Students encouraged to arrive early for Saturday's Sacramento State game

Students attending the first home football game Saturday against Sacramento State at 1 p.m. are encouraged to get to Folsom Field early and enjoy all the gameday festivities.
A few of the pregame highlights include a visit to Ralphie’s Corral, located just south of Benson Earth Sciences, where Ralphie herself arrives at 10:15 a.m. and will be available for photo opportunities. Or stop by to grab a glance of her until about 30 minutes before kickoff. 

Bear visits campus, prompts reminder about bear safety

An adult bear visited campus Thursday morning in the Grandview neighborhood. CU Police, Boulder Police, Boulder open space rangers and the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife responded to the scene. Luckily, the bear wandered away from campus some time Thursday night.

After roaming around the area for a while, the bear settled next to a tree for approximately 30 minutes. It then scaled the tree shortly after noon and rested on a branch about 35 feet up, and remained there until some time Thursday night when it decided to come down and leave the area.
