Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

March 15th, 2017

Some people shy away from cameras – others jump in front of them. Peter Hurley, a world-renowned headshot photographer, has put his own spin on this. He believes that a good portrait requires that the camera doesn’t mess with the subject, but that the subject messes with the camera. Once someone loses sight of the insecurities provoked by the camera, they start to perform for it. People start to play with the camera. They stare into it as if they were playing head games. They treat it as if it were a person looking at them – a person they want to make an impression on. These two girls were... Read More

Rob is originally from San Diego, but grew up in Singapore. He studies integrative physiology at CU and is also an opposite hitter for CU Men’s Volleyball. Rob told me that he never took himself to be a natural athlete, but he has always loved to compete. He started playing volleyball in eighth grade when he was living in Singapore. After his senior year of high school, he came back to the U.S. to be a Buff. During his first year playing for CU, the team was lacking structure and struggling financially. Today, they are at Colorado Mesa University competing for a conference championship and a... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

February 1st, 2017

Meet Diana. She’s a CU Buff from Westminster, Colorado. After spending five weeks at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia last summer, Diana decided she wanted to attend school somewhere close to home. The humidity alone was enough to send her back to Colorado. She told me she likes to visit home a couple of times every month so she can be with her family… and take advantage of the delicious home cooked meals of course. Diana is now studying to be a graphic designer. In fact, I caught up with her just after she’d finished designing a movie poster in class.  Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of The Day!

October 22nd, 2016

Eva is a 22 year old student that is in Boulder attending a university and I loved interviewing this woman. Costa Rica, located in Central America is where this piece of joy is from. Movement is something that is in her everyday life, because movement makes things happen, movement is satisfying, and quite frankly movement is what has gotten her to Boulder. For example, Eva loves loves loves to snowboard! She feels like its her “flow” and and it’s the closest thing she can get to a tropical thrill. As far as I can see Eva is very active and a very driven young lady. Her mom is... Read More

Water in my opinion is the key to life. Makenna adds to this by stating that water is to say the least, relaxing and peaceful. Peace being something that we as humans have fought for and looked for now for centuries. Makenna, being a CU graduate, presents the idea that we’ve been looking for something that has been right here in front of our faces. Water! Though she never grew up near the ocean, she spent quite a while on Lake Michigan. There she realized that the water is peace, the water is life, the water is Home! Thanks Makenna!  Read More

Hey incoming freshman! There are only a couple more weeks until the start of your freshman year aka one of the most exciting years of your life!

Why Name a Lady Buffalo “Ralphie”?

March 23rd, 2016

This title question, and the more general “Why a buffalo for a mascot?” answered below. Time to brush up on Buff history. Ralphie is the female buffalo mascot for CU Boulder. But why does this female buffalo sport a male name? And why did CU choose a bison mascot in the first place? The tradition began in 1934 when the university newspaper selected “Buffaloes” as the nickname for the university students. Three weeks later, a few students paid a rancher $25 to rent a bison calf and a cowboy to handle her. The calf had to be managed by all 4 students plus the ranch hand... Read More

How to Plan A Graduation Party

March 3rd, 2016

As a senior, the thought of graduation brews a mixture of different emotions, from anxiety to excitement. We are halfway through spring semester and with that comes the need to organize and plan – and not just for midterms. Various spaces throughout Boulder have already been booked for graduation parties, which means those of us who haven’t thought much up party planning are behind the curve. Here is what you should do: – Decide if you want to have your graduation party at home or at a venue. – If you decide venue, make a list of the places that fit your wants and needs. –... Read More

Food For Thought (Literally)

December 3rd, 2015

The best foods for your brain during finals — It seems that studying makes us hungry – that is, hungrier than usual. Boulder is full of delicious restaurants, but which ones are best for a studying student? Heres the DL: 1) Yellow Belly – Not too expensive, and you can get a little bit of everything. Some carbs, some protein and some vegetables. A popular combination includes grilled chicken, green beans and potatoes. $5-$8 2) Chipotle – The benefits of chipotle are obvious; you can get a lot of everything, in which every ingredient is non-GMO, no antibiotic and local. Chipotle... Read More

Football is here! This is Richard, and he is a fulltime student. He spent the day tailgating in the park, throwing around the old pig skin and enjoying a refreshing beverage. How do you celebrate college football on Saturday?  Read More

How To Stay Safe This Halloweekend

October 29th, 2015

Safety first, Buffs! 1.Always have a buddy. Never leave a party alone or let your friends leave without you. If you want to stay and others want to leave, make sure you have at least one friend with you. Halloween means parties on top of parties – lots going on. It’s easy to get lost, so having a buddy is a must. 2.Don’t take any vitamins. The Hill will be explosive with parties, parties and more parties this weekend. Resist the urge to take things that people give you (other than wrapped candy, that is) because you never truly know a strangers intentions. 3.If you can’t... Read More

Pleading the Fifth

September 20th, 2015

Often, the significance of an event isn’t clear until after it’s passed. Everyone can recall an example in his or her own life. Sports, of course, are no exception. And since September is in full swing, that means football, which brings to mind a particularly odd example. It’s October 6, 1990. The CU Buffs had a record of three wins, one loss, and one tie; their opponent, the University of Missouri Tigers, had a record of two wins and two losses. Nearly 47,000 fans packed Faurot Field in Columbia, Missouri to watch the rivals battle it out. Both teams played hard, and Missouri lead 31-27... Read More

Fall Party Inspiration

August 14th, 2015

Party like it’s 1989 – or 2015. The idea is to explore party themes past the typical ugly sweater and commit to throwing an out-of-this-world soirée. My inspiration behind the idea for this blog were two things: One, my roommates and my idea of throwing an all out, combined birthday party for all three of us. This idea quickly escalated into a birthday/sexy santa christmas party – and two, the W Magazine photoshoot that featured a cast of VIP party animals, including Miley Cyrus, Emily Ratajkowski and Stella Maxwell. Being a college student, I’ve dreamed of hosting... Read More

CU is Saying, “We Want You to Be A Cultured Buff.”

January 30th, 2015

The University of Colorado Boulder, being an international university, enrolls students from across the globe including South Africa, Kuwait, and Australia. Walking from one class to another, it’s commonplace to hear fellow students conversing in different languages. All of this diversity has contributed to CU’s recognition of having a culturally diverse campus. What American students may not be aware of, however, are the opportunities to become a part of a completely different culture themselves. CU currently sponsors over 300 study abroad programs in over 65 countries. My three roommates... Read More

Faces of Boulder: Homecoming Weekend

October 26th, 2014

CU Boulder’s 100th Homecoming game brought Boulder back to its roots and was a day to remember for both CU students, Alumni, and Boulder residents. Everyone in Boulder was reminded this weekend of why Boulder is such a great place to live in through the beautiful 80 degree weather and the great moments that made up this years homecoming weekend. The following images come from Travis Bildahl and Joseph Wirth as they went from party to party on the hill area of Boulder this weekend. Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoyed game day!                         Hope... 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

CU Cross Country Races to the Top

November 5th, 2013

Colorado Cross Country has done it again. On Saturday, November 2nd, the Buffaloes hosted the Pac-12 Cross Country Championships for the first time since 2002 and represented their home turf justly by coming out swinging (or sprinting, rather). The weather was just right for running on Saturday, with cool temperatures and very little wind as thousands of fans poured onto Coal Creek Golf Course in Louisville to cheer on the racers. Among the audience were many of the CU alumni who contributed in the past to establish Colorado as one of the premier running programs in the nation. Olympians, NCAA... Read More
