UDenver Question

<p>Does anybody know how it is going to UDenver and not doing a winter sport (ex. skiing, snowboarding)? I haven't decided to got yet, but I'm interested in the music program and I'm worried that on weekends in the winter, I'll be a bit stuck. </p>

<p>How part of the school is skiing? Will I feel a bit disconnected and have a harder time socially if I'm not a big skier/snowboarder? </p>


<p>My son is a rising senior at the University of Denver and has had a great time there. He does snowboard some but it's not a major part of his life....he goes once or twice during the winter season and that's about it. There are a lot of students who don't go to the slopes at all, some who go occaisionally and some who go a lot. It's really no different than students who go to school in New York....some indulge in theater or clubs a lot, some once in a while, and some never do.</p>

<p>There is a lot to do at DU and in Denver and my son has done a lot of it....museums, clubs, restaurants, theater and music....including the performances at the wonderful facilities right on campus. He has heard politicians speak on campus and gone to hockey games at Magness Arena...and he has gone to Broncos games as well.</p>

<p>When you go to Denver you will meet a lot of people and you will end up with a group of friends similar to you....if you are not into winter sports, you probably won't be best friends with the students who are really in to it. But you will have a group of friends just the same and you won't feel lonely or miss the others. And, of course, there is no reason not to hit the slopes once in a while anyway...it's one more wonderful experience to have.</p>
