Silver Linings

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Silver linings have been playing a big part in my life recently, especially regarding this weather. While I do think that it is absolutely crazy that we're getting this much snow in April, my silver lining is that I get to see the Flatirons covered in snow one last time before moving back east, which is absolutely an amazingly beautiful sight. Aside from the weather, things have also been pretty crazy, especially seeing that finals and graduation are less than three weeks away!

New Restaurants and Weird Weather

Monday, April 15, 2013

I have realized my blog has become very food centered this semester as I've explored the variety of restaurants scattered throughout Boulder. Boulder was voted one of the "Foodiest" cities in the US recently, so naturally there are lots of places to try!

I went to The Cup on Pearl to meet with a friend for coffee last Tuesday on my day off. The Cup is a cute, local coffee shop that has a unique and wide variety of coffee options, including espresso and ice cream in the same cup - something I will have to try this summer!

April (snow) Showers Bring May Flowers

Monday, April 15, 2013

 

Ahhh Springtime! Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and the sun is shining….well, in some places.  Welcome to springtime in the Rockies--- where the months are filled with more snow than some places get during the winter.

Hello!

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.

Conference on World Affairs

Friday, April 12, 2013

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.

Making the Switch to Gmail

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Hey all,

 

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 The interface was outdated, and each account was alloted a meager 200 MB.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.

Belated April Fools?

Thursday, April 11, 2013

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.

Firsts, Lasts, and Tears

Sunday, April 7, 2013

If you’ve read any of my other posts, you probably know at least two things about me.

1) I love CU
2) I love Student Ambassadors/being a Student Ambassador
