University of Denver:

Brief Description: Small, private institution located on a tree-shaded campus in the energetic capital city of Denver, Colorado. UD’s predominantly female student body consists of less than 5,000 full-time undergrads. 

High Honors: With the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, UD gets high marks for its local culture, weather and recreational opportunities (like hiking and skiing). Denver is also home to a vibrant music scene with great concert venues, like the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre.


Best of Both Worlds: According to CollegeProwler, a website that profiles and reviews colleges and universities, UD is a good match for students seeking a good balance between academic and social life. Admission is relatively easy as well, with UD’s acceptance rate hovering around 70%.

Fun Fact: In 1908, UD became one of the first universities in the United States to establish a college of business. Not surprisingly, UD’s business program is considered one of the best in the nation and the school’s most popular majors are Business Management, Finance and Accounting.
