CU Buff Stuff: Thanksgiving Protocols

November 26th, 2014

Turkey day is nearly upon us students! ‘Tis the season of being thankful. What are you thankful for? Answers should include but not be limited to: family, friends, a good education, living and/or going to school in COLORADO, our basketball team, and so much more. I know the majority of students aren’t staying in Boulder let alone on campus for break but I’ll still do my best to let you know how to make the best out of this much-needed holiday break.   First things first, be involved with thanksgiving dinner, and your involvement should be more than just eating. Whether you’re a good... Read More

CU-Boulder: 3 reasons why it’s great to be an international university

November 19th, 2014

  I read an article the other day that made me think about past experiences here at CU. We have such great but non-American architecture to our campus, and the overall “vibe” that Boulder gives off is unanimously unique. Well, I’m still proud to be an American but I’m also proud of our school for being ranked No. 1 in the state for sending and receiving students internationally. Here’s the list for why it’s great we’re an international university.   You may not realize but the culture of Boulder is far different than the majority of Colorado, and than our country. One... Read More

Spectacular Mars Meteor Shower; CU Aerospace Made Big Contribution

November 13th, 2014

  In case you students are too busy with your own studies to stay up to date with our school’s aerospace engineering department, tune into this article. We all know about Mars but scientists at CU Boulder are trying to know more. So, about a year ago we launched a space shuttle that just recently slid into Mars’ orbit. A mere 442 million mile one-way trip.   The reason I like to bring things like this up is because most students don’t realize how awesome of a research university we are, in all categories. For example, we’re the number-one funded public university in the nation... Read More

Black Friday: How to Prepare as a College Student

November 5th, 2014

  A good friend of mine once said, that he loves the smell of fall, the taste of winter, and the sound of spring. Is this a famous quote yet?!! Anyways, besides the fact that fall smells especially delightful as far as seasons go, it also means to get ready to spend a lot of money   You see, every year Black Friday takes on a new role. A bigger and badder role. I’ve never been considered a trust fund baby, I’ve paid for most of what I own, so anytime I’m buying gifts for others or myself I find the rock bottom deals. It’s an odd concept, but some people feel better paying full... Read More

Halloween: Have Fun but Stay Safe!

October 29th, 2014
Halloween in Boulder Colorado

  It’s finally here students, the weekend that is arguably the most dynamic out of the entire school year! Time to pretend you’re someone you desperately want to be or a celeb who you’d love to bash on. I was a “beaten up biebs” last year. I despise Bieber and thought it would be funny, unfortunately nobody understood. So, my first piece of advice is don’t overthink the costume idea and don’t offend diehard fans, they’re passionate!!!   My second piece of advice, which should be the first considering how important it is, BE SAFE. We all know how rowdy Boulder gets... Read More

Homecoming 2014: Get Ready to Get Rowdy!

October 23rd, 2014

  To those who read my post from last week, I apologize if this article comes across as reminiscent, but hey, it’s the 100 year homecoming anniversary, a date to be remembered!!! Yes, a date worthy of three consecutive exclamation points. I already talked about the events I find most worth checking out, but I’d like to emphasize on two of them.   The first event, taking place on Friday (tomorrow), is the Pearl Street Stampede. The main reason I recommend going to this event is it’s aimed to get everyone stoked on our football team and the hope they will pull their “stuff” together... Read More

Back to Boulder Homecoming Weekend

October 15th, 2014

  So, homecoming weekend is almost upon us! I’d rather talk about it this week even though homecoming is next week so everyone is fully prepared for a good time. The cool fact about this year’s homecoming? We’re celebrating 100 years of homecoming.   The cool part about homecoming in general is alumni or current students can equally enjoy it. Since this is my final homecoming as an undergrad, I’ll try and shed some light on the schedule for Back to Boulder, and which events should be the best to check out. Here’s the list:   Alumni Awards Ceremony: Check this out for... Read More

Why you should go to CU Football Games, Even Though We’re Not Any Good

October 8th, 2014

  To be completely honest, our football team has played like dirt the past few, or more than few, years. This is in part because we joined the Pac-12 back in June of 2010. However, I’m here to tell you other students why all of that does not matter, and it starts with being fans!   We all hear that cliché saying from some famous athlete or celebrity saying “I couldn’t have done it without you guys, THE FANS”. Now, I’m usually the guy to shake his head, thinking all they want is more attention and applause. This time, I gotta be the guy to tell you that without us as loyal... Read More

Fall is Here, Prepare Students!

October 1st, 2014

It seems that every year in Boulder we have abrupt seasonal shifts. I’m an environmental student but I’ll save you the time and boredom of explaining why this happens. Nonetheless, we all want to be ready for the change in weather. This is crucial to staying healthy. Staying healthy is crucial to getting good grades!   First and foremost, ladies, and I think I speak for every guy on the planet when I say this; please LOSE THE UGG BOOTS. These shoes/boots/stockings/whatever are the perfect balance of “I don’t want to look professional, I just want comfort.” If you have them, introduce... Read More

Job Interview Coming Up?

September 24th, 2014

  Whether you’re freshman or a super-senior undergrad, it’s never too early to set your horizons on that highly desired career. We’re not all in college to rack up student debt and make a bunch of friends. The first part tags along uninvited and the latter comes naturally. Instead, we’re here hoping to educate ourselves and stand out enough from the rest to find the Holy Grail (dream job).   Coming from a senior, believe me when I say that our school has exhaustive career resources, and don’t wait to check them out. I say this for a number of reasons. First, this will force... Read More

Why You Chose Boulder and Not foco.

September 17th, 2014

  First and foremost, this is not an attempt to bash FOCO or any CSU students/alumni/[fans]? I actually don’t mind Fort Collins and their school. The fact of the matter is, we need both schools and while the university and the town shape us as individuals, the towns and schools are awesome in their own ways. So why did you choose CU? Sure, we may know how to “out-party” CSU, scratch that, we DO know how to out-party them. But, that’s not why we’re here. Hopefully most of you chose CU for our academics, but there are many that make the final decision based off culture, whether realizing... Read More
