6 Things That Make CU Alumni Nostalgic

September 15th, 2022

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.

If you ask around, a lot of students don’t even have tickets to the actual game... Read More

FLASHBACK – An Evolving Reputation: Party Culture at CU Boulder

August 17th, 2022

Perusing social media this weekend, I couldn’t help but notice an article among fellow University of Colorado students. University Primetime came out with its annual list of the nation’s top 100 party schools. CU Boulder made number 16. While university officials would be quick to point out that it’s quite a drop from its number one spot on Playboy’s 2011 list, the notoriety still stands. Thanks in part to the 420 rallies of yore, CU’s party school reputation is one that often far precedes it. Thinking back to the summer before my freshman year, I remember being vaguely terrified by... Read More

The Buffs slaughtered Nebraska this past weekend in a 34-31 overtime comeback victory.

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

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
