It’s graduation time for colleges and universities around the country and for the 5,927 CU-Boulder graduates likely to hit the job market there’s good news. That’s because the job market is healthy and strong across the board, says Jon Schlesinger from CU-Boulder’s Office of Career Services.

Everybody knows about sexual assault, but how do we talk about it? And how do we move from awareness to action? The CU Dialogues Program recently facilitated a series of two dialogues with a group of 23 Residential Academic Program students in Farrand Hall. The series, entitled "'It’s On Us'-What Does 'It' Mean?" provided students with an opportunity to dig into the issue of sexual assault.

When you’re a master’s candidate, in your final semester, you don’t have a lot of time for yourself. Your days are spent writing, researching, neglecting to sleep. And when you’re working toward your master’s in music, a good chunk of your day is spent practicing.
That said, sometimes an opportunity presents itself that’s so good—an opportunity that will demand weeks of your precious time—that turning it down isn’t an option.
