CU Denver Live! and the Office of Student Life joined forces last week to welcome new and returning students to the Denver Campus with the Auraria Campus.
Activities included information tables with representatives from campus organizations as well as live music and other entertainment. Students were treated to free food from Denver’s best food trucks -- they just had to show their current University photo ID when they stopped by for tickets to exchange for the food items.
The live entertainment included local artists Air Dubai and Jonny 5 from the Flobots as well as the hip-hop group, Prime Element.
