Fall is hands-down my favorite time of the year. There are so many enjoyable aspects and fun activities to do!

I recently went on a peak-to-peak drive in the mountains to see the gorgeous colors of the aspen trees. Local farms and businesses are open to the public for various activities, including pumpkin patches, hayrides and corn mazes. The Boulder Farmers Market near Pearl Street is another great way to celebrate fall. There are a few more Saturdays left to bundle up against the chilly weather and visit the farmers market for seasonal food and beverages, including my absolute favorite—warm apple cider.
The fall season also means it’s Homecoming at CU Boulder, and I’m looking forward to welcoming our alumni back to campus this week. Homecoming is a great opportunity to go outside your comfort zone and meet new people; I hope you’re able to expand your Buff network and meet alumni who are working in industries you might be interested in joining one day.
As Halloween weekend is also approaching, I encourage everyone to celebrate responsibly and have fun. As you do so, please be mindful and respectful.
Ken Koch, our CU Boulder police chief, has asked me to share some tips with you to ensure the health and safety of yourself and others.
And remember, you're a Buff wherever you are! Be aware. Be considerate. Be responsible.
