CU Denver sprang to life last week when approximately 700 students moved into Campus Village, the university’s student housing complex. New and returning students were greeted by CU Denver Chancellor Dorothy Horrell, Milo the Lynx and a small army of volunteers, who were on hand to make move-in an efficient and fun experience.
“It is wonderful to be able to meet with students, families and friends as we look to begin a new academic year,” said Horrell. “I am pleased that we are able to offer a place like Campus Village, which enables students to live where they learn.”
Campus Village is far more than a place for students to eat and sleep. Quinston Daugherty, director of housing and dining at CU Denver, noted that the environment at Campus Village provides ample opportunity for students to form lifelong relationships while also supporting students’ academic pursuits.
“The students are at the heart of what we do,” Daugherty said. “I love this time period in our students’ lives because we can help them successfully transition as new students or find continuing success as upperclassmen.”
