Established in 1864, University of Denver is a private university located in Denver, Colorado. The college was initially named Colorado Seminary, and while it is now called differently, legally, DU still retains its original name. DU offers certificate, bachelor’s, masters, and doctoral programs, in areas such as arts, business, natural history, and many more. Most of the 12,000 students enrolled annually live in the historically rich campus, with a great view of the Rocky Mountains. The campus is home to the second highest telescope in the world, near the summit of Mount Evans. While DU doesn’t have a football team, its hockey, lacrosse, and ski teams are among the best. Student life includes Greek social fraternities, several clubs & organisations, and adventure sports. Students here are conveniently placed to enjoy the city experience, as well as more physically strenuous activities at the mountains. Notable alumni include Condoleezza Rice, Gale Norton, and Bob Berkowitz.
