Rams to ‘White Out’ Hughes Stadium

Rams football will face No. 5 Boise State tomorrow at 4 p.m., and they’ll be wearing their all-white uniforms at home for the first time since 1980.

Fans are also encouraged to wear white, and Poudre Valley Health System and The Mtn. combined to produce white t-shirts that they’ll pass out to the first 5,000 attendees.

This will be a historical game for Boise State and CSU –– Boise State has never played a Mountain West game, and this will be the first time CSU and Boise State football have ever matched up.

Learn the ‘Zen’ approach to living

Tonight at 7 p.m. in Lory Student Center room 228, professional “dharma teachers” Larry Ward and Peggy Rowe Ward will teach how to achieve peace, karma and bliss in a turbulent world.

The Wards were ordained by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh in 2001, and they co-authored “Love’s Garden: A Guide to Mindful Relationships,” which was named one of the “Best Buddhist Books of 2009.”

The event, Zen Practice and Your Brain: Where’s the Love, is sponsored by ASCSU, the CSU Zen Club, the Colorado Community of Mindful Living and Peaceful Heart Sangha.
