Health Center at Auraria Resources & Events

Cooking With Purpose

Food is nourishing, healing, and brings people together. Every meal is an opportunity to provide us with what our bodies need. But, making a balanced plate, or coming up with healthy tasty meal ideas can be challenging. The Health Center at Auraria is aiming to bridge this gap for students with the help of partnerships with MSU Denver’s Rowdy’s Corner as well as CU Denver and CCD’s Food Pantries.  Join us for hands on learning and the opportunity to prepare and take home nutritious meals.

SNAPlication Station

As part of our holistic wellbeing model the Health Center has partnered with Denver Inner City Parish to provide a monthly SNAPlication Station at the Auraria Library. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides eligible students with monthly food benefits, and many student do qualify! Join Alex, Lead Care Navigator every last Monday of the month.


She will be in room 210A from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. helping students sign up for SNAP and answer any questions related to the federal food assistance programs. Additionally, Alex will be able to connect you to additional resources across campus if need.

Dates: Jan. 29, Feb 26, March 25, April 29.


Get Creative

Studies show that there is a positive relationship between creativity and subjective well-being. The theory behind Art Therapy suggests drawing, coloring and painting can help you tune into and express anxieties, or difficult feelings you have trouble putting into words. And, no, you do not have to be an artist to Get Creative.


The Health Center at Auraria, in collaboration with the Auraria Campus Library and Project Angel Heart, have made it convenient to engage in self-experssion, offering a year-round creation station near the atrium of the library (all supplies provided). This also supports Project Angel Heart's mission of delivering nutritious meals to individuals diagnoesed with severe illnesses.
