We are NOT just IN the world, we are PART OF it.

Last weekend, the staff of the Environmental Centre at CU Boulder went on a retreat in the mountains of Nederland. The CU Mountain Research Station (MRS) played host to our retreat.

Mountain Magic

Monday, September 26, 2011

 

With a very busy week ahead of me, I felt the need to get away for some good old R&R this weekend. My friend invited a bunch of our friends from our floor in the dorms (way back from Freshman year) up to her grandparent’s cabin in Grand Lake, Colorado.

Midterm Madness

Monday, September 26, 2011

There always comes a week or two in the semester where mid terms hit you like a frieght train. A tsunami of study guides, study groups, and general studying washes over you. Unlike finals, where everyone is suffering, midterm madness selects a few students at a time to overwhelm before taking the next few prey. And, this week I'm in the thick of it.

Fall Semester... how I love thee...

Thursday, September 22, 2011

*Note: there is slight sarcasm in my blog post title. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with fall semester.

Take Back the Tap

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

It's never too early to start sourcing for an internship.

Internships gradually expose you to the working world and at the same time, they reveal your preferences within your major(s). If you are considering graduate school, internships help narrow your interests towards your graduate degree.

Last semester, I interned with CoPIRG, woking on the Take Back the Tap project.

CU Boulder is a hub of internships, research opportunities and academically relevant projects.

My internship experience added to my academic and social experiences.

Rocky Mountain "showdown"

Monday, September 19, 2011

Rockies in the Rain

This past weekend marked one of the biggest events for CU students for the year: the CU vs CSU game. A rivalry with deep roots, the Rocky Mountain Showdown is held every year at the Bronco's stadium in Denver. The CU-CSU game draws students, alumni, and parents alike to root for their team, hopping to attain bragging rights for the rest of the year.

Getting Involved...AWC Style

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

 

Greetings!

Tonight I attended the first Association for Women in Communications meeting of the school year. AWC is an organization on campus, mainly run in association with the journalism program, which focuses on learning about careers in the field of journalism and communication as well as strengthening our networking skills so we are better prepared to meet people when embarking on our career paths after college.

Football!

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Now that it's fall again, it signals the return of football season! Football season is one of the greatest times of year because not only are the Buffs playing, but the entire NFL (barring lockouts) is playing. Since I don't really have an NFL team, there's so many games to watch, and I don't have to worry about which team to hate! The college games are always fun to watch, but I really only watch the CU ones, which can sometimes lead to mild depression.
