Over the summer the University of Denver Spirit Committee was formed to build awareness of school spirit. The main purpose of the organization is to create synergy among the various organizations and individuals on campus to promote school spirit. According to DUSC co-chair Joey Leon, the following has been accomplished:
- The DU Cheerleading Squad has been selected for the upcoming year.
- Interest in the DU Pep Band is at an all-time high and they will perform at every Saturday night home hockey game this season, as well as the Friday night CC game.
- A bus trip for students will be organized for the Feb. 4th hockey game in Colorado Springs against Colorado College
- This year's Homecoming Weekend will feature many new events for students and their parents
- The DU Grilling Society tailgates and BBQ's before the hockey games will be bigger and many campus organizations will participate
- This year's Student Season Ticket Campout was the largest ever, thanks in part to all the planning that was done over the summer
