Parking tickets for a good cause

Food for Fines, a fundraiser put on every semester by CSU Parking Services, will accept canned food donations in exchange for parking ticket amnesty until May 13.

Students who bring in a non-perishable food item will receive $3 off their parking citation. Donations will also lower elevated citations to their original fine amount. Only one donation will be accepted per citation, though students with multiple citations can bring in as many donations as they have tickets.

The offer is not valid for students whose citations have already been transferred to their university accounts.

The collected donations will go to the Larimer County Food Bank. Parking Services has donated more than 12,000 pounds of food since the programs inception in 1998.

Parking Services is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is located in the Lake Street Garage.

Bringin’ back the book buyback

It’s that time of year again: the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming and long lines of students trying to sell coffee-stained textbooks are lining up outside of the Clark building.

CSU Bookstore Textbook Buyback runs today until Friday, May 13, with locations across campus, including outside of the Clark Building on the west side, in the Moby Parking Lot, in the Academic Village and at the CSU Bookstore.

Students are given cash for their used books, and the price of the book is dependent on the books’ use next term, its condition and whether or not the book has new editions.

Times during which buyback is available vary from location to location, and an exact schedule can be found at

Style with the CSU Women’s Association

Students looking for some fun this afternoon can go to Westminster Presbyterian Church to watch the CSU Women’s Association model the latest fashions from the Dress Barn.

This is the final CSUWA program of the year, and the last opportunity to purchase handmade cards sponsored by the Women’s Association.
The CSUWA celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2010 and serves as a social group aimed at raising money for scholarships for CSU students.
The fashion show will begin at 1 p.m. and the church is located at 1709 W. Elizabeth St.
