Mary Rippon Theatre Has Long Shakespearean History
George F. Reynolds, an Elizabethan theatre scholar who administered CU-Boulder's theatre program, helped develop plans for the Mary Rippon Theatre in 1936. The theater was completed in 1939, but no plays were staged there until 1944 when Shakespeare teacher and bibliographer James Sandoe was asked to direct a play for the coming summer. Because the University Theatre facility was occupied by the Department of the Navy due to the war effort, Sandoe initiated the Mary Rippon Theatre with a production of Romeo and Juliet.

The CU Goats?
If you think you've seen goats around campus, you're right! Facilities Management uses goats to control vegetation at Research Park and South Campus. The university contracts with a local herder for use of the goats in the late spring and fall and the herd grazes for up to a month. The goats keep growth under control in hard to reach areas and over time help cut back the growth of noxious weeds.
