DU is a monument to upper middle class white privilege
The small class sizes help to make students accountable for the course material and to allow more people to participate in class discussion than would at a bigger school. The school is very business oriented, and as such, the Gender and Women's Studies Department, in which I am a student, is a joke. If you are interested in Gender and Women's Studies, I would strongly recommend that you consider a different college.
Most DU students are from upper middle class families. Clothing on campus is a big marker of status, with many students wearing designer clothes. Basically if you are anything but white, upper middle class, able bodied, or heterosexual, you are likely to feel uncomfortable on campus. You will likely have to put up with people saying inflammatory, intolerant and offensive things in your classes, and sometimes the faculty does not step in to diffuse those comments.
