Welcome to the Rockies
Denver—the ‘Mile High City’—sits along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains and has grown from a cow town to a dynamic metropolis with just over 2.8 million people. We enjoy the benefits of world-class museums and entertainment, fine dining and an international airport without losing our personality born from Wild West roots.
If you are into music festivals or ones that celebrate bacon, taking in football or extreme sports competitions—Colorado has it all. Just a short drive from campus you find some of the country’s best slopes for skiing, snowboarding, and outdoor adventure activities a plenty. With over 300 days of sunshine every year, if you don’t currently hike, bike, or fish you very well may by the time you leave our fair state (that is, if you do decide to leave!). It’s a great place to live, work, and play.
Living here is not only fun, it offers a wonderful quality of life. The location, people, weather, culture, and opportunities that abound in Denver are just some of the city’s virtues. We know moving to a new city and taking on the expense of graduate education is a big deal, but if the Lord is calling you to take that step, the real question becomes, “Why not do it in one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in the US?”
Denver Seminary’s campus is found in the southern part of the Denver Metro. You can walk off campus directly onto a network of 19,512 trails for your crack-of-dawn bike ride or sit and enjoy the gorgeous view of the mountains from nearly every bench and window on campus. Whether you contemplate the Lord on a log along the river or in our mountain resort style student center, the campus is designed for spiritual growth and renewal. Sit, pray, reflect, laugh with friends, or chat with a professor between classes—the campus is built for community.
