My CU Journey

Meet Ethan.
Growing up on a cattle ranch in Rifle, Colo., Ethan always dreamed of attending CU. He never imagined he'd be running around Folsom Field as a Ralphie handler. It's just one of the many amazing opportunities he's had at CU.
Meet Ola.
Ola didn’t think college was in her future until she began concurrent enrollment while in high school. Then she set her sights on earning a four-year degree at CU.
Meet Keren.
Colorado’s breathtaking beauty drew Keren from Nigeria to CU. She quickly found a home and a campus community that helped her spread her wings.
Meet Daniel.
Daniel found the transformative education he was seeking at CU Denver, as well as a supportive community that has made the campus his home away from home.
Meet Lee.
A nontraditional student from Pueblo who has found a whole new world at UCCS. “It’s not just me saying I could do it, it’s the CU system that said I could do it. They believe in me.”
Meet Shamika. 
As a first-generation college student now earning her PhD in information science, Shamika recognizes that "it's hard to be something that you've never seen." For this reason, she's driven to forge a path for other Black women and create a lasting legacy in the world.
