Assault reported on CSU campus Thursday was false

The Colorado State University Police Department has arrested a CSU student for two counts of false reporting, one of which includes the possible assault reported Thursday night on the Vietnam Bridge near the corner of Plum Street and Meridian Avenue.

The student has been identified by CSUPD as Ricky Sean Lukacs, an undeclared freshman. Earlier this week, Lukacs reported to CSUPD that he received an unsigned, threatening letter. He has been arrested and booked at the Larimer County Justice Center on two counts of false reporting to authorities.

In light of Lukacs’ report about the possible assault, the CSU Public Safety Team sent a campuswide text informing students to be on the lookout for an unknown white, college-aged male wearing dark clothes and riding a dark bicycle.

The Public Safety Team retracted this report on Friday morning.

Clarinet virtuoso coming to campus

If you’re like most students, Squidward (from “Spongebob Squarepants”) might be the only clarinetist you’ve ever heard of.

And, if you want to expand your clarinet knowledge beyond Nickelodeon cartoons from your childhood, the University Center for the Arts will be showcasing clarinet virtuoso Wesley Ferreira tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the UCA Organ Recital Hall.

The recital, called “Joie de Vivre,” or the joy of life, will include Jules Mazellier’s Fantasie-Ballet, Eugene Bozza’s Claribel and two popular works by Claude Debussy.

“In these works, a sense of joy is characterized in different ways, allowing the clarinetist to use a variety of colors to paint an uplifting musical portrait,” Ferreira said.

Tickets are $7 for CSU students, $12 for adults and $1 for youth ages 2 to 17.

Mixed Race Week coming to CSU

Today marks the beginning of the fourth annual Mixed Race Week, a series of presentations and activities celebrating the multiracial and interracial community here at CSU.

The event is sponsored by Shades of CSU, an organization dedicated to multiracial students which, according to an entry in the events calendar, is one of the only such organizations in the country.

Events are slated throughout the week, and are available on the events calendar.

Get your active learning on

“Tell me, and I forget. Show me, and I remember. Remember me, and I understand.”

This ancient Chinese proverb captures some of the difficulty many of us have in recalling information, according to an entry on the events calendar, something the Institute for Learning and Teaching believes we all should improve upon.

And today at 4 p.m., students interested in learning actively can attend a workshop in TILT, Room 105, which will teach them how to achieve deeper learning, something that experts say is both enriching to your academic and personal life.
