Celebrate the art of the children

Some say the youth are the most artistically pure of all humans –– not having been jaded by the filter of societal conventions.

And there’s only one way to find out if this is true: attend the Poudre School District Student Art Show at the Lincoln Center tonight at 7 p.m.

At tonight’s show, students from kindergartners to high schoolers will showcase their original artwork to the public.

The show is in conjunction with Youth Art Month, and it is free and open to the public.

CSU makes the Final Four… in environmental academics

While CSU’s basketball team didn’t even crack the top 32 of the NCAA tournament, CSU made it into the “Final Four” universities who excel in environmental education, according to Enviance Inc.

While Colby College was ultimately selected as the contest winner, those involved with environmental education at CSU think it’s a step in the right direction.

“We were pleased to have been considered in this designation and look forward to next year’s competition,” said university Distinguished Professor Diana Wall, founding director of CSU’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability, which led CSU’s efforts in the competition, in a news release.

The first-ever March Madness Tournament for environmental sustainability was created to recognize universities across the nation for their sustainability and environmental efforts, according to a press release from Enviance.

It’s always tea time!

Sometimes, you just need to sit down, take a breather and have a nice, piping hot glass of tea.

And the Graduate Student Council is giving you the chance to do just that at 5 p.m. today in the University Club in the Lory Student Center.

The “Tuesday Tea for Graduate Students,” is a monthly social for graduate and professional students to mingle and network.

They are held the first Tuesday of every month, and include cookies and various other delicious confections.
