Did you know that CU Denver originated more than a century ago? Or that Auraria is a term derived from the Latin word for gold? If you’re looking for a quick lesson in CU Denver’s rich history, stop by the Lawrence Street Center lobby and visit our new interactive exhibit. Look at a life-sized timeline, accompanied by old and new photos of the community and its people over the years, or use a touchscreen to read stories from our past and present Lynx. The exhibit is open during normal building hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
