The east wing of the Boettcher Complex — a distinctive pre-cast concrete structure that has served DU’s science, engineering and research mission since 1962 — has been torn down. The west wing and the auditorium have been renovated to provide new classroom arrangements and updated with improved heating, electrical, ventilation and safety systems. Although the DU Board of Trustees determined that the east side was too damaged to justify further investment, a group of preservationists from Historic Denver felt otherwise, fighting to designate Boettcher as a landmark structure, citing its midcentury Formalist architecture and its regional ties to the aerospace industry and post-World War II research. Still, the University opposed the designation and demolition on the building began Sept. 22. Read more about Boettcher and its history at www.du.edu/today.

National champion ski team visits White House
DU’s national championship ski team visited the White House Sept. 13 for NCAA Champions Day. “Winning the NCAA championship and having the president invite the team to the White House is an honor that everybody on this team will always remember,” says Nordic head coach Dave Stewart. “It is a true honor to be recognized by the president for the team’s accomplishments and to represent the University of Denver at our nation’s capital.” President Barack Obama welcomed to the White House more than 650 student athletes and 150 coaches and staff members from 32 schools across the nation. Gathering on the White House south lawn, the president offered his congratulations on the teams’ 2009–10 Division I NCAA championships. Teams from various sports lined up to participate in this tradition, which was started by the previous administration. In addition to congratulating them on their athletic achievements, President Obama acknowledged the athletes’ scholastic accomplishments, underscoring their ability to make the grades, as well as the goals, and lend credence to the term “student-athlete.” The Pioneers captured their third-straight national skiing title at the 2010 NCAA championships. It was their 21st national championship overall — the most in NCAA history. Combined with DU hockey’s seven national titles, the Pioneers have 28 team national championships, the eighth most in NCAA history behind Southern California (76), UCLA (71), Stanford (60), Oklahoma State (48), Arkansas (43), Michigan (31), and Penn State (30).

DU attracts record number of Boettcher Scholars
Boettcher Scholars — winners of the state’s most prestigious scholarship — are choosing DU in record numbers. This fall, the University of Denver welcomed 17 Boettcher Scholars, an institutional record and a number that brings DU’s roster of Boettcher scholars-in-residence to 58. “The Boettcher community here at DU is large and active, and current scholars work throughout the year recruiting prospective scholars,” says Boettcher Mentor Shawn Alfrey, assistant director of the University Honors Program. “Their sincere appreciation for what they experience as DU students has been a powerful incentive for each class of new scholars.” The Colorado-based Boettcher Scholarship Program began in 1952. The scholarship covers virtually all expenses, including tuition, books, and a living stipend for students who demonstrate the potential to make significant contributions and choose to further their education in Colorado. The Boettcher Foundation awards 40 scholarships each year. This year’s scholarship winners were selected from more than 1,300 applicants on the basis of their academic performance, demonstrated ability, outstanding character and their participation and leadership in both school and community activities. To qualify, students must rank among the top 5 percent of their graduating class and score at least 1,200 on the critical reading and math sections of the SAT or 27 on the ACT. Scholarships cover 12 academic quarters as long as scholars maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA. While the Boettcher Scholarship ends with the fourth year, DU funds a fifth year for students who pursue a dual undergraduate and master’s degree program. Approximately 75 percent of scholars take advantage of the numerous dual-degree programs, Alfrey says.

Scout Troop 5’s centennial to mark 100 years ‘by the book’
It isn’t a coincidence that the neckerchiefs of Boy Scout Troop 5 are crimson and gold, their logo sports a covered wagon and their nickname is the Pioneers. DU faculty and staffers helped form Troop 5 back in 1910, and the troop has met in University Hall or the United Methodist Church across South University Boulevard ever since. A century later, Troop 5’s members are still camping in the snow, hiking 14ers, rafting rivers, building campfires, learning to cook, working a compass, playing games, singing songs, walking old ladies across the street and earning merit badges by the hundreds. They recently celebrated something even more special: the troop’s 100th birthday. “We’re the oldest continually operating troop west of the Mississippi,” says Scoutmaster Scott Dory, a former Eagle Scout from Colorado Springs, Colo. Troops elsewhere in the West also claim centennial status this year, with little absolute proof as to which troop is older, he says. Still, Troop 5 celebrated on Sept. 11. “We’re all about the same age,” Dory says, noting that the uncertainty is because Scouting began as a movement, not an organization. Scouting for Boys was written in 1908 by Robert Baden-Powell as training tips for existing groups. It was released in six parts in Britain and became an instant hit, spawning Scout groups throughout the world that wanted to try out Baden-Powell’s ideas. “People started forming troops on their own based on what was in the book,” Dory says, noting that Troop 5 may have started that way. Today, there are more than 28 million Scouts in 160 countries and territories. More than 300 million people have been Scouts since the first 20 boys gathered in England in August 1907, and more than 2 million youths have become Eagle Scouts, the group’s highest distinction. Dory acknowledges that Scouting membership has declined a bit over the years, but he feels optimistic that the movement’s future is bright. Outdoor activities continue to draw boys, many of whom don’t get to camp even though they live in a premier camping state. Then, too, Scouting stays abreast of the times, offering merit badges in modern skills and appealing to boys who have other interests and lots of demands on their time. It’s working, Dory says, because Scouting is evolving. But Scouting also works because it stays tethered to core principles that have appealed to young people for decades. The Boy Scout Oath and Boy Scout Law, which emphasize character and fitness, haven’t changed for 100 years. “I met a gentleman who was telling me about being a Scout in the 1930s and it wasn’t much different,” Dory says. “They’re actually reintroducing historical merit badges that have been discontinued, such as signaling.” >>www.troop5denver.org

Class of 2010 dedicates peace pole
Nestled among the pines and evergreens surrounding DU’s Evans Chapel is a peaceful concrete plaza passed by scores of students, faculty and visitors every day. This is also the site where the Class of 2010 chose to place and dedicate its gift to DU: a peace pole. The 10-foot-tall, seven-sided limestone pole features the words “May peace prevail on Earth” in eight different languages. According to Tuyen Bui, an alumna from the Class of 2010 and one of the presenters at the dedication, the pole is both the physical remembrance of the Class of 2010 and an enduring symbol of the values of the University. The pole will be erected later this fall. According to Chancellor Robert Coombe, the peace pole will be a place for students of all races, backgrounds and cultures to come together. “This amazing gift will stand for generations as a lasting and important part of the University,” he said. “Peace is one of the things we all hope for and the desire for it binds us all together as humans.” About 50 students, faculty, staff and alumni from the Class of 2010 attended a dedication Sept. 21, including Lance Tsosie, who represented the Native American Student Alliance and shared a Navajo story about peace. Peace poles are one of the most recognized international symbols of peace in the world. There have been more than 200,000 peace poles placed throughout the world as part of the World Peace Prayer Society’s Peace Pole Project. The event culminated with a “sending forth the cranes.” Students had recently been at the Driscoll Bridge folding origami cranes, a symbol of peace. Participants at the dedication were asked to take a crane and pass it on — so that the message of peace continues to grow.

Alums take on Hollywood with their own independent feature
As a DU student, Mardana Mayginnes traveled the so-called “loneliest road in America” — the Nevada stretch of U.S. 50 between California and Utah — several times each year as he drove back and forth between campus and his home in northern California. After graduation, when Mayginnes (BA English ’06) and his college buddy Colin Michael Day (BA theater ’06) moved to Hollywood and decided to make their own feature film, Mayginnes already had their location in mind. “I used to drive this [road] to school every year, and I would always encounter random things that just blew my mind,” he says. “One of the towns has 1,000 people in it, but 20 years ago it had 15,000 to 20,000 people because there was an active mine. When that shut down all the people had to move, so it’s like a modern-day ghost town.” Mayginnes and Day had moved to Hollywood in 2006 to begin DU alum Colin Michael Day (left) stars in The Loneliest Road in America, an their careers in show business. Mayginnes got a job at a commercial independent drama scripted and directed by his friend and fellow alum Mardana production house, where he met a host of people who had come to Mayginnes. Hollywood to make their own films but had gotten sidetracked by the daily grind. “In L.A. everyone wants to make a movie, but they don’t,” Mayginnes says. The pair decided to try to beat the odds and make their own independent feature. Scripted and directed by Mayginnes and starring Day, The Loneliest Road in America took a month to shoot and four months to edit, at a total cost of around $100,000. It was shot on location in Colorado, Nevada and California. The film started making the festival rounds in March 2010, taking a bronze medal at the Park City Film & Music Festival and nabbing screenings at L.A.’s Method Fest, Florida’s Delray Beach Film Festival and the Reno Film Festival, among others. “It’s done everything for me,” Mayginnes says of the film. “I get lots of jobs in the commercial world because of it, and once my next feature is ready to go I’ll be able to get funding, no doubt about it. And I’ll get actors as well. They’ll be down because they know I can do it.” >>http://loneliestroadinamerica.com

Social network Foursquare not for squares
Take a walk around the University of Denver and you’ll see signs everywhere pointing out places to study, info on fitness memberships and even a special on ice cream. Of course, the signs are invisible to the naked eye. Savvy travelers need a WiFi-connected device or a smart phone with GPS and the Foursquare application. Turn on, tune in and join the conversation. Foursquare is one of the social media apps changing the media landscape. Instead of depending on professional reporters to alert others to a good deal or a fine restaurant, social media users turn to each other. Yelp and TripAdvisor, for example, create giant databases of user-generated comments and reviews. Foursquare — with about 3 million users — does that, too. But instead of requiring a user to sit down at a computer and type in a location or desired service, Foursquare lets users turn on the application and see what’s around them based on their location. Foursquare users walking the DU campus can check in at the Penrose Library. Once there, “tips” section user Joseph K. (users are only identified by a first name and an initial) suggests checking out the extensive DVD collection. Foursquare users can “check in” at marked locations, indicating to friends where they are or have been, and then upload those check-ins to other social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Check in enough at one site and become the “mayor” of that location. Users around campus suggest light rail as the best route to the Ritchie Center, discuss alternate memberships for swimmers who want to use the El Pomar Natatorium without a full fitness center membership, and recommend the excellent spicy chicken bowl deal at the Tokyo Bowl restaurant. If spicy chicken doesn’t sound good, Paul D. suggests the chicken kabob sandwich at Pete’s University Park Café up the street. And there are deals for Foursquare users only. At the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream store near campus, users can check in and unlock a secret discount, a buy-one-get-one cone deal. The mayor of Ben and Jerry’s gets a free extra scoop to boot. And then there’s always school work. “Need a quick place to stop and do some brief work?” asks Peter R. “Check the second-story alcove overlooking the commons and hang out with the flags.”

Fashion forward
Colorado inspires student’s clothing line
rin Bleakley wants women to show off their inner beauty by expressing it on the outside. “It’s about making people feel confident,” Bleakley says of the aim of her selfmade fashion label, Erin Kathleen Couture. The 21-year-old University of Denver senior says confidence was something she, like many women, had to learn. Now, you’ll see her strut across campus in vibrant colors, textured patterns and high, high heels. “Everywhere I go, people stare,” she admits. But that’s OK with her. In fact, it gives her a chance to tell people about her clothing line. That’s how she got the idea to start her line in the first place. “A lot of people would ask where I got my clothes, and I’d tell them I made it,” she says. “So then I started making dresses for formals, and I started making a 16-piece collection, and people started to buy them.” Now she’s completed the fourth collection for her line. She sells the clothes online at www.erinkathleencouture.com as well as in a handful of boutiques in Colorado and Texas. Bleakley says she had trouble finding well-fitting and flattering clothes for her thin, yet athletic, build. So she simply started making her own, and later formed Erin Kathleen Couture in 2008. She had financial backing from her father, but her parents still had their doubts. “They thought every girl wants to be a fashion designer,” Bleakley says. “They asked me how I was going to set myself apart.” She knew a little hard work and optimism wouldn’t hurt. “I have an idea for what people like and what looks good,” she says. “It took off from there.” Her line — which targets mostly 17–35-year-olds — was envisioned as consisting of “conservative pieces that are really cute and stand out but have a certain sexiness about them.” She thinks about what she would wear and that’s what she designs. Think faux fur vests, tunics, leggings and patterned jackets; all items run under $100. The items are what Bleakley calls young, alluring and flirty. Some are fitting, some are flow-y and all of them have color. Her clothes also are one-size-fits-all. “You don’t believe it until you see it, but a lot of my pieces have hidden elastic and smocking and one skirt in particular can fit anything from a [size] zero to a 12 or 14.” The sizing was her idea, as are all of her designs. She makes a special effort to find unique fabric, she says, and she’s constantly thinking of new ideas. Her notebooks and binders are filled with sketches; she takes her camera wherever she goes so she can snap shots of landscape or anything she considers beautiful that may provoke design ideas. She finds Colorado particularly inspirational, she says. She sends her sketches to two seamstresses who live outside Kansas City, Bleakley’s hometown. They make just a handful of each design and they almost always sell, Bleakley explains. After she graduates from DU, Bleakley plans to go to fashion school in Los Angeles to learn more of the basics and the industry and hopes to work under another designer while still designing herself. One thing that sets her apart, she says, is her pending undergraduate degree. “I’m doing the whole college thing — I did go to undergrad, I joined a sorority. I’m getting a business degree. I didn’t just go to fashion school. I learned the basics first,” she says, “and I think that impresses people.”

Student driving toward a different career

L

ots of students leave DU with dreams of careers practicing law or starting companies or producing Hollywood blockbusters. Jamie Dick wants to make a career out of turning left. Dick, a senior real estate and construction management major from Albuquerque, N.M., says very matter-of-factly that he’d like to get to paid to race cars — a goal he’s been driving toward since he was 10 years old. And he hasn’t let off the gas needed to obtain the goal since enrolling at DU, either. “I would like to end up with a multi-million dollar contract with a NASCAR team,” Dick says. “I’d like to race as long as I can. In a couple of years, if I’m not able to get paid, I’ll have to stop. But that’s down the road.” Dick started his racing career on small dirt tracks around Albuquerque in go-karts and then worked his way up through more competitive racing series and bigger cars. Although Dick hasn’t won a race recently, he has been able to string together enough strong finishes to try out newer and tougher racing series. Dick currently races in two of the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing’s (NASCAR) “minor league” series. During the 2010 racing season, Dick has driven in NASCAR’s K&N West series, which is based primarily in the Western United States and features cars that are slightly smaller than those driven by stars like Dale Earnhardt Jr. or Tony Stewart. He’ll also compete in the nationwide Camping World Truck series, which feature souped-up trucks with lots of horsepower and lots of talent behind the wheel. Dick’s goal is to compete on NASCAR’s, and perhaps all of racing’s biggest stage, the Sprint Cup. “Ever since I showed some promise in go-karts the plan was to push me ahead,” Dick explains. “Part of the plan was not to stay in a series too long and get complacent.” Mike Naake, crew chief and manager of Dick’s racing team, has been in stock car racing for more than 25 years and says Dick has the talent to get to racing’s upper echelons. But it’s something Dick will have to attack with utmost dedication. “Out of a thousand, only one gets through. It’s a tough sport,” Naake says from the team shop in Roseville, Calif. “You have to be in the right place at the right time. And you need off-track skills to help you attract money.” In addition to working as the main mechanic for Dick’s car and training the pit crew, Naake acts as a kind of coach to the 21-year-old driver. He’s tried to get Dick to become more aggressive in his driving style. Stay up on the wheel and go fast, Naake tells Dick, just don’t wreck the car. Naake has even resorted

Courtesy of Jamie Dick

to a little tomfoolery to drive his point home. “We’ve told him to get mad and told him that one of the guys is taking his girlfriend out for dinner that night,” Naake recalls with a laugh. Right now, Dick is getting a little help from dad when it comes time to pay for a competitive racing team. In return, Jimmy Dick — a former race driver himself — plasters the side of Jamie’s cars with the colors of Viva Automotive Group, a chain of car dealerships he owns in El Paso, Texas.

Gubernatorial candidates make their cases in campus political forum
John Hickenlooper and Dan Maes were quick to discuss the poor state of Colorado’s economy and high unemployment rates in a candidates’ forum at the University of Denver on Sept. 14. But the big question was just what they would do about the issues if elected governor. “Every single part of the state is upside down,” said Hickenlooper, the Democratic nominee, during his hour-long session of questions from talk show host and moderator Aaron Harber. Maes waited offstage while the Denver mayor addressed his answers to a crowd of roughly 300 people; Maes followed. Hickenlooper’s ultimate solution to prompt economic recovery is being a proponent of business. “We need to change our culture so we can be a magnet for small businesses,” he said. He added that it’s imperative to work with small business to uphold ethical and environmental standards. Helping businesses grow, he said, means helping them to get started, hire people and grow more rapidly. “If we can do that, it allows us to focus on some of the real critical issues that need more attention, like education,” he said. Maes agreed that small businesses were key to the success of the state but expressed his desire for a hands-off approach by downsizing state government. Lowering taxes on small businesses would help them thrive and create more jobs. Eighty percent of the state’s business is small business, Maes said. Sponsored by the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition and 36 other community advocacy organizations, the forum also emphasized concerns of people with disabilities. Around 20 percent of Coloradans have some sort of disability, and fewer than half of those had jobs even when the economy was healthy. Hickenlooper said he would take on the state’s disability problem as he did Denver’s homelessness problem when he took office in 2003. Fighting for the homeless to get housing, medication, counseling and job training proved more effective than just treating their physical ailments at a hospital and then putting them back on the streets, he said. Hickenlooper said as mayor he encouraged smaller businesses, such as cafes, to give jobs to homeless people. Maes told the disabled people in the audience that “we need more of a dialogue than an answer.” He said there needs to be less of a tax burden for them and their care, but also encouraged them to step up. Maes encouraged them to tell him — and other government officials — exactly what they need, and said he would work to champion those causes. He also expressed his intent to help fix the “disconnect” between educational and business communities and help all community members — disabled and otherwise — to find out what skill sets are in demand by employers and what kind of education will give them those skills. While Hickenlooper referred to his experience as Denver mayor throughout the afternoon, Maes, a political unknown until his nomination in August, partly used the forum to explain his background and political ideals. “The fact that I am standing before you today as the Republican nominee for governor states that the American dream is alive and well in the state of Colorado,” Maes said. “And government should not impede that dream. The government should get out of your way and provide you that dream. If I can do it, you can do it, too.” Tom Tancredo, the American Constitution Party candidate, was invited to the forum but was unable to participate due to a previous commitment.

Ghosts of DU
In celebration of Halloween this month, here are some of the most haunted tales — and buildings — at the University of Denver, according to historian Phil Goodstein (BA history ’75): Mary Reed Building and Margery Reed Hall might both be haunted by their namesakes. Margery Reed has supposedly been haunting actors for decades in the building that, until recently, housed DU’s theater program. Students have claimed strange whispering and echoes. Mary Reed herself has been spotted wandering the hallways of her namesake building. Some have complained of sudden cold drafts, others say lights turn on and off sporadically. And people may not know which floor they’ll end up on (or if they will) when in the building’s elevator. Mary Reed may have control of the building’s lift, which is the oldest working elevator in the state. Henry Buchtel, who acted as a DU chancellor and Colorado governor, doesn’t seem to like people throwing parties in his former residence, the historic Buchtel House. Guests say they’ve experienced cold breezes, thumping noises and slamming doors. Campus’s old Buchtel Chapel also was most likely haunted — which could be why it mysteriously burned down in the 1980s.
