Meet Colton!

December 15th, 2017

Meet Colton! Colton is a senior at CU Boulder studying digital media. He is one of the student athletes with the distinction to call themselves one of Ralphie’s Handlers.   Ralphie, for those of you who are unfamiliar, is the CU Boulder mascot who usually makes appearances running out onto Folsom Field ahead of the CU Boulder football team during home games. The group of student athletes that run with Ralphie and guide her horseshoe-shaped pattern through Folsom field are known as Ralphie Handler’s and Colton has been with the team since his freshman year! Growing up in Colorado, Colton... 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

6 Things That Make CU Alumni Nostalgic

September 25th, 2016

It’s true, college can be the best time of your life. You’re living in the middle of a cultural hub and surrounded by people who know how to have a good time and hate CSU. When it’s all over, here are the things that alumni miss the most: Tailgating. Among the things that CU is good at, winning football games isn’t necessarily up there, but tailgating certainly is. Football games are an all-day event so by 8:30am on Saturday morning, the Hill is popping with music, mimosas, and people getting ready to grill. If you ask around, a lot of students don’t even have tickets to the actual game... Read More

6 Weird and Unique Boulder Laws

January 20th, 2016

When oddly specific things become public problems, local legislation steps in to help. Today we will look at a few odds and ends Boulder city laws had to smooth out over the years. Hopefully we will boost today’s water cooler conversations. Nobody Owns Fifi Dogs in Boulder do not have “owners” according to any public ordinances. You can only be the “guardian” of a dog. This law requiring all public signage to call dog owners “guardians” is the result of animal rights activist calling for reform in the rhetoric surrounding pet relationships. It’s... Read More

Spectacular Mars Meteor Shower; CU Aerospace Made Big Contribution

November 13th, 2014

  In case you students are too busy with your own studies to stay up to date with our school’s aerospace engineering department, tune into this article. We all know about Mars but scientists at CU Boulder are trying to know more. So, about a year ago we launched a space shuttle that just recently slid into Mars’ orbit. A mere 442 million mile one-way trip.   The reason I like to bring things like this up is because most students don’t realize how awesome of a research university we are, in all categories. For example, we’re the number-one funded public university in the nation... Read More

Black Friday: How to Prepare as a College Student

November 5th, 2014

  A good friend of mine once said, that he loves the smell of fall, the taste of winter, and the sound of spring. Is this a famous quote yet?!! Anyways, besides the fact that fall smells especially delightful as far as seasons go, it also means to get ready to spend a lot of money   You see, every year Black Friday takes on a new role. A bigger and badder role. I’ve never been considered a trust fund baby, I’ve paid for most of what I own, so anytime I’m buying gifts for others or myself I find the rock bottom deals. It’s an odd concept, but some people feel better paying full... Read More

Halloween: Have Fun but Stay Safe!

October 29th, 2014
Halloween in Boulder Colorado

  It’s finally here students, the weekend that is arguably the most dynamic out of the entire school year! Time to pretend you’re someone you desperately want to be or a celeb who you’d love to bash on. I was a “beaten up biebs” last year. I despise Bieber and thought it would be funny, unfortunately nobody understood. So, my first piece of advice is don’t overthink the costume idea and don’t offend diehard fans, they’re passionate!!!   My second piece of advice, which should be the first considering how important it is, BE SAFE. We all know how rowdy Boulder gets... Read More

Homecoming 2014: Get Ready to Get Rowdy!

October 23rd, 2014

  To those who read my post from last week, I apologize if this article comes across as reminiscent, but hey, it’s the 100 year homecoming anniversary, a date to be remembered!!! Yes, a date worthy of three consecutive exclamation points. I already talked about the events I find most worth checking out, but I’d like to emphasize on two of them.   The first event, taking place on Friday (tomorrow), is the Pearl Street Stampede. The main reason I recommend going to this event is it’s aimed to get everyone stoked on our football team and the hope they will pull their “stuff” together... Read More

Back to Boulder Homecoming Weekend

October 15th, 2014

  So, homecoming weekend is almost upon us! I’d rather talk about it this week even though homecoming is next week so everyone is fully prepared for a good time. The cool fact about this year’s homecoming? We’re celebrating 100 years of homecoming.   The cool part about homecoming in general is alumni or current students can equally enjoy it. Since this is my final homecoming as an undergrad, I’ll try and shed some light on the schedule for Back to Boulder, and which events should be the best to check out. Here’s the list:   Alumni Awards Ceremony: Check this out for... Read More

Why you should go to CU Football Games, Even Though We’re Not Any Good

October 8th, 2014

  To be completely honest, our football team has played like dirt the past few, or more than few, years. This is in part because we joined the Pac-12 back in June of 2010. However, I’m here to tell you other students why all of that does not matter, and it starts with being fans!   We all hear that cliché saying from some famous athlete or celebrity saying “I couldn’t have done it without you guys, THE FANS”. Now, I’m usually the guy to shake his head, thinking all they want is more attention and applause. This time, I gotta be the guy to tell you that without us as loyal... 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
