When I arrived at Hodi’s Half Note in Old Town at 7 p.m. Monday, I anticipated a decent crowd, a lively atmosphere and some funny jokes. Instead, I encountered what felt like a small crowd of predominantly male ‘regulars’... READ MORE
For anyone else, it’s the Monday of finals week. Some of us are cursed with 7:30 a.m. exams, others are unfortunate enough to have a Friday test, and still others have an array of exams in between. This is the end of the semester, with frantic study sessions and... READ MORE
We’ve already seen the massive, unfamiliar green beast travel up and down Mason numerous times throughout the semester, but the testing phase is over. The MAX Transit System of Fort Collins has finally arrived.

Graduation time brings about a period of reflection among us students. The commencement speeches reminisce about the collegiate experience, newly minted alumni deliver parting remarks to the institutions, colleagues and friends they now depart from, and all the while summer looms, and my mind wanders through collective experiences to...
