DU students react to restaurant closings

In the last two quarters at DU several businesses in the University area have either closed temporarily due to renovations for a new restaurant and business, or they have closed completely. The businesses that have closed are Nova frozen yogurt, Redford’s Tavern, and Noodles and Company.

Many students aren’t happy with these businesses decisions to close or sell. DU graduate student Kaela Martins was frustrated with the closing of Nova.

“It has been kind of hard because I’m a part of the DU Club Basketball team and that was our routine, pretty much after every game or practice we would go over to Nova.” Continue reading

A student’s perspective on the housing problem at DU

This audio slideshow features a students perspective on how difficult it is to obtain housing on and off campus. I really wanted to get a student perspective since students are the people who are impacted by this the most. I did this by interviewing Dana Reegen, who is a student who has had difficulties receiving housing as well as difficulties finding housing for the summer and next school year.

I took photos during various days after my interview with Dana. I tried to take photos of things that she mentioned, such as the different apartment buildings that DU offers to the juniors and seniors to live in. Since the DU housing fair that was mentioned was only put on during winter quarter I took a screenshot of the promotion that is still on DU’s housing page. I also took screenshots of what the dates and prices were to live in DU housing during the summer because I think that it is important for other people to know why this is an issue for students. The photos went in that particular order that I put them in because I tried to match up photos I had taken of things that Dana had said during her interview because it gives viewers a visual as to what she is talking about.

The slideshow is comprised of photos of various members of FSL participating in Delta Zeta’s most recent philanthropy event, Big Man on Campus. It also shows how faternities and sororities advertise their philanthropy events through different means.

Fraternities and Sororities across the nation are often portrayed in media as partiers. There are incidents that support this stereotype, this is not always the case and members of Fraternity and Sorority life across the country work hard to change this stereotype.

At the University of Denver there are many different fraternities and sororities on campus. There are seven Interfraternity Council Chapters, seven Panhellenic Association Chapters, five Multicultural Greek Council Chapters, and three National Pan-Hellenic Council Chapters.

Each of these 22 chapters has a philanthropy that they support through fundraising events. Sigma Chi’s philanthropy is Huntsman Cancer Institute, Delta Zeta supports The Starkey Hearing Foundation, and Delta Delta Delta supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, just to name a few.
