A 'paws' in studying for finals at CU-Boulder

Dec. 7, 2015

In late November and early December, CU-Boulder University Libraries and Colorado Law gave students a unique way to de-stress before finals: Pet a therapy dog. Bark Buddies and Paws to Refresh provided registered therapy dogs to spend time with students in six of the university’s libraries.

From the Dean of Students: Take care of yourself and look out for each other

Dec. 2, 2015

As the semester winds down and we look forward to Winter Commencement, it is a good time to reflect on what has been a wild semester here at CU-Boulder. From everyday stresses to global events arriving on our doorstep, we know that many people in our community have been impacted by crisis and trauma. Please take care of yourself in this push to the end of the semester and finals – get some sleep, eat well, exercise and drink plenty of water – and, if you need additional support, please contact one of our many campus resources to get the help you need.
