There's More to DU Than Lecture Halls
Who says you need four walls and a textbook to learn? Whether you've never set foot on a dirt trail, or your hiking boots are well worn, the programs at the Kennedy Mountain Campus give you incredible opportunities to take a lesson from Mother Nature...and learn a lot about yourself in the process. Here, we break the traditional mold and invite everyone to join our 4D Experience—a journey that helps you find your purpose, shaping your life with meaning and impact.

“I was willing to get out of my comfort zone. I had no idea how to do rock climbing, but the instructors [were] patient and helpful… The height was scary at first, but once I found my balance, I made it.”
