University to kick off academic year with Block Party

Community event will also highlight Business School, education corridor

CU Denver Block Party set Aug. 23 in downtown Denver

DENVER - The block will rock on Thursday, Aug. 23.

The University of Colorado Denver celebrates the grand opening of its new Business School and the start of the 2012-13 academic year with a first-ever Block Party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event features cuisine from Denver's favorite food trucks, music by some of the city's hottest bands, a rock-climbing wall, an urban zip line and useful academic information. It will take place in front of the Business School on Lawrence Street between 14th and 15th streets.

The Block Party is a celebration of our growing campus community and our community partners as we kick-off the new academic year, according to Genia Larson, director of the Office of Outreach, Events and Alumni Relations. She said the event will highlight the amazing work and talent of students, faculty and staff at CU Denver. It will also bring attention to the CU Denver "education corridor" into downtown Denver.

"It is events like this that allow us to come together and celebrate who we are, what we have done and where we are going as an institution and as a community," Larson said.

The event is free.
