In May of 2014, David Andrus, professor and former department head of the Department of Marketing, decided it was time to retire and pursue other activities. Andrus and his wife, Lynda, chose the beautiful mountain town of Castle Rock, CO as the place to build their retirement home. Living in Castle Rock makes it convenient for David and Lynda to visit their son in Lone Tree and their daughter in Castle Pines. Andrus is still a vital member of the Marketing Department as the instructor of on-line sections of Marketing Research and Marketing Management.
Professor Andrus has been enjoying his retirement in Colorado quite well. He spends his days hiking along the Rampart Range, attending Broncos football games, trying new cuisine at local restaurants, and river rafting in the summer time. From his new home, he has a beautiful view of Pikes Peak, which is perfect for watching sunsets from the “Colorado room” with his wife and dog. He continues to travel around the state, seeking his next adventure, such as mountain biking in Vail (one of his favorite spots to visit) or climbing the rocks at Garden of the Gods in Manitou Springs. Andrus said, “Retirement is treating me well; I have found relaxation and tranquility in my new surroundings and also the opportunity to be adventuresome.”
