It’s not easy being green

Kermit the Frog isn’t the only one who takes pride in being green.

And while CSU isn’t an adorable green muppet, it enjoys another mode of greenness, and to celebrate it, CSU will be hosting an Earth Week Green Tour on the Foothills Campus.

A bus to the Foothills Campus will depart from the Lory Student Center Transit Center at 1 p.m., and will arrive at 1:15 for a tour of CSU’s 5.3 megawatt solar plant. From there, the tour will continue to the earth bin composter and biomass boiler before embarking back to the LSC at 2:40.

Space is available for 45 RSVPS, and parking spaces will be available at the metered parking in the LSC lot.

Getting a hold on things

Are you interested in getting a better understanding of your relationship? Well, couples are invited to take a stab at strengthening their relationships on Thursday during the last “Hold Me Tight” workshop.

According to the CSU events calendar, the workshop has a 70 to 75 percent rate in helping couples recognize a negative conflict cycle, prevent them in the future and, ultimately, reconnect.

The final workshop is from 6 to 7:30 p.m and costs $45.

For more information about location, or if you’re interested in registering, participants are encouraged to contact the Center for Family and Couple Therapy at (970) 491-5991.
