I'm from Seattle and I'm moving to the Denver area to attend Regis University at the end of this month, so 3 weeks! I've never been to Denver, so I'm moving knowing only what I've found online! It seems like any apartment complex I find that looks good, I read the reviews and there's something about the police being there all the time, the neighborhood being dicey, gun shots heard; and I'm getting discouraged. What are safe areas to live in relatively close to Regis? I've looked at Federal Heights, Thornton, Westminster and other suburbs. My budget is no more then $800, I have a large dog, and I'd like a 2br. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
