The winter 2010 quarter has begun

The long winter break has come and gone and the first week of the winter quarter 2010 here at the Josef Korbel School is upon us. Ben Cherrington Hall is alive once again with chatter about holiday adventures and excitement abounds over winter courses such as international development in cross cultural perspectives, human rights and international security and comparative public policy and finance to name a few. Of course the snow receded over the holidays but we received a light shower yesterday, generating an additional 4-6 inches at most of the resorts. This doesn’t do us much good however, with rather nippy temperatures(highs in the teens), only the cold blooded would venture to the slopes today. The beauty is that by next Tuesday the forecast calls for 50 degrees and sunny! Give thanks for over 300 days of sunshine and the incredible climate in this state… makes the winter months way more manageable than the East coast (I can say that, I’m from Upstate NY-I know cold weather).

On a different note, the priority deadline is quickly approaching (January 15th) so please submit your application and supplemental materials on or before this date. As mentioned in a previous blog entry, we have rolling admissions so we will consider applications after the priority deadline but it is space available only at that point. To expedite the processing of your materials, send them directly to the Office of Graduate Studies. Their mailing address is:

Office of Graduate Studies

University of Denver
Mary Reed Building
Room 5
2199 S. University Blvd.
Denver, CO 80208

Next Thursday’s blog: Top 10 application no nos from the Korbel graduate admissions office’s student employees

Until then, be in touch with our office if you have any questions;, 303.871.2544.

Warm regards,


Nicole Vilegi
Associate Director of Graduate Admissions

  1. Is there any way to get a preview of the Top 10 Application no-nos before there is only one day left in this next application round? The idea is fun and great.
