Oct 17-22 Homecoming at CU Denver
This fall, several events have been organized that we hope will encourage alumni to come “home,” and that current students, faculty and staff will find engaging. Our goal is to create stronger connections with you and become a more vital piece of your network.
The inaugural Homecoming for CU Denver will take place the week of Oct. 16-22, culminating in the keynote speaker, Maya Angelou at the Paramount Theatre on Oct. 21, and a family BBQ in 9th Street Park on Oct. 22. In addition to these two fun events, the schools and colleges across CU Denver are hosting a myriad of other events.
