I had an excellent experience here.BrightJournalism
I had an excellent experience here.
It was a decent education without the rah-rah bullshit.
College is always what you make of it. Living in Downtown Denver is sweet (not like DU Denver...like...real Denver)and there are a ton events on and off campus.

I got a pretty solid job in my industry about 6 months after graduating and I am now in graduate school.

I never had an issue with financial aid/faculty/staff. Everyone was very accommodating.
A note - the bar is set pretty low as far as admissions goes...so you get some people in your gen-ed courses. There are some pretty ridiculous and/or have some issues that you wouldn't see (as much) somewhere like a more selective CSU -- which I also attended, briefly. Personally, I enjoy oddities sometimes, so it was annoying at worst for me. It's all about where you want to live and what your personality is like. I'm not a frat boy type guy or super interested in attending NCAA games... so a commuter, lesser-known school was perfect for me. The price was right too, at the time.

Question
Please I'm begging you do not go here.Biology
Please I'm begging you do not go here. It's the worst school I have ever attended and I am transferring this fall because I can no longer stand being a part of this fucking awful community. It's not a college it's just a really expensive high school with a bunch of students who don't care being taught by a bunch of teachers that don't care. I am a smart girl and I am a biology major and really passionate about what I do. I had a professor change the syllabus on me during midterms and she put the test on the day of my academic honors ceremony and when I talked to her about it she said I didn't look smart enough to be in the honors program. She failed me. I had a class in a geography department, the class was full of 40 students and only 32 desks so I did not have a seat the whole semester. I tried to meet with an academic adviser but they were no help at all. I have made no friends on campus because this is a commuter school and no one is interested in becoming friends. My teacher came to a lecture hall one day high as a kite. I'M HERE TO LEARN and teachers just do not give a fuck at all. I have had absolutely no positive experiences here and I just cannot believe I wasted so much money on such a shitty school. Fuck Metro.
