I was thinking a lot over the weekend, how DU used to be. I was here, very rarely spoke, but I read and learned. I've 'known you and many, many people here, than I have known in my life! This is home to me.

DU has matured so much, We've all taken part in raising it...I like to think that anyway! We need that 'vibe' back! This place is home to so many people, I think we can do this! It's time!
