Jobs at CU
Payroll and Benefit Services and CU-Boulder's Employment Services recently launched "Jobs at CU," an online applicant tracking and recruiting system. Starting Nov. 29, Jobs at CU streamlines the university's recruitment process to make it easier for applicants to locate and apply for positions. Department users will enter job posting related information that will be associated with position data fed nightly from the PeopleSoft Human Resource Management System. This allows for tracking and managing applicants who apply online. For more details, please visit the website.

Do you often wonder about proper pronunciations for some of our buildings? Here's a quick guide to a few of the most challenging ones: Gamow Tower - GAM off; Koenig Alumni Center - KOE nig, not kay nig; and Ramaley Biology Building - Rah MAY lee. The honor for most variations on pronunciation goes to the Sibell Wolle Fine Arts Building, named after Muriel Sibelle Wolle, who served 40 years as professor of fine arts and was nationally known for her sketches of mining camps and ghost towns throughout the West that appeared in several books. Her husband, Francis Wolle, was a professor of English and helped found the University Theatre; Muriel also designed sets for the plays presented there. After checking with several experts, we've selected "Sy (long i sound) bell Wally" as our pronunciation guide for Sibell Wolle. Interested in learning more about CU-Boulder's history and traditions?

Commonly Misidentified Campus Features
Sometimes the informal names for places around the campus become ingrained in our culture more than the official names. Did you know that Varsity Pond is officially Varsity Lake and Bridge? And the official name for Folsom Stadium is actually Folsom Field.
