It is just the right size. I like that there are an even number of grad students and undergrads. Denver is the best city ever. DU is in such a nice area and downtown and mountains are really close. I live off campus but I spend most of my time in the campus area because it has everything you would need. The filthy rich students who have to flaunt it every chance they get really get on my nerves. There are lots of them, but there are plenty of "real" people as well.
I only have 2 professors that know my name because they are very small classes. A lot of the general classes are big, but never huge. Class participation is great. There are geniuses in some of my classes. The students can be quite competitive, but there are also those who don't care or have the money to pay someone to do homework for them. There are some really cool unique classes, like next quarter I am taking "paranormal phenomena" and "international mobsters". The international studies department is great. People in this dept tend to be much more open minded and less conservative than the other departments. I have spent time outside of class with one professor.
Unfortunately, a poor person would definitely feel out of place at DU. I come from a middle class background and I have a scholarship and I feel a little out of place and even resentful of the students driving BMWs. Some girls get ridiculously dressed up for class; mini skirts, heels, designer bags. The student body tends to be a bit conservative, but there are definitely some radicals.

The stereotypes are somewhat true.
