my 2 cents: if you're going to college just to go to college, don't do it. if you want to go ski colorado, find a job and cheap housing with a couple roommates (you don't even need to know them necessarily) and make it happen. you don't need to be wasting tons of your parents money or going into debt or both.
when you grow up a bit and decide more definitively what it is you want to do, then go to a good school to get a useful degree and nock it out of the park.
Yeah, dont go to college undeclared, take a year off and kind of decide what you really are interested in and choose a college that offers good programs for that. DU is definitely better than Regis though for most things, they have a pretty solid reputation for most majors and are on the rise academically. Parties are fairly decent as well.
you totally can, but if you're priority is skiing and you're going to college just because its expected of you and its a way to get to colorado, you will probably not get the most out of your (very expensive) college education. don't go to school just to go to school and study some bullshit like business or philosophy or anthropology so you you can ski all the time. work, grow in the real world a bit, ski a lot, and when you start to think about the career you want to settle down with, then go to school and get a useful degree (engineering, economics, finance, computer science, etc) in your chosen field.
if i could do it again thats what i would have done.
Just to be the devils advocate, how will you learn what you want to do by skiing? Most people learn alot about themselves in college and what they want to do. College gives you so many tools and opportunities that you cant get anywhere else.
Just my view, of course it's expensive as fuck and isnt for everyone.
You realize that it's pretty common for straight men to fuck each other right? Sounds pretty steezy.~Session
Never went to school there but lived near it for a summer after I graduated college. It seems to be full of kids who play sports, there probably a lot of religious kids also since its a catholic school i believe. Its in an ok area, but once you step out onto federal blvd it get ghetto pretty quick. The biggest party I saw was about 10 kids sitting on a couch in there living room splitting a 12 pack.
I wasn't sayong he'd fins himself skiing. I was just reiterating what the guy above said. too many people go through 4 years of college, graduate, and still have no idea what to do with themselves. AKA a waste of time/money.

Its a small, overpriced, private, religious university in a pretty shitty part of Denver. Most students are girls going for a nursing degree or through the graduate nursing program. No real sport's teams either. The campus itself is pretty nice. Honestly though, I would choose pretty much any other CO university over Regis.
