    The campuses is pretty small and classes are easy to get to. The whole school is close to home, and I just LOVE coming downtown! Even when its snowing, raining or just plain foggy, the campus and city always have a beautiful view.

    So far, the campus has been beautiful and the commute has been fairly pain free. It does cost about $4.50 to park every day, which is a pain, but they do provide free (you pay for it as part of your tuition) public transportation as long as you are a current student. I haven't had the pleasure of meeting any fellow students yet, and have only spoken with my teachers via email, but nothing in the registration or admissions process gave me any second thoughts at all.

    I absolutely love being a student at MSCD. The fact that it is one of three schools on the Auraria Campus means that there are even more students to interact with and an insane amount of diversity. The facilities and grounds of the school are well kept and very nice.

    The campus is great; it is a diverse environment where people speak freely about many topics. It is very difficult to not get involved. There are so many things to do, with clubs and organizations everywhere as well as fraternities. The only problem I would say is the campus is an Open Smoking campus. I am not a smoker and I do not enjoy the second hand smoke I get walking from class to class. Otherwise the campus is a very positive environment and very student oriented.
