This week, being the last week of real class, there were lots of activities happening on campus. CU likes to give students options of things to do in between their studying and final projects as a way to destress.

Starting on Tuesday, for those who love poker, there was a Texas Hold‘Em tournament. It was open to everyone and there were some great prizes to be won. On Wednesday, there were arts and crafts, games and a magic show held in the UMC. It was advertised as “Fun before finals” for a good reason.  On Thursday, there was a Grad Bash, which I actually went to, and it was oodles of fun. There was a DJ, free drinks and food and it was probably one of the last times I would see certain people, which was bitter sweet. Thursday night, there was an early 2000’s dance party put on by the Fox Theater. It was free for ladies and $5 for guys 21 and over. I can’t tell you how much fun it was dancing to songs that I grew up listening to, especially early Britney Spears songs.

Something to look forward to on Monday the 8th is late night breakfast held at the UMC from 10pm-11pm. What a perfect way to take a break from studying by filling a plate full of delicious breakfast food! I hope everyone enjoyed their last week of class, and good luck with finals!

Lily is a senior at the University of Colorado at Boulder and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies along with a certificate in Business. She is originally from Scarborough, Maine, but decided to venture to Colorado for it's beauty and to get back in touch with her birth place which is Boulder. She is a Film Studies major because she is very interested in the behind the scenes of what goes into making a film. Not only that, but her favourite hobby in the world is to watch movies. She recently went abroad to Sydney, Australia to get a taste of a different culture. While being there, she learned to not take life too seriously, and to slow things down. The Australian lifestyle can really teach a person how to be chill. You can find Lily at the movies, hanging on Pearl Street having a beer with friends, or at the breathtaking lookout of Flagstaff enjoying the view.
