Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

April 3rd, 2016

What have you learned while living in the US? “Oh, so many things. The most important thing that I enjoy is that I see the differences in culture between mine and the culture here and I am able to kind of pick the parts that I like. You grow up doing something a certain way and then you see that there are many ways to do the same thing. You realize that there is no right and wrong. You can pretty much choose how you want to be.

According to a recent article on MSN, Boulder is America’s most educated city. It comes as no surprise, looking at Boulder’s wide diversity in  higher education programs. First, there’s University of Colorado Boulder: An expansive college that’s been in Boulder since 1877. Then, there’s Naropa: a liberal arts college that’s also one of America’s only buddhist universities. There’s also Boulder’s College of Massage Therapy: where people learn the art of relaxation. Finally, there’s Escoffier: School of Culinary Arts, which is a culinary... Read More

Why I Didn’t Vote..

November 4th, 2014

I didn’t vote today. Yes, I said it, I did not vote today. So shocking and so unproductive when it comes to my civil duty, right? How could I? How could I ever neglect the one thing we stand for here in America: democracy? My reason is certainly not going to go over well with everyone, nor is it going to make sense to those who find the candidates so compelling and believe in their right and duty to vote.   I was lucky to have been old enough to vote in the 2012 presidential race, it was my first vote ever in the second coming of the most historic day for African Americans in presidential... Read More

BestCollegeReviews recently put up a list of the fifty best college towns in America, and the number one slot was saved for none other than Boulder, Colorado.

Livability also gave Boulder the number one spot for the best college town back in 2013. Really, anyone living in Boulder knows just how great it is. In case anyone has... Read More
