“I have really enjoyed my graduate experience here at MSU Denver, completing my undergrad here a few years ago was such a great experience. Working on completing my master’s degree, I genuinely feel supported, from my professors to my program manager, and my fellow peers. I have had a positive experience being both an alumni as well as a student once again”.
