History

The Tivoli has a fascinating history as a brewery, speakeasy, and most recently the student union of the Auraria campus. The building has its own stories to tell as the spirits of those who lived and died within its walls may still reside there. The Cryptoscience Society Investigates claims of a mysterious little girl who is said to haunt the Tivoli, along with a woman in white and shadowy figures.

The Cryptoscience Society was founded on July 2nd, 2006 (World UFO Day) as a student organization at the Metropolitan State University of Denver. The organization was honored with numerous awards for involvement on campus. We gained notoriety for hosting many successful events, such as; the Haunted History Tour, Mad Science Fair, and various guest speaker presentations. We created a space where the campus community had an open forum to discuss and explore topics outside the spectrum of established academic inquiry. We built a foundation of core membership through extensive investigator training, discussions, community partnership, and conducted first-hand investigation and research. We were happy to have institutionalized and legitimized our interests.

The official seal of the Crypto Science Society International Advisory Committee and Alumni Chapter

In 2010 the Alumni chapter was established as several members were moving on but still wanted to be connected. This extended our reach by accessing Alumni funds to go to the UFO Watcher Tower and the International UFO Congress in Phoenix Arizona.

Since our time in college, we have evolved to become more community-based, while maintaining a connection to our Alma mater and continuing to develop and refine our investigation methodology and continue to seek out anomalous events.
