Faces of Boulder Sophia

Meet Sophia! Sophia is an 8-year-old harpist and by far one of the youngest performers on the Pearl Street Mall.  Sophia’s been studying the harp with local music teacher Margot Krimmel after getting the harp as a Christmas present last winter.  Sophia’s father, Alexander told me he had a sense she would be musically inclined and after showing her a picture of a harp, her decision was made.  Make sure to drop a dollar in Sophia’s basket if you see her performing, she’s saving up for her new pedal harp!  Read More

Faces of Boulder – Joshua

June 10th, 2017

Joshua moved back to Boulder a year and a half ago after living in Ohio, California and South Carolina. He moved back because “this is the only place I’ve ever felt like I haven’t had to leave. I’ve been somewhere else and I feel like I am still waiting to come back to here.” Although Boulder calls Joshua back every time, his favorite place to live was Ohio because there were multiple seasons and “there was no grey line between rich or poor- you were either working class or rich.” Joshua says his favorite thing to do is people watch around Boulder, especially... Read More

6 Things You Realize As Soon As You Leave Boulder

September 29th, 2016

It’s a fantastic city, Boulder, but the longer you live here, the more accustomed you’ll become to mountains, sunshine, craft beer, and socially liberal ideas. You run the risk of forgetting that not every city is environmentally conscious and dog-friendly all the time. Here are some things to keep in mind if you leave town: Not everyone is ultra-fit. Boulder has consistently been ranked as one of the fittest cities in the country. It is a hotbed of marathoners, bikers, runners, hikers, skiers, snowboarders, unicyclers, hoola-hoopers, etc. As soon as you get out of town though, you’ll realize... 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 Things You Shouldn’t Forget in Boulder

September 4th, 2016

It’s a town full of adventurers, foodies, and oh-so-trendy college kids. You’ll want to be in the know and prepared for anything. Here’s what you shouldn’t forget when you’re in Boulder: Reusable Bags. These puppies can save your life. Plastic bags are the cancer of environmentally-friendly cities everywhere, so more and more places are passing legislation that imposes 5 or 10-cent fees for having to use plastic or paper bags at the check-out. Plus, if you forget your reusable bags when you’re checking out at Whole Foods or Sprouts or Trader Joe’s, people will... Read More

“I’m passionate about people. Like, being around people and making others excited and happy. That’s the best, you know? If I’m by myself, it’s awesome, but I think being around people elevates my energy and transforms me.” – Miles Mallory  Read More

Words for an Incoming Freshman

Attending the University of Colorado, Boulder is definitely one of the best decisions you could have made, so congratulations on passing your first test. Your choice is wise and sound. This is where you will spend your next four years … or five or six give or take a couple summer courses. The thing about college is that adults really love to ask you questions and give you vague, over-reaching advice about these next couple years. Truth is, of course it will be the best four years of your life. You are – for the first time – only accountable for yourself. There is no one there to tell you... Read More

“At the end of August, I’m moving to Pristina, Kosovo. I’ll be working as a high school social studies teacher at the American School of Kosova. Sometimes I have moments of extreme excitement for my upcoming adventures, then I have moments of nervousness, questioning, and anxiety. Like, how do you teach about the Holocaust and genocide to students who have witnessed a genocide? What challenges will I face? How will I adjust to life in Kosovo? I love my Colorado life, but I want to explore elsewhere, too, and learn other histories.” – Megan Lukens  Read More

“She’s moving to Indianapolis this weekend so I took her out for margs. I figured it’s the least I could do for her after having a friend that puts up with me. I really don’t know what I’m going to do without her here … maybe I’ll just move into her closet in Indiana.” – Giselle Rudnick (with Maddy Feeney at Taco Junky)  Read More

Tube to Work Day: a Friday Commute

July 20th, 2016

Last Friday, for the 9th year in a row, Boulderites from businesses all over town ditched their wheels, picked up their inner tubes, and hopped into Boulder Creek to ride the waves to work. Dressed in everything from a full suit and tie to tight flashy spandex and wacky wigs, tubers gathered along Boulder Creek all morning and plunged into cold water with high spirits and a big smile. It was a sunny day with rushing ice-cold creek water and over 500 people tubing to work … a quintessential Friday in Boulder, Colorado. Tube to Work Day has quickly established itself as a tradition in this town.... Read More

7 Things More Common in Boulder Than Anywhere Else

July 18th, 2016

Hula hoopers. Some may simply refer to themselves as “hoopers.” They’re everywhere, usually sporting some kind of flashy clothing, a flower headdress, and whipping a large hula hoop around their waist, their arms, and over their heads set to the tune of some EDM music (which stands for Electric Dance Music … another thing that is very common in Boulder). Anything “Buffalo” themed. Boulder is a college town, so the university is a source of some major pride in this city. CU’s mascot is the famous, 1,400-pounds of raging buffalo affectionately known as Ralphie. This means places all... Read More
