Biographical / Historical
The Weekend College was a branch of the University of Denver that provided an opportunity for women to earn a Bachelor of Business Administration degree by attending classes on weekends. The Weekend College was first formed in 1980 by the Colorado Women's College (CWC), and originally offered three degrees - a BA in Business or Art, or a BS in Allied Health.
Following CWC's merger with the University of Denver in 1982, The Weekend College continued as a DU program under the Daniels College of Business. In 1983, the original degrees offered by The Weekend College were eliminated in favor of a single BBA degree. From 1983 to 1993, the position of Director of the Weekend College changed hands frequently and was held by multiple individuals. Tom Obrenski was the final interim director in 1992 prior to Michele Bloom's appointment as Executive Director in 1993.
Following this appointment, The Weekend College changed its name to The Women's College in 1993.
