Milo Turns One!
Happy birthday Milo!
Every great university has a mascot proudly supporting the community, and on February 18th we celebrated the 1st birthday of our cute, fuzzy, and incredibly energetic mascot Milo the Lynx.
Milo was created by the Student Government Association to create a sense of pride and identity for the CU Denver community. Milo (the name comes from a combination of “Mile High City” and “Lower Downtown”) exemplifies everything CU Denver represents and supports. Since he burst onto the scene last year, Milo has cheered on Club Sports teams, supported student and alumni events, and has even done some student recruiting.
He’s definitely one busy furball. The past year Milo has made over 150 appearances and this coming year expect to see more of him! We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the popular cat’s birthday than by throwing him an epic party.
At his birthday party, Milo was surrounded by 300 faculty and students who wanted to support him as he does for the university. The CU Denver Cheer and Dance team danced with Milo and he received many hugs and high-fives from students.
Milo is not just a mascot for CU Denver. He connects students and pulls the entire community together. Click here to find out where Milo will be next and find him on Facebook here.
Chancellor’s State of the Campus Address 2013
On October 30th, 2013 Chancellor Don Elliman spoke about the university’s accomplishments over the past year and new developments on both campuses. The chancellor addressed the Denver Campus and the Anschutz Medical Campus. All CU faculty, staff and students were invited to attend, and an audience Q&A followed the address.
During the address, Chancellor Elliman spoke passionately about the future of both the Denver and the Anschutz campuses. He spoke of putting the needs of the students first, by harnessing technology, developing new programs, increasing awareness of CU Denver and fostering student success. All of this will be done a number of ways, and the Chancellor encourages feedback from everyone, including students.
As the Chancellor stated, “the key to remaining competitive in the “new normal” of higher education will be remaining innovative.” AT CU Denver, we’re always changing and adjusting to meet the needs of our students and that includes student services, online learning, research operations, philanthropy and outreach.
The Chancellor’s address is just the tip of the iceberg. Along with change and innovation, a CU Denver education is also filled with experience, networking, strong relationships and confidence. Schedule a visit today to see what CU Denver can do for you.
