Faces of Boulder ~ Pic of the Day!

August 6th, 2023

A: “We once once made a deal; I was going to join cross country if she would join the high school musical.” E: “I did it for a little while…” A: “…But then she quit. My friends and I all felt betrayed! hahaha.” E: “Yea and now we mostly hang out making fun of each other and doing homework.” What are you both studying? E: “I’m studying bio-engineering. I know a few disabled people in my life… and they made me want to improve the lives of anyone who is disabled. It’s easy to find a path in bio-engineering that... Read More

It is that time in the semester when stress spreads like a rampant plague through the ranks of the students at universities. We are right about halfway through the semester, and every week my workload seems to grow heavier and heavier. When I was a freshman in my first semester at college, I had no idea how to cope with this stress. I wish I’d known about some of the options available for students to reduce this anxiety. What I have come to learn is that there are a wide variety of resources available for college students, many of which are quite reasonably priced. Yoga I know how this must... Read More

Three Places to Visit on the CU Boulder Campus

January 10th, 2022
Places to Visit on the CU Boulder Campus

It would be nearly impossible to deny the immense size of CU Boulder. The university, which boasts a student population of just over 33,000, can be overwhelming for a new student. It will inevitably take a new student a few days to become truly acquainted with the campus. Yet the daunting nature of CU Boulder is not limited to new students alone. Becoming disorientated with the campus is something that even experienced students can face. As someone who is entering her second year at the campus, there are places and buildings on the campus that even I have not set foot in. For this upcoming fall... Read More

My experience as an English major at CU Boulder has undoubtedly been a mixed bag. Every week my opinion varies when it comes to college. Some days I rejoice in my existence as a university student, other days I feel as though I am counting down the days until I am finally released from the bonds of school. My journey to attending CU Boulder has been quite the process, as I bounced around between a couple of schools before finally settling upon CU. When I first entered college, I was a psychology major in Kansas City at UMKC (the University of Missouri at Kansas City). I quickly became dissatisfied... Read More

How I Eat Healthy On A Student’s Budget

December 15th, 2021

Boulder is a great place to explore cuisine. We have the Kitchen on Pearl Street, a restaurant who values its locally grown, fresh and organic ingredients; The farmers market on Wednesdays and Saturdays; Fate Brewery whom changes their menu based on seasonal produce, you get the picture. This city is health epitomized. However, being a student and being healthy don’t seem to go hand in hand. I know that if I could eat at the Kitchen everyday I absolutely would, but who has that kind of money to spend? Definitely not working, starving, college students. Here are my secrets to eating healthy... Read More

While the holidays are an enjoyable time for many, the same cannot necessarily be said for students. This time of year, for many a student, is filled to the brim with the stress of finals. However, as finals season comes to a close, there are a variety of ways for students to become immersed in the life at CU Boulder again. For those students who may be staying around the college after finals, there are a variety of activities to participate in. A favorite place of mine on campus is the Fiske Planetarium. Fiske is so fabulous that some people who have never been to the CU Boulder campus will come... Read More

Top 3 Coffee Shops in Boulder

February 5th, 2020

One of my favorite things to do is go to cute local coffee shops on occasion! I love the variety of coffee shops, each one having a different little pizazz and style; makes paying $5 for a coffee (kinda) worth it if it’s a cute shop with a good atmosphere. In Boulder, there is no shortage of great coffee shops, and here are a few of the best. 1. The Laughing Goat Ah, The Laughing Goat is a favorite of the Boulder coffee scene and it makes sense why. A nice location a few blocks off of the busy Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall, the Laughing Goat is a nice little oasis. They have a tiny cute patio... Read More

Help to Find Mikhal “Misha” Solok

April 10th, 2019

The community at CU Boulder has always prided itself on being connected and coming together in periods of trouble. In truth, I cannot think of a time more critical for the CU Boulder community to come together than for the case of Mikhal “Misha” Solok, who went missing in March and has not been heard of from his friend or family since then. Despite a number of tips which have been given to the police, none of the tips have led to authorities locating Solok. CU Boulder is a relatively large campus, with approximately 33,000 to 35,000 students attending from year to year. Being enrolled... Read More

4 Upcoming Activities at CU Boulder

March 6th, 2019

Spring break is looming on the horizon for CU Boulder. For the students who find themselves waiting in near desperation for the beginning portion of the semester to end and spring break to begin, my only true piece of advice would be to try and enjoy the time spent on the campus before we all find ourselves too busy with finals or too distracted by spring break to do so. A personal favorite way of doing this is by participating in the activities at the college, especially those activities that one might forget about during the busy semester. As such, I have compiled four events which a student... Read More
