What is Campus Life?
The Campus Life department runs activities, but more importantly we help clubs and organizations. We issue co-curricular transcripts to students upon request.
Periodically special activities and events are hosted by Student Life.
Research shows that one of the key factors impacting a college student’s success is his or her living arrangements. Studies show students who live on-campus are more likely to have a higher degree of satisfaction with their college experience, participate in co-curricular activities and return to college the following year as well as improve their personal and educational relationships. We offer a great opportunity for students to live on campus!

Health services are provided under the direction of a registered nurse and the campus physician. The Health Center is open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Students are seen on a drop-in basis. Appointments are needed for consultation with the physician.
Clubs & Organizations
We are committed to providing co-curricular activities that will assist students in the development of leadership skills and community service skills that compliment classroom education. Involvement in student organizations provides students with opportunities to grow as a citizen. We are excited to support student clubs and our staff and faculty are prepared to help you achieve your goals.
We offer free bus transportation from Denver International Airport at the beginning of each semester, as well as return transportation to DIA at the end of each semester. Dates will be posted on the website one semester in advance. These are the only college-sponsored travel arrangements to DIA available at no cost.
The Campus Security Office is located in the southeast corner of the Student Union. The Campus Security Officer distributes parking decals, regulates parking and vehicle traffic on campus, and patrols campus to provide a secure and safe place for the students. The Campus Security Officer will assist with vehicles that are inoperable and will, for certain vehicles, assist in unlocking a vehicle if someone has locked their keys inside their vehicle. Any crime committed on campus should be reported to the Campus Security Office.
