter what you study, you won’t just sit in a classroom. At DU, we prioritize experiencing learning. You’ll be shaped by field work in a mountain stream, interning at a business in downtown Denver or publishing original research you did alongside your professor in the lab. Perhaps you’ll also head abroad during junior year or over a Winter Interterm to immerse yourself in new cultures. At every step, you’ll be mentored by wise and invested professors and alumni who want you to succeed.
