February 25th, 2024

Stress is inevitable. This is especially true for the 50% of the Boulder population who are college students dealing with exams, assignments, deadlines, and – this week – midterms. While some stress can be beneficial and motivating, too much can have negative impacts on physical and mental health. With mid-terms upon us, it can be tempting to compromise physical and mental health practices in exchange for some extra time in the library. However, research finds that students who take the time for self-care perform better on examinations, overall course grades, and physical and mental... Read More

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

Timeless Pieces of Boulder’s Architectural History

January 22nd, 2024

With the holidays over, we figured we should refresh our minds with something different today. Boulder has a very interesting architectural history, especially the university campus. We will touch on some defining Boulder architectural projects which you have probably seen around town. Next time you’re out and about, maybe you’ll encounter some of these oh-so-Boulder building projects. The University Campus Of course we cannot skim Boulder’s architectural past without bringing up the University of Colorado campus. It began with the all-brick Old Main and soon grew into several... Read More

6 Things That Make CU Alumni Nostalgic

November 11th, 2023

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... Read More

Take a Trip to Gurkhas On the Hill

March 3rd, 2022

Despite the fact that I have been a student at CU Boulder for a couple of years now, I have always had an aversion to the Hill. My dislike for the Hill is due to a number of reasons, and I feel that those reasons are somewhat reasonable. I have had a few bad experiences while in that area, and those experiences have absolutely turned me off of being around the Hill. However, I am beginning to understand that many of my unfortunate incidences are perhaps more isolated than I had previously believed. Despite this, I would also caution everyone against going to the Hill after dark and would tell them... Read More

Hidden Gems in Boulder: Tsing Tao Restaurant

January 18th, 2022

Boulder has a wide variety of hidden gems throughout the city sprinkled within corners which might be difficult to discover unless one has been living in Boulder for some time. As a Missouri native who only moved to Boulder a couple of years ago, it seems as though I am constantly discovering fabulous places in the city to enjoy. As a student, perhaps the most pressing issue on my mind is how to save money while still living my life as a Boulder citizen. I am always on the hunt for wonderful places in Boulder while staying within my budget. Another consideration I must make for myself when I go... Read More

Does College Foster Immaturity?

January 14th, 2022

There’s more reasons for wanting to attend college than to get a degree. Many students admit that one up side to a college life in the 4 year limbo between true responsibility and childhood. Although we are, in a way, securing our futures, it’s hard to actually call ourselves “adults”. In fact, a popular quote of our generation is “Don’t make me adult today.” But why would we? Even with an internship or a job in conjunction to a full class load students enjoy a freedom void of true responsibility. Is this the truth? Is college an extension of high school,... Read More

The Reality of Alcohol Use in College Students

November 6th, 2020

Of the many stigmatized issues that young people face, a significant one is the use and abuse of substances; which includes alcohol and other recreational drugs. As a full-time college student myself, I see how these issues plague my peers. I also see how these problems are not properly addressed in a university setting. As I watch my friends consistently struggle with the abuse of substances, I find myself becoming more and more frustrated. Many of my fellow students, a significant number of whom are not even twenty-one yet, have become dependent on alcohol. Nevertheless, we pretend as though... 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

View the International Film Series at CU Boulder

March 27th, 2019

A favorite event of mine which takes place at CU Boulder is the International Film Series, an event which features a widely diverse schedule. One of the most significant mistakes that one can make is to ignore the IFS while involved at the campus. It is vital that the International Film Series at CU Boulder is supported. It indeed is one of those programs that thrives off of student involvement; as such, keeping up to date on the schedule and what is being shown is very important. Here are some shows which are coming up at IFS that I believe one should mark on their calendar. The Man Who Fell to... Read More
