This week was the Conference on World Affaris (CWA) here on CU's campus. This is one of my favorite, if not my absolute favorite, traditions that happens at CU and I thought I should dedicate a special blog post to this great event.
International Affairs | Political Science • Colorado Springs, Colorado
This week saw the Conference on World Affairs descend on Boulder. Featuring speakers from all over the world, the Conference places four speakers each on panels to discuss topics ranging from politics to astronomy to storytelling. The event takes place on the CU campus and features the largest non-athletic attendance in Boulder per year, with over 100,000 attendees over the course of the week.
I was perusing Twitter this morning and saw a tweet about how our CU email system has transitioned into Google. Until now, we have been on a system called "CU Link," which really just wasn't great. The interface was outdated, and each account was alloted a meager 200 MB. It was difficult to load contact information, and there was no way to remain signed in, so you were always logging back into your email.
I was really hoping that this storm was a belated April Fools joke...but apparently not! I can't believe that the weather turned to this so quickly! Just another reason why I love Boulder, it always keeps you on your toes! I'm really glad I didn't send my winter stuff home last week like I was supposed to. I guess procrastination pays off sometimes!
It's that time of year again! Time to register for next semester's classes! This process can be pretty stressful for some people and for others, it's a breeze. Here are some tips on a smooth registration.
Wow, what an amazing spring break! It was a week of a lot of firsts for me, which was really cool. While I have traveled around foreign countries quite a bit, I have never really been around the US at all, so driving through New Mexico and Arizona was quite a sight! Very open...lots of bushes...lots of mesas. It was also my first road trip, and the first time I've ever seen a cactus. One the way back up to Colorado from Tuscon we drove through a National Forrest and it was literally a forrest of suaro cacti. Insane!
Hate studying in the main Norlin library? Yeah, me too. So, I've compiled a list of relatively unknown places on campus where I've studied at one point or the other.
