Hi students. Jamie and Peter here. With spooky season around the corner, we thought we would bring you a Halloween joke: What kind of horses do ghosts ride? Night mares!  

We wanted to let you know the top five things on our mind: 

We have weekly Senate meetings every Friday in Tivoli 640 from 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm that are open to the public. The first 30 minutes of the meeting are dedicated for guest speakers. The following guest speakers are on our next few agendas: 

Oct. 25: Lily Griego, Partnership Coordinator at US Census Bureau,  and Rosemary Rodriguez, Executive Director of Together We Count Colorado, talking about increasing student engagement in the 2020 Census.  

Nov. 1: Chancellor Horrell giving updates about our campus. 

Nov. 8: Patrick O’Rourke, Vice President of University Counsel and Secretary of the Board of Regent giving a training on Free Speech. 

Nov. 15: Amber Long, Executive Director for the Lola and Rob Salazar Wellness Center giving updates about the Wellness Center. 

It’s a strong lineup and we hope you will join us in some of these meetings to ask important questions and bring concerns of your own. 

CU Denver going green? Sort of. This year we’re passionate about expanding compost efforts to all CU Denver buildings. We’re about to roll out a campus wide petition to collect data on student support. If you see the petition floating around in one of your classes, through a friend, or at one of our events, feel free to give us a signature if this is something you’re interested in. 

Another initiative that has continued through SGA for the past three years are Spirit Thursdays. These monthly events focus on promoting school spirit and pride. We have a Sip N Paint event coming up November 14th to encourage campus community and involvement. We’ll keep you updated with more details about it soon. Keep an eye out for our flyers and posters posted throughout campus for future events as well.  

Did you know that your affiliated student organization can receive funding for events and conferences from our Finance and Funding Board? We will work with your group to fund your awesome events or help you attend conferences. Your Student Organizations are an integral part of our campus and we are here to help you thrive.

We have been working hard to bring a week dedicated to wellness. This Wellness Week will take place Dec. 2 through Dec. 5 in various locations on the Auraria Campus. There will be an event for every pillar of wellness (physical, emotional, creative, financial, social, environmental, and spiritual) so come out and learn something or just meet a friend.  

As always, feel free to come chat in Tivoli 301 or whenever you see us on campus. Keep kicking midterms in the butt and soon it will be fall break.
