A Boulderites guide to navigating Boulder’s neighborhoods … CU Boulder’s Main Campus. Boulder is a college town in the best possible way. The University of Colorado campus is plopped right in the center of town and sprawls for several blocks along Broadway street. Tree-lined walkways, old brick buildings, and the spacious Norlin Quad all make campus a central hub for students and professors alike. The Hill. Directly across from the CU Campus is the area known as “the Hill.” Chock full of restaurants, bars, shops, and rowdy student housing, the hill is a lively place to walk around... Read More

5 Things We DID Win This Election Season

November 13th, 2016

People, this has been a rough couple of months. It was bitter, it was convoluted, it was stressful, and it certainly did not end on a great note. In light of that, let’s take a moment to look at some things that actually DID go well last Tuesday: You can smoke weed in a lot more states now. Recreational marijuana is now legal in California, Nevada, and Massachusetts. Medical marijuana is also now legal in Florida, Arkansas, and North Dakota. The passage of these ballot measures means it’s legal to purchase, possess, and consume that Mary Jane, but this privilege is accompanied by establishing... Read More

Young Boulderites, Go Vote!

September 12th, 2016

We’re millennials. We haven’t lived through a war fought on our turf. We haven’t rebelled to join a revolution of new-age rock and roll. We haven’t joined an anti-war movement or burned our draft cards. We haven’t picketed for the right to vote and burned our bras. We haven’t experienced segregation first hand. We grew up knowing that we could drive, buy expensive things, go to whatever school we wanted, worship however we wanted, and date whoever we wanted to date. But these are privileges of the most sacred kind. Generations of people that came before us fought... Read More

August in Boulder means hot summer temperatures, students coming back to school, and summer events beginning to wind down. In order to make the most of these last few weeks of August, here are a couple things to keep in mind: School is starting up again. All month, the Hill has been a hotbed of college students moving out of their old places and into their new ones.

Attending the University of Colorado, Boulder is definitely one of the best decisions you could have made, so congratulations on passing your first test. Your choice is wise and sound. This is where you will spend your next four years … or five or six give or take a couple summer courses. The thing about college is that adults really love to ask you questions and give you vague, over-reaching advice about these next couple years. Truth is, of course it will be the best four years of your life. You are – for the first time – only accountable for yourself. There is no one there to tell you... Read More

“At the end of August, I’m moving to Pristina, Kosovo. I’ll be working as a high school social studies teacher at the American School of Kosova. Sometimes I have moments of extreme excitement for my upcoming adventures, then I have moments of nervousness, questioning, and anxiety. Like, how do you teach about the Holocaust and genocide to students who have witnessed a genocide? What challenges will I face? How will I adjust to life in Kosovo?
