Rachel Goodman, a master’s candidate at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies who's also pursuing a graduate certificate in religious studies, seeks to change how people think about a country's “development.” Since undergrad, Goodman has sought avenues for change that put research into real-world practice.
Blake Ballard (BA ’19) came to DU to study computer science, but he quickly realized he needed to make a change. He switched to art, a major he “didn’t realize was feasible.” Since then, he’s come to appreciate the possibilities of being an artistic scholar and creator at DU.
When Steve Johnson (BSME '67) chose the University of Denver for his undergraduate education, two factors mattered most: He wanted a good program in mechanical engineering and, as a first-generation college student from a low-income family in Portland, Oregon, he needed significant financial aid. He also had an interest in music.
