Studying in Downtown Denver

With Colorado’s more than 300 days of glorious sunshine each year, it’s always a good time to go outdoors for a little fun in the sun—and snow. You can head to the Rockies for snowboarding, skiing, rafting, camping, you name it. You can also stay within city limits and still find a thrill—hiking, biking and more. What could be better than living, studying and having fun in the place the world comes to play?
