Best of the West

Travel + LeisureForbes and Vocativ.com have all named Denver one of their Top 10 Most Livable Cities. Denver is the third most bicycle-friendly large city in the US with 850+ miles of off-road bike paths in parks and has been named the sixteenth most walkable of the 50 largest US cities.

Outdoor Living

Nothing beats Denver's 300 days of sunshine every year and mild, dry climate, which makes it easy to get outside and enjoy hiking, biking, nature walks and camping. Denver has the nation's largest city park system and hundreds of miles of paved bike trails - not to mention the nearby Rocky Mountains, with some of the world's best year-round resort towns and skiing/snowboarding in nearby Vail, Aspen and Breckenridge, or take in a concert at the world famous Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater.

Financial + Tourism Center

The Toronto Globe & Mail hails Denver as "the #1 convention city in the world" – which translates into career opportunities for JWU grads. Denver's central location makes it a natural financial, manufacturing and tourism hub – and home to blue-chip companies like MillerCoors, Nestlé, Chipotle and United Airlines. In addition to the Mile High City's nationally recognized food scene (with many restaurants run or staffed by JWU alums), Colorado's 348 craft breweries, 100 wineries and 40+ distilleries are a huge contributor to the state's economy. 

Sports Mecca

If you're a sports fan, you can fire your competitive spirit–and capitalize on internship opportunities–through any of the city's 7 professional sports teams including Colorado Rockies, Denver Broncos, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche.
