CU Real Estate Club - Professional Association Panel

The Real Estate Club had their last meeting of the fall semester, November 5, 2012, which focused on some of the top real estate professional associations. Both undergraduate and graduate real estate students enjoyed a panel presentation representing ULI, NAIOP, IREM, ICSC and DMCAR. Each representative talked about their organization’s mission, student memberships and upcoming events. Carl Koelbel represented ULI Young Leaders, Morgan Landers represented NAIOP Developing Leaders, Vicki Jenings represented IREM, Paul Sheppard represented ICSC Next Generation and Katie Kruger represented DMCAR. A huge thanks to all of the panelists who left the students with the excitement of joining one or more of these groups and getting involved with some stellar networking!

Homecoming 2012!

On Saturday, November 2, 2012, the CU real estate alumni celebrated CU’s Homecoming at the Leeds Tailgate Tent which was set up west of the B-School. The morning event was chilly but hot breakfast burritos, pastries, coffee and hot chocolate were plentiful! The Real Estate alums (Laura Spitzmiller and Neil Almy) who were working the real estate table gave away loads of prizes to the lucky attendees who won High/Low (card game). Prizes were donated by the Real Estate Center and Alumni Committee Chair, Erin Marilley. Good times and good food were enjoyed by all!

Very important visitors!

Children of Faculty and Staff came in to our offices this afternoon to receive a "treat"!

RE Development Students Tour Campus Construction Site

On a very snowy afternoon, students from Adam Massey’s CU Real Estate Development class took a tour of the Kittredge construction site. Les Nylund and Mike Anest from Kiewit Construction conducted the tour. They talked about constructing these buildings to last 100 years and putting everything in place to get the LEED Gold certification for the project. One interesting fact that the students learned was that buildings on campus have to be able to withstand 135 mph winds and about some of the special challenges that are created with that wind load. Several of the students lived in the Kittredge housing complex as freshmen and were impressed to hear about the amenities (air conditioning!) that will be available to the lucky students who will be able to move in Fall 2013.
