Campus Happenings

Weekly Events & Updates

Week of Sept. 24, 2018

Editor’s note: The “Campus Happenings” e-newsletter is distributed weekly to students at University of Colorado Denver by the Division of Student Affairs. Those CU Denver events and updates are also available on this webpage. 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.


Masterpieces & Milkshakes: It's a jungle out paint your way through it! Come join us Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 5pm for our annual painting and sipping class. Bring your student ID to Tivoli #303 to purchase tickets for $10 each, cash or check only.

Read about it in “The Sentry”: Vietgone is DCPA’s new musical and a must-see. Alexander Elmore tells how song and superb storytelling depict the lives of two immigrant refugees trying to escape the destruction of the Vietnam War in this week’s “Sentry” featured article.

Spirit Week!
Check the Lynx Center Facebook page for the list of this week’s themes and post your pictures to the same page for a chance to win a CU Denver Mini Milo key chain.

Take a veteran’s word for it: Use your student services!
CU Denver has an abundance of incredible Disability Resources you might not know about. Check out this fall newsletter which features an inspirational student story about her experience with the Assistive Technology Lab, and why she encourages you to use your accommodations.

Complete a survey for a chance at a $50 VISA gift card:
Take a couple minutes to fill out the commuter survey to help the Downtown Denver Partnership gather information and ensure Denver has safe and affordable mobility choices. Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a drawing for one of five $50 gift cards.

Join us for a month of training opportunities focused on aspects of the Gallup StrengthsQuest assessment. Learn how you can use your strengths to encourage success and growth in academics, your career, and life. Attend as many sessions as you are able to. Open to students, staff & faculty.
