CAMPUS HAPPENINGS   Student Events & Updates

Week of Dec. 10, 2018

Editor’s note: The “Campus Happenings” e-newsletter is distributed weekly to students at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus by the CU Anschutz Office of Campus Student Services. Details about these events and updates are also available online. Check in every Monday to find out what’s happening! If you have items you’d like to contribute, please complete the submission form by noon on Thursday for the following week.


Holiday break! CU Anschutz will be closed Monday, Dec. 24 & Tuesday, Dec. 25 for winter break and this newsletter will take a break, too. The newsletter will be back on Monday, Jan. 14. Campus services will be open the remainder of the break. Enjoy your holiday!

Donate to The Mitten Tree! The Strauss Health Sciences Library has hosted a mitten tree since the building opened in 2007. Please add mittens, gloves, hats, scarves and socks to the tree as decorations. Socks are the number one item requested by Comitis! We are also accepting toiletries and other cold weather items. We'll remove all items on January 2nd and donate to the Comitis Crisis Center. 

Donate canned fruit! Seriously. The CU Anschutz Student Food Pantry is in need of fruit donations. Pet supplies, too. And, you're in need of a community service stress break. So, combine it all by stopping by Campus Student Services, Ed 2 N, #3200, any day for the rest of the semester. Drop off your donations, create a holiday card for active duty military serving our country, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and say goodbye to your end of semester stress! Questions? Call 303.724.2866 or email us.
