AWARDS AND KUDOS
Buffalo Bicycle Classic Continues to Grow
An estimated 2,200 cyclists participated in the Sept. 10 Buffalo Bicycle Classic, raising about $200,000 for Arts and Sciences scholarships. The Classic has steadily grown over the past three years, and has generated a total of $300,000 for student scholarships. The funds are divided into $2,000 awards to Colorado residents with 3.0 grade-point averages and financial need. For more information on the Buffalo Bike Classic visit the web site.

$20,000 Donated for New Ski Team Vans
The ski team has three new vans, thanks to $20,000 raised at last year's Ski Ball. Athletic Director Mike Bohn conducted an auction at the ball that raised the funds needed to lease the vans with an option to buy. The new vans are roomy enough to comfortably seat 10 students plus their gear, and are suited to strenuous winter driving conditions. They made their maiden voyage this summer to Mount Hood in Oregon.
Arts and Culture Week Enjoys Record Attendance
This year's Arts and Culture Week was a resounding success, with record turnouts to most events. Organized by the Arts and Culture Roundtable, the many and varied programs across campus gained the attention of students, faculty, staff and community members. Jim Hakala, assistant director of the Museum of Natural history first suggested the event be more firmly coalesced into a group effort, and the results have been remarkable for all participants.
