  • Colorado Free University
    John Hand had a theory: for any problem a person might have, someone in their local community has a solution. To that end, he founded Colorado Free University, continuing a tradition that began with the Denver Free University of the 1970s and early '80s. Whereas the Denver Free University was created as a political move to make education more accessible, the Colorado incarnation sets its sights on simple personal betterment, becoming more of a learning network than a school. All of its teachers are independent contractors culled from the local community, and together they helm skill-based and enrichment classes for adults, spanning a range of artistic, humanitarian, and business disciplines. Students can receive training in foreign languages or ASL, business or digital marketing, or acting, visual arts, or woodworking. The school's facilities also accommodate CompuSkills computer-training classes, which progress from basic sessions in computer operation to advanced sessions in photoshopping a ghost out of a family portrait. There are cooking classes, foreign language courses, and style classes, all of which turn out well-rounded pupils. The campus's 89-seat John Hand Theater, meanwhile, hosts intimate performances from local Firehouse Theater Company and Spotlight Theatre Company.

  • University of Denver - Admission-Undergraduate
    Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.

  • Spanish is Fun
    Spanish Is Fun founder Silvia Cubillos Velez knows that learning Spanish will be of great practical use in her students’ lives and careers, but the school’s goals don’t stop there. "We want people to be enchanted with the classes so they, too, can love the language and the culture," she told Viva Colorado. Though she traveled to Spain to complete her language education, Velez retains a deep love for the traditions of her Colombian homeland, and accordingly makes sure to weave Latin American literature and culture into her classes. No matter what age or ability level they teach, the school’s staff of native Spanish speakers focus on communication rather than just conjugating verbs and memorizing vocabulary. Their formula has now been bringing students toward comprehension and fluency for more than a decade. Instructors immerse language learners in Spanish through techniques such as leading them in discussion groups or dunking them in a replica of the Alhambra fountain. They’ll also often swap classes to familiarize students with an array of accents and sounds, making full use of backgrounds that range from South America to Europe.

  • Denver University Pioneers Men's Basketball
    Both the male and female DU Pioneers execute ally-oops in Magness Arena all season long, combining athletic prowess with top-notch coaching to thrill the hoops-loving masses. The men?s team, led by senior captain Kyle Lewis, starts the season backed by last year?s 15-game home court winning streak, the ninth longest in the nation and the fourth sweatiest in the Rockies. The women?s team returns this year with four of its five starters from last season, and a 18-13 record produced under the consummate leadership of head coach Erik Johnson. Once the last last-second three-pointer has swished, the players will happily sign their John Hancocks on shirts, photos, basketballs, and firstborn sons.

  • Iris Reading
    There is now more writing available on the Internet than the sum of all books ever written by millions of monkeys at millions of typewriters.

With this Groupon, $60 gets you a one-day, five-hour class (a $199 value), which is ideal for breaking old reading habits across the knee with a spinning, backbreaking bookmark and replacing them with more effective techniques.

Iris has taught speed-reading courses to HSBC, one of Europe?s largest banks, as well as other financial and professional firms. The average person in the United States reads about one Groupon per minute. Iris's website says that most students finish the Iris Reading Program reading two to five times faster without losing comprehension. That means an exceptional student could end up reading five Groupons per minute, which equal one ? la recherche du temps perdu per week. Speed reading is great for students who have heavy reading assignments, providing an excellent alternative to hauling massive books at trucker speed, wheelbarrow speed, and crane speed. With your new speed-reading skills, you'll be able to fly through embarrassing backlogs of Twitter and Facebook updates, perhaps discovering to your surprise that your sister is married. The skills and knowledge you'll gain from lightning-fast re-readings of survival manuals and ancient Mayan religious texts will also leave you handily prepared for the galactic alignment of 2012, providing an impressive advantage over business rivals. Iris is currently working with several public schools in Chicago to help students learn more efficient reading skills, and undergrads at New York University and the University of Chicago have successfully completed Iris courses and now spend less time on textbook reading and more time on dolphin racing. Classes are held in Boston's financial district on Saturdays and Sundays; click here for dates and times. Your Groupon gets you the five-hour course, which is much more thorough and promises higher results than the one-hour free classes Iris occasionally offers.
