Since its founding in 1864, DU has played an integral role in the cultural, social, economic and educational life of the city it calls home. Beyond its local contribution, the University is known nationally and internationally for preparing students to blaze trails in government, business, education, health care, sports, law, the arts-wherever there is a need for principled leadership, critical assessment and creative thinking.When you become a student at DU, you become part of a culture that emphasizes academic excellence, global responsibility, community engagement and creative approaches to problem solving.This Women's College tradition dates back to 1930, when the school was known as the Colorado Women's College. Based upon the medieval practice in which the lord of the manor gathered all of his people to the main hall for an annual festival, the hanging of the greens calls for seniors to celebrate by festooning The Women's College with garlands of greenery.
