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.

This week, Feb. 24 to Mar. 2, is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week and eating disorders are more prevalent on college campuses than many people realize. According to the National Eating Disorders Association, 60 to 90 percent of women on college campuses are dieting to try to lose weight and 10 to 18 percent of men struggle with compulsive exercising, abusing supplements or steroids, and undergoing cosmetic surgery. Many college students like Kalista Consol struggle with helping friends with eating disorders as well as struggle with the disorder themselves. There are many resources at CSU to help students fight the mental ailment and the CSU Health Network offers both counseling and help from nutritionists. Their counseling services can be reached at (970) 491-6053. With media influences in every direction telling women and men how they should look, it is important to be aware of the prevalence of eating disorders, which is what this week is all about. According to The Body Project, most female models are thinner than 98 percent of American women.

Cute heels that would be a bad idea to wear on campus (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Waking up in the morning, you go to your closet and pick out an adorable outfit to wear for the day, often times going through about five different outfit selections till you find the right one. Then comes the important decision of what shoes to wear. You glance at your gorgeous new pumps that you recently bought and ask yourself that common question that every college girl deals with: is it worth it to wear heels on campus?

I believe that there are three different types of girls when it comes to whether or not they wear heels on campus:

The Clickers: These are the girls who know how to walk in heels and how to pick the perfect pair of heels to accessorize with any outfit. They are often seen walking all over town and campus wearing heels, and the days that you don’t see them wearing heels is a complete shocker. If you ever look at their feet, you will probably not be surprised to see a ton of different blisters from the constant day to day wearing of heels. Also, they will always keep a package of band-aids handy in their purse.

The Sorority Girls: These are the girls that only wear heels on occasion on campus. Most of the time you will see them wearing flats or other types of shoes instead of their pumps; but when you do see them wearing them, you get a 50/50 scenario in which some can pull them off while others can’t. The ones that can’t pull it off will often be seen wearing some tight skirt and top that is always revealing just a little too much.

The Hippies: These are the girls who will avoid wearing heels at all costs. When it comes to their shoes, they are always for comfort. On that very rare occasion when they dress up, they will wear a cute pair of flats but never heels. Comfort, Comfort, Comfort, it is all that matters to them.

Whatever your opinion on heels may be, there is always one rule for wearing heels: if you don’t know how to walk in heels, don’t wear them, or at least get some practice before you do. There is nothing that I hate more than seeing a girl who is wearing an adorable outfit with some heels and is stumbling all over the place. It just ruins the whole look.

In the end though, its always up to you to determine when or whether to wear heels or not, but ask yourself that question girls, which category do you fall under?

The CSU Governing Board voted unanimously to move forward with the on-campus stadium project.

However, this approval does not mean a new football stadium will appear on campus in the next couple of years.  The board instead advised President Tony Frank:
– To embark on fundraising efforts to raise at least have of the proposed $246 million cost.
– Go forward with the program development program and add the stadium to the campus master plan
– Submit a financial proposal to the governing board
– Work with community to minimize impact, should the stadium go up
If Frank hits this target within the two years, Frank is to update the board.
