New To Yoga? A 3-Step Beginner’s Guide For Starting Out

October 29th, 2019

  I remember the first time I unrolled a yoga mat. I was eighteen years old, shy, and slightly terrified. This feeling is not uncommon. In fact, it’s quite normal when tackling unfamiliar territory of any kind. Yoga, as a discipline, is made up of several unique layers, with Asana (physical postures) being one of, if not the most popular (alongside meditation: Dhyana). As a multifaceted practice, it may feel overwhelming to know where to begin if you’re a new student. What approach do you take first in order to reap benefits in the long run without hindrance? For the purposes of introducing... Read More

5 Amazing Restaurants to Try in Boulder

October 23rd, 2019

I love going to eat in Boulder (I love going out to eat in general—who doesn’t?)

Winding down the day at a nice place with a few friends and drinks is one of my favorite pastimes. Sometimes picking out a new restaurant can always feel like a gamble; you never really know what you’ll get, especially because there are plenty of options in Boulder. Well, I got you, because these are some restaurants you certainly must try in Boulder; you really can’t go wrong... Read More

Best Cheap Drinks in Boulder

September 10th, 2019

One of the things I love about Boulder is the number of places to get cheap drinks due to the large college population! Truly, this town is the town where you can you get a lot of strong drinks (sometimes served in pitcher form) for a decent price. After living in NYC for a year—and being scared by having to pay $18 for a single red bull vodka at a bar once—I am very here for Boulder’s cheap prices. Look no further for a guide to the best deal drinks in Boulder, and I’ll see you there. 1. Illegal Pete’s Illegal Pete’s is low-key the king of good, cheap drinks in Boulder! They have two... Read More

Who Would Win In A Fight?

August 30th, 2019

The Rocky Mountain Showdown has notoriously brought out the worst (or best) of the rivalry between CU and CSU. Each year, the Rams and Buffs compete not only on the field but off the field, too. Students wear their schools gear, talk mad sh** to each other, and pray that their team wins. This year, the CSU mascot Cam the Ram died before making it to Sports Authority Field. Some think that his death was a bad omen, causing the Ram’s to lose the game, while others believe that Cam sacrificed himself for the sins of the CSU kicker. Either way though, the Buffs came out on top this year. The... Read More

Top 3 Coffee Shops in Boulder

August 29th, 2019

One of my favorite things to do is go to cute local coffee shops on occasion! I love the variety of coffee shops, each one having a different little pizazz and style; makes paying $5 for a coffee (kinda) worth it if it’s a cute shop with a good atmosphere. In Boulder, there is no shortage of great coffee shops, and here are a few of the best. 1. The Laughing Goat Ah, The Laughing Goat is a favorite of the Boulder coffee scene and it makes sense why.

Thriving and Surviving your first CU party

August 25th, 2019

As an incoming freshman, you’re going to hear a bunch of different things about the college party scene, some may be true and some may not. As a freshman, you should definitely go to at least one party to decide if you like going out or not. Partying is not for everyone, but you owe it to your social self to try it at least once. When I was a freshman, my roommate and I were wondering how you even hear about parties. She came back one day and said that someone told her to just wonder on the hill and walk into any party you hear/see. To me, that was super intimidating because I didn’t know... Read More

New Quirky Millennial Comedy “That’s So Boulder!”

August 23rd, 2019

Ah, Boulder. The city so renowned for its quirkiness that the name itself has become an adjective. GCM Media and J2 Media are looking to capitalize on said quirkiness with a new TV show based on the city called That’s So Boulder! (yes, with the exclamation point and all…) The show highlights a group of quirky friends in Boulder (have I said quirky already? I really wanted to emphasize quirky) who are the most stereotyped stereotypes of Boulder rich kid millennials who are incapable of “adulting” and are being cut off from daddy’s trust fund. Characters of the show... Read More

It’s the end of summer…or is it?

August 23rd, 2019

School may be starting in a few days, but that doesn’t mean your summer has to come to a halt. Summer doesn’t technically end until September 21st, which means you still have a month of sunny skies, and warm weather. You now just have to share some of the time in your day with classes and homework. A couple of suggestions of some fun things you can still do even when school starts are going on hikes, hanging out on pearl street, checking out live music at the Fox, Boulder theater, or Red Rocks, swimming in the creek, camping on the weekends, and dartying (day-partying) with your friends. Hiking... Read More

The Beginnings of Boulder

August 22nd, 2019

The story of Boulder, Colorado begins roughly 300 million years ago when our iconic Flatirons formed the seabed of the ocean that covered the better part of the North American continent. This sea, the Western Interior Seaway, ate away at the sandstone beneath it until it began to resemble the shape of the Flatirons we all know and love. It was not until about 40 million years ago that the Flatirons shifted into their present position when the Rocky Mountains were created, becoming part of the “Fountain Formation.” This formation includes other spectacular Colorado landmarks including the Red... Read More

On Making the Leap: Tips for Being a New Student in Boulder  

August 20th, 2019
new student tips for CU Boulder

The transition into college can be difficult to negotiate, especially coming from Springfield, Missouri to Boulder, Colorado. It would be difficult to imagine two places so opposite to each other. While Boulder may not seem like a big place to everyone; especially when one considers that my hometown of Springfield contains a larger population than Boulder, it was a significant change of pace. So, why does Boulder seem like a colossus compared to Springfield? Perhaps it is because Springfield is such a quiet place, earning the nickname, “the Queen of the Ozarks,” from many of the locals. There... Read More

Harmful Algae in Boulder Waters

August 20th, 2019

City of Boulder is warning residents to keep children and animals away from harmful blue-green algae that has been spotted in Wonderland Lake and Thunderbird Lake. This means that there is no swimming, wading, boating, or animals allowed in this water. Fishing is still allowed, but city officials warn that any fish caught should be thoroughly cleaned and guts should be discarded of. Blue-green algae, also known as cyanobacteria, grow during the summer in slow-moving lakes or ponds. Some cyanobacteria species can produce cyanotoxins during algal blooms which can be harmful at elevated levels if... Read More
