Your student government: electing new reps

By Lora Roberts, CUSG director of communication

The time has come to start the process of electing new student representatives for the University of Colorado’s Student Government, or CUSG.

CUSG is a tremendous force on our campus, and has control and power in multiple areas of campus, including deciding where student fees are allocated. There are two elections each year, one in the fall and one in the spring, however the spring election is often larger because more positions are available.

CU Police launch crime reporting website

The University of Colorado Boulder Police Department is debuting a new time-saving crime reporting option for the public. Bike thefts, criminal mischief and other crimes that are not in progress can be reported at the UCPD website. The new site is not for reporting “crimes in progress” or other emergencies.

The site will allow people to report the crime and incident types listed below.

Capturing your creativity

Being a student can often feel more overwhelming and stressful than intellectually stimulating. Taking time to refocus your attention on something different, fun and engaging can help prevent feeling burned-out and build problem solving skills. Read more about expanding your creativity in February’s issue of CU-Boulder Student health 101.

No 'fat talk'

By Maria B. San Andres, student coordinator at Community Health

Have you ever caught yourself comparing your body to someone else’s? How about thinking that a specific part of your body doesn’t fit society’s beauty standards? I sure have, more than once.
