Hear From Our Students

Enrichment Program students appreciate the opportunity to pursue lifelong learning at the University of Denver, where quality instruction meets outstanding facilities. Hear what our students have to say …

 

Abby Cox

“I absolutely loved the History of the British Monarchy class — it couldn’t have been more timely. The class was not only enjoyable and engaging but also incredibly informative. Additionally, I have a strong appreciation for the literature courses, where we delve into a book and then collectively experience a play or movie related to the topic. The blend of traditional lectures and experiential learning truly enhances the overall educational experience.”

Melodye Turke

“I love the Enrichment classes because they keep my mind active and engaged. After 20 years the Enrichment Program has become an important part of my life.”

Meloyde is the Enrichment Program’s highest enroller of classes over its 20 years (has taken more than 130 courses since 2003).

Lori and Rudy Melena

“The students in Enrichment classes aren’t coming for a grade; they’re there for the love of learning, and so everyone is really involved with the classes and willing to participate. It’s just a great feeling.”
