AWARDS AND KUDOS
University recognized for American Cancer Society Support
The University of Colorado at Boulder received a plaque on June 24 in recognition of its long-standing support of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. CU-Boulder has hosted the overnight fundraising relay and celebration of cancer survivors for the past five years. The Athletic Department and the Office of Community Relations sponsor the event, which is held on Potts Field on East Campus and raised more than $90,000 this year.
Deep Impact Broadcast at Fiske a Striking Success
On July 3, Fiske Planetarium and Sommers-Bausch Observatory hosted 800 viewers who watched as a probe from NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft slammed into a comet millions of miles from Earth. The planetarium also held a "Deep Impact Crash Party" on July 4 for more than 100 community members that included activities for children and replays of the awesome event. Both events were free and open to the public.
DID YOU KNOW?
Is your computer feeling a little vulnerable?
Antivirus software is one of the most important tools for safe-guarding your computer, vital information and personal data from the daily onslaught of viruses and worms. Without antivirus protection, your computer may be left defenseless against malicious attacks. CUantivirus, eTrust antivirus software from Computer Associates, is available from ITS at no cost to all CU-Boulder faculty, staff and students. To find out more about CUantivirus, safe email practices and more, please visit IT Security Information.
New Libraries Fine Structure
Most of the books you check out from the University Libraries won't be subject to overdue fines. Fines will only be assessed on items requested by another borrower, course reserve material and some special collections. Additionally, most items will not be considered "lost" until they are overdue for 90 days. Patrons are encouraged to renew items checked out before July 1 in order to be entered into the new system. For full details of the new fine structure please visit University Libraries.
A Foundation of Innovation
The College of Engineering and Applied Science was established in 1893 with only two students. In fall 2004 2,736 undergraduates and 1,158 graduate students were enrolled in the school.
