WHY DID YOU CHOOSE DANIELS?

I chose DU for several reasons. Denver is an incredible location to start a career in real estate, and the University of Denver is well connected to professionals in the industry. Being able to connect with alumni in the industry, interact with professors who have experience in the field, and to compete in various competitions are experiences that drew me here.
