The Experience of Experimental Cinema; The Unseen Festival: September 1 – 30

September 19th, 2018

Ever since entering the Film Studies program at CU Boulder, I have become privy to how complex and marvelous cinema is. It has also made me realize that film has more to offer than what is commercially popular. There are hundreds upon hundreds of brilliant films which go unrecognized, mostly owing to lack of exposure. However, there are programs which strive to remedy this. One of these is the Unseen Festival, which will take place in Boulder and Denver over a thirty-day period. The Unseen Festival is focused mostly on experimental films, many of which are not shown elsewhere. In attempting to... Read More

Creative Ways To Cut Costs This Coming Semester

February 13th, 2018

Unfortunately, being a college student has become synonymous with scrounging beneath your futon for quarters and eating .99 cent microwave meals, while simultaneously dropping every last dollar on this semester’s textbooks. It’s expensive, and your stomach is not thanking you for the heaves of Rice-A-Roni and PBR. We get it: you’re too busy with the grand balancing act of magically passing your Stats midterm and finishing that half-asleep paper on Chaucer at two in the morning. You’re red- eyed in the not-so-fun way, you sleep talk to your Chem flashcards, and your back aches from... Read More

February 5th, 2018

From January 22 to June 10 2018, Fiske Planetarium will showcase the creative work of Jacob Lemanski, a former design engineer. The exhibit features eight massive, continuously changing ant farms put to a backdrop of selections from the Hubble Space Telescope. The inspiration behind these meditative and dreamy installations, lies in Lemanski’s decision to quit his job and ride his bike 38,000 miles across the world (twice) over 999 days. During his trip, he discovered the art in solitude, self-reliance, and mindfulness. Upon returning, he felt compelled to build something that was personal... Read More

College is such the opportune time for personal growth and exploration, with young students investing their energy in finding the right path of study, in the friend group that makes them feel most fulfilled, and in paving the first trail toward independence and adulthood.

How to Deal with Stress this Semester

January 9th, 2018

Stress is one of the most difficult obstacles to maneuver throughout adulthood, and college life is often the first head-on lesson in managing it. Unfortunately, most of us struggle unremittingly with stress before learning how to cope.   In fact, according to the 2015 National College Health Assessment, although only 30% of students report that stress negatively affected their year, an entire 85% reported feeling completely overwhelmed at least once by everything on their plate during the school year. It’s tiresome to keep your head above water with the constant onslaught of academic workload,... Read More
