Weekly Events & Updates

May, June, July, 2018

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.


Lola & Rob Salazar Student Wellness Center now open! Wondering about memberships? Check online .

Wellness Center Dedication: 
It started as a vision of student leaders and now it’s a reality. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, Aug. 1, for the Lola & Rob Salazar Student Wellness Center Dedication Event. We’ll gather outside the building at 10:30am, enjoy the ceremony at 11am, then join a tour to learn all about the services & resources available.  

Gone fishing! We'll see you in the fall: 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.

Looking for a student job?
 There are plenty of great opportunities to work right here on campus. Check out the campus-wide list of available jobs and apply online through the Career Center’s Handshake job source.  

New-look student bill: When you receive your student bill, you’ll notice that student fees are no longer listed individually. Instead, at the recommendation of the students on the Student Fee Review Committee, the fees are included as one Student Life Fee. The change was made to simplify your bill.​

Are you an incoming student? Get a leg up on your first year! CU Denver’s First Year Experiences (FYE) programs are designed to help new students, including transfer students, transition to college & CU Denver. Take the stress out of the transition with the ‘College Success’ program, get to know CU Denver’s Peer Advocate Leaders (PALs) with a First-Year Seminar class or engage with your community on important issues with the ‘Learning Communities’ program. Students who’ve taken FYE courses have been shown to be more successful and have a higher first semester GPA than those who didn’t. Check online for details and a full list of course offerings. Questions? Contact

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!  

School’s out for summer! Summer is a great time to catch up on everyday non-academic life while you’re out of class. Check out the latest edition of Student Health 101 for some helpful tips.

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