Patrick is a recent graduate from Grand Valley State University. He earned degrees in Criminal Justice and Environmental Studies, and excelled in Track and Field. Within his first few seasons, he twice qualified for the National Championships. Patrick decided to pursue other ventures his last two years of college, chiefly climbing and adventure photography. His love for photography and the outdoors landed him in Boulder shortly after his collegiate career, where he hopes to explore the community and show Boulderites what makes their home so unique. Besides checking out the city, you can find him hanging out at a local crag, falling down a mountain on two skis, or trying to check off the next 14er on his list

Humans have always had a complicated relationship with weather. Ancient cultures prayed and made offerings to gods in hopes of receiving conditions conducive to growing crops. Adverse weather, then, was often interpreted as displeasure on behalf of those same beings—a punishment for failing to observe proper rituals. It doesn’t take a history scholar to understand this impulse. Weather, now as then, is both an enemy and ally. On one hand, it provides everything from the raw material for food—sunlight driving photosynthesis, wind the primary method of plants spreading their seeds—to …

Sometimes, writing about art and theater feels a lot like falling down the proverbial rabbit hole as I try to find the angle to write about wandering through a haunted-theater immersive experience, getting splashed in a Halloween horror show in the basement of a spaghetti emporium, sweating through a DIY D&D in a comic shop, savoring (har har!) Sweeney Todd’s enraged high notes, and trying to quiet my howling dog in a public house. I’ve found myself in some odd and awkward scenarios. To update the metaphor, writing this column is a lot like drunk-clicking through an endless algorithm o…

An Ebio major by day, slam dunk champion by night. Meet Mak, my neighbor and current SlamJampalooza winner. Mak moved to Colorado from Alaska to attend CU Boulder and hone his mini-hoop skills. Every opportunity he gets, Mak travels around the world to scuba dive and fish. If you were to ask Mak how he would describe himself, he would say he's a mix between Shaq and Aquaman. An opportunist by nature, there is no doubt Mak helps make Boulder the intriguing place we can all call home. Thanks Makane!

"Besides the mountains, what really drew me to Colorado is the openness of the people, not just with each other, but also with activities and events," recalls Jake, a skateboard, snowboard, and slackline enthusiast. Other than trying to maintain his balance on various kinds of objects, Jake studies Neuroscience and Business at CU Boulder. You can find him either diving at Casa Bonita or at an Umphrey's McGee show, his favorite jam band. However, Jake promised me more than anything he loves sitting on the couch and playing some Rocket League after a long day. Thanks Jake!

It is difficult for most people to answer what their favorite movie is at the drop of a hat. Not for Cameran. Since April 17th of 2015, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 has been considered cinematic gold for this CU student. He claims to be able to quote the whole flick, and has seen it entirely too many times. Although, if you ask Cam if he wants to watch it, the probability he says no is slim to none. Cameran studies Environmental Science; however, his first priority is remaining free from dangers because, according to him, "security is a mission, not an intermission."

Meet Nick. Nick is a current CU Art major. He frequently creates ceramic pieces and psychedelia-themed paintings. Falling in love with art at a young age, he has been able to keep his passion alive by finding inspiration in just about everything. "I don't aim to make any statements with my work," he grins, "I just paint what I think would be fun." His current project will entail using all five senses to fully experience the artwork. Thanks Nick!
