Deciding on what school to attend after high school is a daunting task, and I know for me, it was the first ‘big’ decision I ever had to make. Ultimately, visiting campus and touring DU (not once, but twice) helped me realize that the school just felt right, though it was a culmination of all the following factors that has made me so happy in my choice of college.
