Editor’s note: The “Campus Happenings” e-newsletter is distributed weekly during the fall and spring semesters to students at University of Colorado Denver by the Division of Student Affairs. During the summer we continue to update our webpage with events and announcements. If you have items you’d like to contribute, please complete the submission form by noon on Thursday for the following week.


Gone fishing! We'll see you in the fall: Congratulations to our new graduates! We're taking a break from our weekly student events & updates e-newsletter for the summer but we'll continue updating the events and announcements on this "Campus Happenings " webpage. Got an item you'd like to contribute? Please complete the submission form by noon on Thursday for the following week.

Looking for a job? There are plenty of great opportunities to work right here on campus. If you're a writer, you may even want to join the Student Affairs Communications team - writing and editing this "Campus Happenings" newsletter.

Student Wellness Center preparing to open: The climbing wall is up, the pool’s full and the Lola & Rob Salazar Student Wellness Center’s planning to open this summer! If you’re a student enrolled in summer classes, you’ll have access to the facility once it opens. Not taking summer classes? Discounted student memberships will be available for purchase. Graduating? No worries. You’ll still have access to the facility for the number of semesters you’ve paid wellness center fees between Fall 2015 and Spring 2018. For questions and more information, contact the Wellness & Recreation Services at

Confused about how to register for classes?
Lucky for you, the Registrar has an online guide to help you out. Act quickly. You don’t want your classes to fill up without you!  

Here’s to a healthy summer: Trying to unglue yourself from your phone? Need pointers on how to kill it at your next interview? Head over to the May issue of 
Student Health 101 for a bunch of tips to help you stay on top of your game over the summer and keep it going into next semester.

Have a safe summer! We're looking forward to seeing you back on campus soon.
