By far the worst administration I've ever encountered. The amount of inconsistent and incorrect information being fed to me from every level of advisor up to department heads and program directors has been truly appalling, I?m convinced no one at this school gives any care to their job. The director of my program, the woman who wrote the program and its required courses, didn't even know what seven (seven!!) classes she was in charge of (and teaching!). The education is mediocre at best, a perfect example of out of touch, tenured, professors using ancient textbooks written by friends and so engrained in their "method" it detracts from any relevant learning required for a professional future. Im in a DIGITAL marketing program and have yet to learn a single thing about digital-specific marketing (nor are my remaining, required courses at all related to the subject). The school also believes the rent in Denver is a max of $800/mo, so if you?re an adult attending full time, like myself, you will receive no further aid beyond what living with 3 other roommates will cost you. This school is massively out of touch, focused solely on individual cogs while missing the larger picture of providing a decent education without constant time sucks to make up for their extremely lacking administration. I absolutely regret attending this school.

Most (90-95%) classes at CU Denver end before 5pm (M-F, no classes on weekends); there are no evening options at all for Business undergraduate. Class schedule is not adult friendly.I don't know why the website says the school offers evening or weekend classes.

If you want to just study and get a good education while making a few friends this is the place! The school cares about its students and doesn't have performative activism, they actually do things. It is hard to make friends but if you go to clubs, stay in dorms, and go to the events they hold you will most likely make friends outside of your classroom! The diversity is wonderful as well. It is close to downtown so you have a lot of networking possibilities and also a nice spot to hangout!

Some shitty professors but ok for the most part. Little to absolutely no social atmosphere. Housing sucks and homeless people practically live in the library. If you go to Boulder just for the party scene and flunk your classes, you'll be here.
