Value of a DU Experience

What can you expect from your experience at the University of Denver? Small classes and personal attention from faculty? Certainly. An unbeatable location with access to world-class mountain activities? No question. But what are the qualities that truly set DU apart from the rest? What will set you apart once you have graduated?

In today’s job market, it has become increasingly imperative to be able to say you’ve actually done something. At DU, we understand that “doing something” can take many different forms. Whether you study abroad, pursue an internship, lead a community organization, relate research to a business plan, or conduct important fieldwork under the tutelage of one of our renowned professors, DU uniquely and meaningfully prepares you to apply your education right away.

Some recent statistics:

  • Each year DU allocates more than $375,000 in student research grants at the undergraduate level.
  • 70% of our students study abroad, ranking us 3rd in the nation.
  • 78% of our students contribute a collective 540,000 hours of volunteer service annually, and DU has earned a national spot on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
  • 65% of our students complete an internship during their time at DU.
  • 22% of our graduates go on to enroll in advanced degree programs within one year of graduation (Want to find out where our students are pursuing their graduate degrees and recent graduate employment statistics? Download the class of 2011 survey results).

Our students are taking advantage of the many resources available to them both on and off campus. Make sure to join them in their endeavors and make the most of your time at the University of Denver!
