Stay socially connected and have fun with text, voice and video all in one place.

Join the MSU Denver Campus Recreation Discord Server.

Discord is a great way to stay connected with your communities and friends over voice, video and text in an all-in-one communication app. Chat and have fun in organized text-channels, talk to friends in open-voice channels, plan your next virtual meetup, or just keep in touch throughout the day. Video calls for up to 10 people is a newly added feature!

• Organized text-channels give you plenty of room to share videos, coordinate meetups, or just talk about your day without clogging up a group chat. Wave hello over video, easily watch friends stream their games, gather up for a screen-sharing session any time, or express yourself with all the GIFs and reactions you need.

• Open voice-channels make group hangouts easy. Grab a seat in a voice channel when you are free, and friends can instantly jump in without having to call. Up to 100 can join at the same time!

• There's an app for that! You can seamlessly switch between Discord on mobile and desktop.

Campus Recreation will be hosting daily Jackbox Party games, playing Kahoot Trivia Challenges, posting links to workouts you can do from home, sharing socially-distant engagement ideas and so much more!

Create your free account, check out our server and start having some stress-relieving fun with your friends and classmates today!

Virtual Engagement @ MSU Denver

A coalition formed on our campus to centralize the efforts of departments and offices through MSU Denver to bring students virtual engagement opportunities. Our very own Dave Lamothe was invited to join this group of involved, caring individuals. Visit to learn more about how you can connect with your classmates and community.

Metropolitan State University of Denver

Mission: Metropolitan State University of Denver’s mission is to provide a high-quality, accessible, enriching education that prepares students for successful careers, post-graduate education and lifelong learning in a multicultural, global and technological society. To fulfill its mission, MSU Denver’s diverse university community engages the community at large in scholarly inquiry, creative activity and the application of knowledge.
Vision: Metropolitan State University of Denver’s vision is to become the preeminent public urban university in the nation.
Values: MSU Denver’s mission, vision, ongoing operations and strategic planning are informed by a core set of values that define who we are—and aspire to be — as a University. They are: Diversity, Access, Entrepreneurship, Respect, and Community.

At Campus Recreation, we encourage an inclusive, open and welcoming atmosphere by designing and offering challenging programs for all skill levels. We endeavor to maintain programs that include and welcome people of all races, creeds, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, learning styles, economic levels, ages, regions of origin and physical abilities. We recognize that all participants bring a level of experience, skill and ability. We will not make assumptions about others’ ability, interest or experience. We will continually evaluate our policies and practices to ensure equitable access to the full range of services we provide. This statement is the result of the collaborative efforts of Campus Recreation student and professional staff.

MSU Denver acknowledges the indigenous people and land of Auraria and the broader Denver area.

As we gather here today, we honor and acknowledge that we are on the traditional territories and ancestral homelands of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Nations. This area was also the site of trade, hunting, gathering, and healing for many other Native Nations: The Lakota, Ute, Kiowa, Comanche, Apache, Shoshone, and others.

We recognize the Indigenous peoples as the original stewards of the land, water, the plants, and animals who called this place home.  As these words of acknowledgment are spoken and heard, the ties that these nations have to their traditional homelands are renewed and reaffirmed. Let us also acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory. We respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we gather. We pay our respect to them and give thanks to all Tribal Nations and the ancestors of this place.

We also want to recognize the community and families of Auraria displaced by the creation of this campus for MSU Denver to have a place that we now call home.
