I’m going on nine years at DU (hard to believe!), and I’m consistently amazed at how much this campus has changed, grown, and developed since I first arrived in 2007. We’ve built new academic buildings and residence halls, completely renovated the library, and added stadium seats and new sports fields. This campus was stunning when I first showed up, but each new addition adds to the magic and regality found at the University of Denver.
I’ve been in and out of the office for the past month or so (mostly out) due to fall recruitment travel, and upon my arrival back on campus I’ve been absolutely amazed at the progress made on our two newest buildings: the Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering & Computer Science, and the Anna & John J. Sie International Relations Complex. Both buildings have been created to offer additional collaboration space for both students and faculty, offering dynamic spaces for inquiry and involvement. The University of Denver has been incredibly strategic about each new building on campus, keeping the student experience and academic environment as the main driver behind each change and addition.
Though we won’t be able to enjoy these two new buildings until the winter/spring of 2016, I invite you to take a look at their progress through the webcams on our construction updates website. In the meantime, the sketches of the final products are pictured below. I don’t know about you, but I am so excited to take advantage of these beautiful new facilities!
