Metropolitan State University has been a gateway to opportunity through education for fifty years, and plans to continue for fifty more.
MSU will hold a 50th Anniversary Summer Soiree on June 4th, celebrating the school's history and impact on Denver's economy and culture - all are invited to join the gala on the Auraria Parkway campus.
MSU President, Stephen Jordan joins us to talk about the celebration, the history of Metropolitan State University and the school's plans for the future. In the 1960s the university offered two-year associates degrees in just six majors. Today there are 244 degree options including three master's degrees.
The future proposes programs that complimentary to other Colorado university programs, rather than competitive.
