Jen Belden ’04 and Dave Belden ’04 both moved to Denver in 2008 after applying for and accepting job transfers there. Jen, of Pittsford, N.Y., and Dave, of New Providence, N.J., had been living in Arizona since graduating from RIT.
“We both loved Denver, so we decided to move here,” says Jen, who works as an advertising consultant for mywedding.com. Both Jen and Dave majored in hotel and resort management at RIT, and Dave works as the general manager of the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Denver.
Jen and Dave, who met during their freshman year at RIT in 2000, were chapter leaders in Phoenix, Ariz., and they wanted to continue to stay involved in their alumni community.
“We think it is very important and beneficial to everyone to get our alumni together,” says Jen. “It’s a great way to network and share the camaraderie of all of us having gone to RIT.”
Some of the Denver chapter’s activities include Colorado Rockies baseball games and RIT hockey games against AHA rival Air Force, as well as trips to museums, dinners and other social outings. The Beldens hope to increase the number of alumni activities in the future.
