I just visited DU and the surrounding areas over the weekend. Feel free to ask if you have any questions. Although most of you will be visiting the school in a few weeks! Good luck!
Also, what are people planning on doing for housing? I want to live off-campus but I am also moving from out of state.
How did you like the school and surrounding areas? I guess that's a stupid question since you're asking about housing... I'm curious to see the campus and the actual facilities. I'd like to live off-campus, but either within walking distance to the school or very close to the light rail. I've heard Platt Park, Wash Park, Capital Hill, and University Park are pretty popular areas for students.
Well the school was gorgeous. They just had a snowstorm last week so it snowed a bit while I was there and there was still snow on the ground. The law building is pristine. Practically brand new. They also have a state of the art fitness center called the Ritchie Center. It has a rock climbing wall, olympic size pool, basketball court/hokey rink, etc.
The area around the school is not a bad neigborhood but it is a little bit older. I checked out a few of the on-campus housing buildings. They were decent but nothing spectacular.
I prefer to live around Wash Park, Capitol Hill, Platt Park or DT. I checked out Washington Park and really liked the area. Now I just have to figure out how to find an apartment/roommates!
The calendar for 2010/2011 is now up. Orientation starts on August 9th. I'm going to try to move in the beginning of August.
