Favorite thing about UCCS? Most days, around the lunch-time, you can find a game of pick-up basketball happening with students, staff, administrators and faculty at the Campus Recreation Center. I believe it says a lot about how tangible the staff, faculty and leadership really are at UCCS.

Fun fact about you?I team-teach a Freshman Seminar class at UCCS called "Baseball: Hot dogs, Home runs, and Life" - and it's awesome.
