CU in the City - University of Colorado Denver

Freshman Admissions

I fell in love with Denver. It feels very homey but also with big city excitement. When I came to visit through the Denver Bound program, the professors took the time to get to know me and make me feel welcome. That was very special.”
- Ivanna Buchynsky, Class of 2016
CU Denver felt comfortable, like home. When I met people on campus, we had a lot in common, but I also love the diversity, because I can learn from different cultures. Also, it’s exciting to be in a big city with more opportunities for jobs than in my own state.”
- Alyssa Estrada, Class of 2017
