I am a Strategic Communication major at the University of Denver, also currently pursuing a minor in Business Administration. In my spare time (or what little of it I have), I enjoy venturing into the mountains to backpack and mountain bike. During my time at DU so far, I have been admitted to the Daniels College of Business, founded the DU Men's Club Lacrosse Team, and received an award for Club Officer of the Year 2014. Being a native of Chicago, I am no stranger to hard work and have held jobs in several industries, from hedge funds to moving companies to forest preserves. I intend to continue my education in the city of Denver and, with some luck, find a job in Colorado.

This occurrence, once thought of as an outlier in the University of Denver area’s crime history, is now becoming more common than ever before. Even on campus, it seems that nobody is safe from the riff-raff that the wealthy university draws to its gates. Continue reading
