Fall 2018/ Spring 2019

Art of Cooking: South American Street Food


We had a blast learning how to cook  Colombian Empanadas, Brazilian Acai bowls, Peruvian Ceviche, and Argentinian Carne Asada.

The chefs at Cook Street School of Cooking taught us precise knife skills, how to fillet a fish, and how to wrap Empanadas. We hope to see you all at the next one!

Bob Ross would have been proud of all of the paintings of African sunsets we made! The Milkshakes from Serendipity were delicious as well.

The instructors from Pinot’s Palette taught us how to create various textures and easy. accessible skills to make a beautiful painting. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the next Masterpieces and Milkshakes next semester!

Sleeping Beauty Ballet

Sleeping Beauty

The Colorado Ballet gracefully performed their rendition of the Disney classic Sleeping Beauty. Students ate Italian hors d’evours at the City Center and mingled before heading over to the Denver Performing Arts Center to see the dance!

This is one of many events that CU Denver Live! facilitates at the DPAC. More DPAC events will be coming this Fall!







Pumpkin Patch


Right here at your very own CU Denver Sports Field, we hosted a good, old fashioned pumpkin patch. Students could check in, grab a free pumpkin, decorate it, eat some fall snacks, and take pictures with the massive piles of leaves in front of our Fall photo booth.


We intended to bring an old Irish tradition that has cemented itself in American culture to CU Denver, so students who have never experienced a pumpkin patch had the opportunity to!



Nightmare Before Christmas Symphony

We hosted 2 nights of this event. Both of which comprised of a dinner at Uncle Joe’s Hong Kong Bistro. We ate a delicious 3 course meal of edamame, orange chicken, tofu soup, lo mein noodles, and Mango/ Tiramisu cakes! After these fine Eastern delicacies, we walked over and saw the Colorado Symphony Orchestra play the soundtrack to a live screening of the Nightmare Before Christmas.

For our crafting event this semester, we took students on a journey to Mexico with crafts like Ojos de Dios (Eye of God), Mexican Worry Dolls,  Hojalata (Tin art), Mexican yarn paintings, and fiesta flower bowls. While students constructed the craft of their choice, they could watch The Book of Life and enjoy a churro, cupcake, Mexican candy basket, or a cake pop from a table of desserts.
