I need a balance of work and relaxing time, because all work and no play makes Janet a very dull and burned-out student. CU Denver is perfect. It's smack in the middle of downtown, so there's always something to do! I must say coming to CU Denver is another thing I can put on my ‘well-made decisions’ list.”
- Janet Mensah, Class of 2016
I wanted to go to CU Denver, because it places among the leading business schools in the nation. My dream is to get a job with the Broncos, so I like CU Denver’s sports management program.”
