I have had the pleasure of attending Metro State College of Denver for a semester and I must say that of the four institutions I have attended (yes, I have moved around alot) this is by far the best. The staff and teachers are all very helpful and attentive; at least in the Biology dept. You can walk in for counseling with a department advisor fairly easily, and they are always willing to answer any questions or offer advice. I have never had any difficulty in the business office or the veterans affairs office, and have always been helped with any queries in a quick, efficient manner. I believe since it is strictly an undergraduate institution, the staff is able to focus on the students a little more, plus money is poured into undergraduate classes, instead of graduate courses. For example, the Biology dept. offers a 400-level Cadaver lab. If you are local to Denver and need to finish a Baccalaureate degree, go to Metro State. It shares a campus with Community College of Denver and University of Colorado at Denver.
