Looking Back: CU’s Controversial Buffalo Pool is Officially Open

January 30th, 2024

As a student, I was witness to the Buffalo Pool’s construction over the course of my most recent semester. I stood on the other side of the surrounding chain link fence, hoping that I would one day get to jump into this mystical animal-shaped pool, which was nothing but a mess of dirt and construction equipment when I first saw it. Well, that day has come, and I have finally gotten to see the finalized pool. It’s pretty freakin’ neat. The pool looks fantastic and the many months of construction have clearly paid off. However, it’s no secret that this pool has been the spark... Read More

The Boroughs of Boulder

October 1st, 2023

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

Jack and his friends were enjoying a nice day outside. They’re all students at CU and told me that they like to get away from campus sometimes. Every now and then it’s good to change your surroundings and take a breath of fresh air. Something about the wilderness in Colorado makes it easy to refresh. Jack and his friends are thankful to be so close to landscapes as beautiful as the one pictured. Boulder is a great place for people to get outside and take advantage of the nice weather. This day in particular was celebrated with food and music in a beautiful setting.  Read More

Faces of Boulder ~ Pic of the Day

February 6th, 2023

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

How to Legally Slackline in Boulder

With warmer weather gracing us after a deeply cold winter we are sure Boulder residents are ready to get outside. Let’s take a look at a relatively new sport Boulderites are practicing, and where you can do it in Boulder. Slacklining is a sport invented at Camp 4 in Yosemite back in the 1980s. It is similar to tightrope walking but, instead of a rope, the person balances on a piece of flat, tubular webbing. In warmer weather it is a fairly common site at local Boulder parks and on the University campus. Usually a group of people will be gathered around a rope, which is suspended between two... Read More
