With ASCSU elections winding down, a new Student Body President will be elected into office on Wednesday, April 10.

One year ago, Regina Martel was elected as the 2012-1013 ASCSU President.

While campaigning, her administration outlined 16 different goals in their Feasibility Report to complete throughout the year.

Overall, they successfully completed more than 50% of their goals including student forums, future construction on campus and keeping blue books free.

They fell short on creating a syllabi sharing website, improving Wi-Fi across campus and implementing a bike library.

Sustainability and being green is something Colorado State University has always focused on. A new project being put into place by ASCSU and the city of Fort Collins will help our university withhold these environmental standards. CSU, being a bicycle friendly campus, is looking into working with the city of fort collins to implement a bike sharing network across the city. The primary goals of this project is to provide bicycles for students and resident of Fort Collins that will increase campus accessibility and hopefully relieve campus traffic.

This project will provide kiosks at bus stops and transit centers in which anyone can rent a bike to ride anywhere in Fort Collins. It will also include more bike racks on campus and the option to leave your bike in an overnight locker. With Meridian being closed, the possible on-campus stadium and a lack of student parking already, ASCSU hopes this project will help our university as well as maintain the image of being green.

DEVELOPING: CSU freshman apologizes for driving RamRide vehicle while high

Colorado State University freshman Karl La Borde apologized to the CSU community Tuesday night, in an interview with CTV.

La Borde was pulled over Friday morning near the intersection of College Ave and Laurel on suspicion of speeding and DUI. La Borde was driving a CSU RamRide vehicle.  After the officer approached the vehicle, he requested to search the car for marijuana, as he smelt the scent of the drug.

According to La Borde, he had smoked “…a small amount of weed” while pulled over during a break.  A self-proclaimed “recreational marijuana smoker”, La Borde believed he had not smoked enough marijuana to be considered intoxicated.

In an interview with CTV, La Borde said — I now realize that driving under the influence of marijuana is the same as driving drunk.–

La Borde admitted that he was not in the appropriate state of mind to be operating a vehicle, and he said he believed he was putting others’ lives in danger.

–I will never drive while high on marijuana, and I will take the keys out of the hands of whoever tries.–

La Borde claimed that after the arrest, he went back to his dormitory and threw away all of his drugs, drug paraphernalia, and drug related items.

La Borde expressed that he was putting other people’s lives in danger, and that he was glad that he didn’t hit or kill anyone.

RamRide is a weekend program offered by the ASCSU office at CSU. The program offers safe rides home for those who may have had too much to drink. Karl La Borde did have a partner who was in the car with him.  The ‘navigator’ was not taken to jail.
