Snow Snow Dump Dump Dump

Monday, March 4, 2013

Yeah, the first big snow of the year in Boulder came this past weekend. For those out of state students who have never seen snow you can always see their eyes light up with excitement and wonder. We received around 8 inches of snow this past weekend and I love it. Whether you like going outside and throwing snowballs at all of your passing friends or building snowmen. Snow can be the most exciting time of the year. On Sunday, I went to a local hill in Boulder, grabbed my sled, and spent three hours flying down the hill with my roommates and other friends.

No Frills Conference

Monday, March 4, 2013

This past weekend I had the opportunity to represent the University of Colorado, Boulder at the annual No Frills Conference for the Residence Hall Association (RHA). At the conference, we discussed how each schools RHA was doing and we could improve for the future. In addition to that, we also prepared for our National Conference, which will be at the University of Pittsburgh this May. Last year the University of Colorado, Boulder was the host of this National Conference and it was a blast having people from schools all across our nation.

RedemptChen

Sunday, March 3, 2013

After a brutal loss against, ranked fourth in the Nation, University of Arizona in Arizona earlier in January the Basketball Team was not the only people ready for some redemptChen. I arrived an hour before the game tipped off and the student section was already half full. Even though it was the day of love, there was no love given by our student section, which all the students decided to wear black shirts to intimidate Arizona with our blacked out student section. The game went a little back and forth but Tad Boyle kept his guys motivated to hold the lead until the last second.

A Starry Night

Thursday, February 7, 2013

I love living in one of most educated cities in the nation. Last night I had the distinct pleasure of attending a public lecture for my Astronomy Class, with the guest speaker Dr. Daniel Baker the director of LASP (The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics). His talk focused on how our magnetosphere interacts with space weather using his data from his two observation satellites he help design and sent into the Van Allen belt. I am not a Physics major but I do love space.
