World AIDS Day

Tivoli Multicultural Lounge

Take a stand against HIV/AIDS stigma, show your support and increase your awareness of HIV/AIDS by joining the LGBTQ Student Resource Center to recognize World AIDS Day.

Friday Funday

Noon-1 p.m.

West Court in the PE Building (PE104W)

Escape the office and join your friends and colleagues for Friday Funday to dive and duck your way through a friendly game of dodgeball. It’ll be great practice for the old school field games (like egg on a spoon) planned for Dec. 7. No experience or skill is necessary, but winners walk away with prizes.


MSU Denver women’s cross country

10: 15 a.m.

Perhaps inspired by #RunYourOwnRoad, the MSU Denver women's cross country team ran straight to this year’s NCAA Division II Championships. Support the team by hopping on a plane to Pittsburgh to cheer from the sidelines, or tune in to watch the action online at The race kicks off at 10:15 a.m. MST. Read more about the team's strong performance this season.
