The task of maintaining the University is a year-round effort to make DU’s campus one of the most beautiful in the nation. The facilities crew keeps the grounds and arboretum in great shape. The athletic groundskeepers and Ritchie Center staff have been busy all summer with PASS camps for kids, coaching camps and clinics, and rugby. Major construction projects on the south end of campus include the Ritchie School of Engineering and Sie International Relations Complex with nearly round the clock work to meet a fall session opening.

A big shout-out to the construction crews and the facilities management and planning teams who make the University of Denver such a beautiful place.

Have a great Labor Day!

  1. Nice win by our soccer team vs. Northwestern! Always good to beat Big 10 schools at anything. Have a nice labor day, all. BTW, that dome in the photo above on the engineering building looks pretty nice in person. Kind of a silvery look. Along with the blue cone on the international building, DU working in some non-copper colors into the landscape.
