Inclusivity, Creativity, and Community: Fostering Belonging on CU Denver’s Campus
Learning Hub Ambassadors can help students find communities here on campus through different student clubsOct 27, 2023
College life can be both exciting and challenging, especially for non-traditional, first-gen, immigrant students, adult learners, and those who commute to campus. However, at CU Denver, there are student clubs that go beyond the ordinary to create a sense of belonging and community. The Learning Hub Ambassadors explore three diverse student clubs that aim to make the college experience more enriching for our students.
Physics Identity and Expression (PIE) Club: Bridging STEM and Identity
Imagine a club that blends the world of physics with personal identity and community support. That's exactly what the Physics Identity and Expression, or PIE Club, at CU Denver is all about. PIE Club is more than just physics; it's about celebrating the many facets of identity while delving into STEM disciplines. Members discuss challenges, host mental health workshops, and engage in outreach events, all while building a supportive community. Whether you're a physics major or simply interested in STEM-related subjects, PIE Club welcomes you to join this diverse and inspiring community.
Student Filmmaking Club: Lights, Camera, Inclusivity
Lights, camera, action! The Student Filmmaking Club at CU Denver brings together aspiring filmmakers who can't wait until the spring semester to start creating movies. This club provides a unique opportunity for students to collaborate on creative film projects with larger crews and budgets. Beyond filmmaking, the club plans to host entertaining movie nights and guest speaker talks with industry professionals. With the green light on three exciting scripts, this club is proving that you don't need to wait to pursue your passion for cinema.
CU Denver Art Practices Club: Where Creativity Knows No Boundaries
Art transcends boundaries, and the CU Denver Art Practices Club embodies this philosophy. This entirely student-driven club is a melting pot of creativity, welcoming students from all majors. Their activities range from relaxing rock-painting sessions to craft fairs and installation events. Collaboration is at the heart of this club, fostering connections between artists and local galleries. One upcoming event, the Day of the Dead Collaborative, celebrates the art of remembrance. Students will create works of art to honor their loved ones, demonstrating that art has the power to connect people across cultures and backgrounds.
Student clubs at CU Denver exemplify the university's commitment to fostering inclusivity, creativity, and community among its diverse student body. Whether you're passionate about physics, filmmaking, or the arts, there's a place for you to belong and thrive on campus. Embrace the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals, explore your passions, and build lasting friendships.
