A one-of-a-kind academic experience, the Creativity & Entrepreneurship community teaches students how to identify an existing problem or tap into their personal dream, and turn it into a successful business venture. Over the course of the year, students learn the basics of writing a business plan and what steps are necessary to become an entrepreneur. By enhancing each student’s creative potential and learning how creativity is part of business and economic survival, C&E cultivates an entrepreneurial mind-set that supports student innovation.
Students in this LLC interact with peers who share similar creative drive and entrepreneurial ambition. The community consists of students from all backgrounds and majors, and this becomes an asset as students share ideas, discuss options, and work in teams to problem solve entrepreneurial situations.

Why I joined the C&E LLC: I joined C&E because I heard it was a great way to meet people that have the same interests as you. Plus the class sounded really interesting and perfect for me!!
Favorite part of being in an LLC: My favorite part of being in the LLC is living in the hallway. We are all so close and it is so much fun being around a group of people that are so diverse but yet have very similar passions.
Favorite LLC/DU Activities: My Favorite activities we have done are the ropes courses and ziplining that we got to do on our retreat. I have great memories from our retreat including being scared out of my mind when the other cabin snuck into ours, hid, and jumped out at us when we came down the stairs!
