Life at CU Boulder shifts gears after commencement but hardly goes dormant. The amphitheater rings with Elizabethan eloquence during the annual Shakespeare festival. Summer session students amble well-trod pathways. This year, for the second in a row, a Grateful Dead offshoot will electrify Folsom Field.
Still, come mid-May, a certain serenity settles over campus. Turtles queue along drifting logs on Varsity Lake. Frisbees arc above open lawns. The libraries close a little earlier.
The pair in this CU Heritage Center photograph, undated but thought to be of 1950s vintage, seem to be making the most of a pleasant day outside Norlin Library.
