CU-Boulder student life: Colorado Crew

At 5:45 a.m., the sun hasn’t made its climb over the horizon yet. In the dark, early-morning chill, the men’s and women’s rowing teams push off from shore at the Boulder Reservoir for practice.

Community Notes

Rec Center Workout

The CU Recreation Center will offer free admission to all faculty/staff as well as their families and friends during winter break. Free days are Dec. 22 - Jan. 6. Plenty of time to get some needed relaxation and exercise! 

We will be closed Dec, 24, 25 and 31 as well as Jan. 1, 2 and 3. Some of these days are holidays. Jan 2 and 3 we will be relocating the weight and systems rooms upstairs to the General Gym! Come check out the new spaces on Jan. 4.

Have a great Holiday!

Google cycle

CU-Boulder is going Google

For students, Google Apps for Education will mean all the messaging and calendaring functionality of Google (Gmail, Calendar, Contacts) and the collaborative apps (Drive [docs], Sites, Talk [chat] and much more) will soon be connected to your CU-Boulder IdentiKey account. Faculty and staff will also get in on the collaborative features of Google, excluding Gmail. This will allow faculty and staff to collaborate with other Google users across the same collaborative apps students get—Drive, Sites, Chat, Groups and more.
