Dear parents and family members,
It is once again August—just before the start of a new
academic year and the time that the university begins to buzz.
staff are preparing for your students’ arrival with energy and enthusiasm.
While their work greatly influences your students’ success, parents and
families are vital partners in students’ journeys. With that in mind, I hope
you enjoy this edition of the CU Denver Parent
and Family e-newsletter.
In addition to the abundant opportunities for students to
engage in internships, community service, research and creative work, there is
a lot to look forward to this year at CU Denver. Students will kick off the
year at the CU
Denver Block Party, an annual festival in the heart of our thriving city
that showcases student resources, organizations and programs alongside food
trucks, games and live music. In the spring, the Student
Wellness Center will open its doors, welcoming students into a brand new
facility designed to be a “home away from home.” Among the fitness space,
3-court gymnasium, pool, student kitchen, study rooms and much more, students
will find new ways to connect with one another and to their studies.
I hope that this newsletter strengthens your connection to
CU Denver, so that together we can better support our students as they navigate
the opportunities and challenges of the upcoming academic year.
Our top priority is the success of our students and we value
and appreciate our partnership with you and with them. We welcome your feedback
about what you would like to see in your inbox every month. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your
Thanks, and happy reading!
