Social scientists and health researchers from across Colorado and neighboring states will soon have abundant U.S. Census and other federal statistical data available to them in a secure setting on our campus.

The National Science Foundation this month awarded $300,000 over three years to CU-Boulder to create the Rocky Mountain Research Data Center, which will be housed in the Institute of Behavioral Science.

Honeybees use their wings to cool down their hives when temperatures rise, but new research shows that this intriguing behavior may be linked to both the rate of heating and the size of a honeybee group.

“Larger groups of bees seem to be better than individuals or small groups at cuing in on how quickly an environment is changing,” said Chelsea Cook, a doctoral researcher in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and lead author of the study.

The research may have implications on how self-organization and decentralized information gathering can influence biological and artificial environments alike.

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Christina Gonzales has named Akirah J. Bradley as the associate vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students effective Aug. 1. Bradley is currently the assistant dean of students at the University of California, Berkeley.

“The dean of student’s role oversees so many critical aspects of the student experience,” said Gonzales. “Akirah is a dynamic administrator and is uniquely qualified given her extensive experience in various areas of higher education, including student development, equity and inclusion, policy implementation, student and staff engagement, crisis management, violence prevention and student retention efforts.”

The seven undergraduate students in Professor Jeffrey Zax’s Applied Economic Analysis and Public Policy class didn’t stop at analyzing the economic impact of bills considered during the recently concluded legislative session. They even showed up to testify.

"Rep. (Dianne) Primavera cited my analysis of HB16-1372 when she was advocating for the bill," said Devin Bazata, an economics major from Thornton, Colorado. "Seeing my work being used in a situation like that was something I never guessed would happen."

Imagine if music class were a video game. Learning scales would earn students points. Mastering a particularly difficult piece would be the equivalent of the big-bad “boss” they’d have to defeat to move on to the next level. And most importantly—they’d be having the time of their lives learning music.

That’s the idea that guides Ashley Brandin (MMus'13) in her music classroom at Platt Middle School in Boulder every day.

“Games are a great environment because they promote experimentation, learning from your mistakes and choosing your own path,” said Brandin.

Our Zero Waste Team is using creative solutions to decrease campus waste going to landfills, while increasing recycling and composting and reducing paper use. In the last four years, campus has seen a 33 percent reduction in print and copy paper. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average American generates four-and-a-half pounds of waste per day. As a campus we average a little more than a half a pound per-day-per-person.

“It is easy to be passionate about the environment at CU and in Boulder,” said Curt Huetson, director of facilities planning, operations and project management for Housing & Dining Services. “But, most folks these days have a real sense that we can all do our part for a sustainable future.”

After 42 years of service, including stints as professor, department chair, researcher and recently as vice provost and associate vice chancellor for undergraduate education, Michael Grant will retire from the university this spring. 

One constant through all his years with CU-Boulder has been his love of teaching and the classroom. A first-generation college graduate - no one in his family on either side had even started college at the time he completed his degrees - Grant recognized early the significance of teachers in students' lives. And it's something he's been passionate about his whole career.

I think this school is a terrible, terrible place. Bonnie, my friend, went to this school, and absolutely HATED it, all she did was call me day and night complaining, "WAHHHH" she'd say "I hate this school!"

I spent eight years after my undergraduate degree being an elementary art teacher and hating it, but slowly working on my paintings so I could apply to graduate school. During my interview for CU, I was asked questions about my paintings I had never heard before, questions I couldn’t answer. As hard as it was having the rug pulled out beneath me, the interview felt strangely cathartic, I knew CU was where I wanted to study so I could one day answer those questions I couldn’t at my interview. I believed graduate school would help me find a deeper understanding of the world, my own art and a place that would give me the skills to start my art career. I have no idea if going to graduate school was a good idea. Graduate school has been the most humbling experience of my life. It didn’t turn out the way I thought it would. Now that I’m about to graduate, I feel I finally have the skills to apply to graduate school. After a particularly bad day at school I was reminded of the movie Gaslight, about a woman whose husband makes her believe she was crazy when she saw a gaslight becoming dim. When people asked me what graduate school was like, I would say, “Gas Lighting”. I often felt as though I was going crazy but there is something crazy about making art. I truly believe humans need other humans to grow and those who resist change get stuck. It seems the students that embrace humility get the most out of their time at school or perhaps that’s just what I want to believe. I forget all too often to do what makes me happy and make art that was important to me. When asked what I learned in graduate school I say “I learned where the bar is in the art world”. Meaning what makes art spectacular enough to be special. I have the ability to see the bar now, but have no idea how to get near it.

I am sick and tired of the school prioritizing sports over academics. So many academic buildings are built way off campus while the sports complexes are being built in center campus. Honestly, if their sports teams were good I would be more willing to have a 35 minute plus walk to class. Sadly, the sports teams absolutely suck, which means I am walking that extra distance to east campus for absolutely nothing!

If you are doing CSCI major expect the following; 1) Completely useless TA's for recitation --- Pretty much all grad students that are either Indian or Chinese with "heavy" accent. I have no idea why anyone would hire a teacher who can't speak the native tongue or communicate what they are trying to teach. It is absolutely mind boggling. And worst of all, they've got absolutely no desire to help you during their office hours or recitation. They are just there to get free tuition assistance from the school for being a TA. 2) Professor's that will have somewhat useful lectures --- Expect to google 24/7 and learn everything by yourself --- With or without the TA or professor, not much will change. --- This could literally be a online class with just assignments and tests which would be probably better. Then I don't have to bother to go recitation or lectures just to hear about the little changes here and there for the homework, due dates, tests, and other stuff alike. --- The TA's and prof's have <> 3) Any other CSCI help room is pretty much useless. --- Cannot articulate simple concepts. For godsakes these students they choose to help you can't explain anything. They know the material and understand it themselves, but they can't communicate that to you. I completely understand that for most majors, it is pretty much just you and the material, but there should be guidance to help you learn this material, and the CSCI department offers absolutely zero help.

This only pertains to a single aspect of disability services: access to a powered cart. Recently, I suffered a collapsed lung which required a chest tube, an unpleasant experience. Exacerbating this via walking can cause a recollapse and thus, another procedure. As I need to finish my final exams, walking to and from class is required. When I tried to contact Wardenberg they sent me to disability services, when I called disability services they sent me to dean of students, when I called the dean of students I was told that there is no available kart for students needing one. The representative stated that she too has been upset for a while that such a service does not exist for students in need. Gardeners have karts, and I have seen non-gardener karts on campus which I presume belong to sports related departments on campus, so why can't this university buy a single kart for disability services? Not only that, but despite demand from students AND CU Boulder representatives, no one is willing to make a change.

Really beautiful campus. Open to walk around and see it for yourself at your own pace. Stadium has a wonderful view, and the grounds/facilities are well kept.

Gosh I remember my first day. Went in and all I could see were the "thanks for filling up my wallet" looks on the faces of every darn faculty. If ya'll want to throw your gold down the well, be my guest. Then get into the corral with bucky the spearheaded bull, since that's how debt is gonna feel like. Getting trampled by the government's heavy hoofs for the rest of ya'll infinite life. Your welcome, for your damn suits. Anything else I can buy you, you white collar pricks?

A great school for a writer-to-be! It serves as the backdrop for my MADE OF STEEL chapter in my forthcoming Coming of Age book. The varied activities and the dorm experience were terrific. Plus, I was one of the original streakers on campus back in the day.
