It's time for the 2014 Denver Metro Regional Science and Engineering Fair! We need help again with Display and Safety judges this year. This is a vital role  as all projects must be approved before the students are able to be judged. As always, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science does an amazing job hosting and usually provides free lunch vouchers to our volunteers. The time commitment is Wednesday March 5, from approximately 8am to 12pm. Even if you can only stay until 11am, please sign up and help by clicking here. Questions? Please contact zachary.d.richards@ulalaunch.com or

Hello AMC Campus! This year we have quite a few events planned for the coming school year. You can look forward to the following events:

Soap Drive for Local Shelters (NOV-end of school year)Soap flyer.jpg

Ideas for donations include: body soap, shampoo, conditioner and other bathroom amenities. An easy way to gather donations is to bring items provided in hotels back from trips. 

All donations can be placed in collection bins located in: 

  • Student Services Suite of ED2N 3rd floor
  • Dean's office in the School of Dentistry (Lazarra building, 3rd floor)
  •  Building 500 Student Lounge

The soap drive will be held throughout the year.

FEBRUARY 2014: RONALD McDONALD HOUSE


The Ronald McDonald house is an organization that runs purely on charitable donations and they use the money they get from these Pop Tabs to pay for food, lodging, housekeeping staff, and cleaning items.  Help us ease the financial and emotional burden of a family with a sick child. Want more information?  Go to  www.ronaldhouse.org

This year, the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the Community College of Denver have joined efforts to launch a campus-wide food drive competition! Feed the Need: Combating Hunger on the Auraria Campus is designed to bring the campus together by challenging groups to gather food items from January 28th through February 28th to benefit the food pantries on campus.  Student organizations as well as academic and administrative departments from all three institutions are invited to participate. Groups are encouraged to reach out to community resources to collect food items and enhance the amount of food collected.  The group to drop off the greatest amount of food (by weight) on collection day will be awarded the annual food collection trophy among other prizes for your team!

To register your group for the food drive competition, visit www.feedtheneedauraria.org

Also, we will be offering a series of EVENTS surrounding awareness on hunger and food insecurity, as well as resources for students/faculty/staff.  Additional events will include a Hunger Banquet and various educational workshops. For more information on these events, please visit http://www.feedtheneedauraria.org/#!untitled/cjg9

Paris Elementary/Anschutz Medical Campus Partnership

In order to connect with our surrounding Aurora schools, AMC Student Senate has developed a partnership with Paris Elementary School. Volunteers from all University programs are needed on an ongoing basis for the following programs:  

  • Saturday Sports Club
Every 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month (September-October, and April-May) from 9 am-12 pm, volunteers are needed to play different sports with ~ 80-90 Paris Elementary school students. Each Saturday there will be a different sport theme and volunteers will help instruct students on rules of the game.  This activity is for those volunteers who love to engage in physical activity and have fun with children!  
 

ONGOING EVENTS:
 
The Student Senate Philanthropy Opportunities Series

provides organizations outside the campus a  means to bring their information to the students of the Anschutz Medical Campus.  After the organization's presentation announcement has been sent via email, this website will be updated with the organization general information and contacts for future reference.  See our Fall 2010 Newsletterhere.
