UPDATES

$30K to improve campus! Help pick which campus-improvement proposals get funded through Auraria PB (Participatory Budgeting). Stop by the table outside the Auraria Library to cast your vote Monday-Friday, Nov. 26 thru Dec. 3, from 10am – 2pm. The vote is open to all students. Follow @AurariaPB on Instagram & Facebook for the results.

Help us be more eco-friendly! The Students for Sustainability Club is attempting to expand composting across campus. The proposal would require a small increase to student fees which would be used to buy more composting bins, dumpsters and expand zero waste education. If you’re in favor, just
sign the petition.

Denver unveils a new on-demand transit shuttle:
This week’s “Sentry” featured article features a new form of public transit that mimics Lyft & Uber, launched by the city in an attempt to help with parking congestion and traffic.

Register for spring semester! Check your student portal to see if you have any alerts on your account that will prevent you from enrolling in classes. Then, enroll!  If you need help, a
step-by-step guide to registration is available online.

Heads up about @CUAnschutz: You may have heard that CU Anschutz Medical Campus will be transitioning its @ucdenver email and web addresses to @cuanschutz starting in early 2019. Email addresses for all students, staff & faculty with their primary location at CU Anschutz will be changed. The transition will happen on a rolling schedule and we’ll keep you 
updated on what to expect. Stay tuned!
