The Golden Rules of Minimalist Fashion, According to This Stylish College Girl

Minimalism is SO in. Here's how to make it work for you, according to one of the most fashionable students at UM.Whenever I spot my friend Delaney on campus at the University of Miami, I always think to myself, “This girl really understands the ins and outs of style.” In a time where trends change week by week, it is rare to find someone who values a sustainable closet and shops clothes that will last, not just end up in the back of the closet. Delaney dresses in a very minimalistic style with n...

Cheap ski resorts in famous areas

Skiing is a notoriously expensive hobby. The equipment, the clothing, the $12 beers — all in addition to the cost of getting on the hill. For those lacking a season pass, planning a trip to the mountain is an intimidating prospect. Getting on the gondola at Aspen can cost you over $150. Lift tickets at some resorts have gotten so expensive that prices are hard to even find on their websites. Fortunately, there are more affordable options, some even leaving enough in your wallet to splurge on ...

Hear the Last Time the Jimi Hendrix Experience Ever Played Together: The Riotous Denver Pop Festival of 1969

You know it’s got to be bad when you quit the Jimi Hendrix Experience just months after the revolutionary, expansive Electric Ladyland hit number one on US and UK charts, but if you’re Noel Redding, you’re plenty fed up with the psychedelic circus. “The recording sessions were ridiculous,” Redding told Rolling Stone in a 1969 interview, “and on stage, it was getting ridiculous.” The last straw for Redding had come a few months earlier at the Denver Pop Festival in June. After tear gas fo...

See a Full Jimi Hendrix Experience Concert on Restored Footage Thought Lost for 35 Years

Maybe there’s truth to the old joke about the 60s—“If you remember it, you weren’t there”—but it's hard to believe anyone could forget seeing Hendrix. If you caught him in Stockholm in 1969 however and it somehow slipped your mind, you can relive it again for the first time in the well-preserved, newly restored concert film above: a full hour of “electric church music” from the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The event was not meant to have been preserved at all. As Catarina Wilson of Sweden’s ...

Catholic high school suppressed student newspaper article, drawing wide attention to it

I have no idea why teenage girls would be suddenly removed from certain roles at a Catholic high school in a Denver suburb. But now I'm wondering, like many others, because the school administrators removed an article about it from the school's low-circulation newspaper, suppressed publication of the newspaper itself, threatened and then removed a newspaper advisor from her post, and sent principal Matt Hauptly to go out in public and explain why this isn't technically censorship and to lecture ...

$2 million for CS & STEM education for aspiring women and student technologists

In 1993, I moved from India to the United States to enroll as an undergraduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder. The transition to the U.S. was overwhelming. I wasn’t prepared for the culture shock of being both a first-generation college student and one of very few women in my computer science department. I also wasn’t totally confident that a career in computer science was right for me—I didn’t have access to a computer until my late teens and didn’t have much of an interest in co...

Is LA Unified too slow to help its neediest students?

By Esmeralda Fabián Romero | LA School Report Two reports released Tuesday, June 7, urged the Los Unified School District to start making tough choices to boost student achievement and to move faster in delivering more funds to the schools serving the neediest students. The first study found that LA Unified has been slow to get increased state funding to the schools serving students with the highest needs, particularly in elementary and middle schools.

Teachers in Arizona, Colorado rally to protest funding, pay

By MELISSA DANIELS The Associated PressPHOENIX — A wave of red-clad teachers was poised to flood the Arizona state Capitol on Thursday for an unprecedented walkout that closed most of the state’s public schools, part of an educator uprising that’s also bubbled up in Colorado. Around 30,000 to 50,000 teachers and their supporters were getting ready to march through Phoenix for a rally at the Arizona state Capitol to demand a 20 percent raise for teachers, about $1 billion to return school funding...

Nine Tips from Bill Murray & Cellist Jan Vogler on How to Study Intensely and Optimize Your Learning

Photo by Gage Skidmore, via Wikimedia Commons Would you take study tips from Bill Murray? After high school, he did spend some time as a pre-medical student at Regis University in Denver — before dropping out to return to his hometown of Chicago and get his start in comedy with the famed improv group Second City. Still, Regis did eventually award him an honorary Doctor of Humanities a decade ago, and you have to admit that the fame-and-fortune path worked out for him. In fact, it worked out and...

Bob Dylan Plays Tom Petty’s “Learning to Fly” Live in Concert (and How Petty Witnessed Dylan’s Musical Epiphany in 1987)

While performing in Denver this past weekend, Bob Dylan paid tribute to Tom Petty, playing a cover of his 1991 track, "Learning to Fly." Most will remember their time together in the Traveling Wilburys. But really their relationship was cemented before that, when the musicians embarked on the long True Confessions Tour in 1986. That's when Dylan lost his mojo and nearly ended his career, then suddenly found new inspiration again, all while Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers shared the same ...

The 7 Summer Pieces You Need in Your Life ASAP

All for under $38! For most college students, summer has begun. Time to meet back up with hometown friends, take a three-month break from essays, and spend time with family. Oh, and did I mention - the adorable summertime fashion? As I write this, I am not quite to summer yet (two more weeks - got to love the quarter system!).

Asking Right Questions of Unsuspecting People

It’s important to know about students and the general student life of a college before you plan to join it. The admissions people will often be biased in providing these answers. So who to ask then?

The untold story of Match Day emotion

It’s Match Day.  Standing with my medical school class in the lobby of our medical education center, there is a palpable energy. It had been a long journey. After reluctantly leaving CA for NY I had finally completed four grueling years. The entire time I was laser focused on doing well enough to make it back to California. The four years came and went in a flash, and without hesitation, I will say that the last two years had been some of the most rewarding and fun years of my life. Working hard...

Finding Oneself in the Liberal Arts

In a striking opinion piece published in the New York Times, Joshua Kam describes the angst of being a cosmopolitan international student in Middle America. After finding the right college and finding the right major for him, he often found himself struggling to explain his origins to people he met, and justifying a liberal arts major that helped him find context in his life. This is another example of how the liberal arts are truly “liberating.”  This young man’s foray into history and the Clas...

8 Cute Pairs of Snow Boots to Get You Through Winter

You'll never get cold feet again. Unless your home state is unreasonably warm, you probably know the struggle that is walking across campus in a tremendous amount of snow. The cold that makes a college student rethink even leaving their dorm. For the longest time, I was resistant to the idea of wearing snow boots. I wanted to look super put-together with my leather ballet flats or sneakers. However, when I got to college, I knew I had to get serious. Snow in your shoes is seriously no fun-and s...

Stanford University Won’t Release Early Admissions Data

Standford University won’t release its early admissions data this December, as it has done the past several years. Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Richard Shaw told Stanford’s newspaper, the Stanford Daily, that the releases of data in the last several years were informal acts, and that Stanford’s official policy has always been to release the data publicly once all applicants have been notified of their decisions.

Brown University Admits 695 Early Applicants

Look at Brown University‘s early admissions statistics over the years, and you see that nearly everything is going up: the proportion of students accepted, the sheer number of students accepted, the number of applicants, the proportion of accepted students who are students of color. Of 3,170 early applicants to the Class of 2021, 695 (22%) were accepted. Another interesting statistic this year: Almost 60% of accepted ED applicants are female.

MIT Grants Early Admission to Less Than 8% of Applicants

Is a Particular College a “Suitcase School”? Here’s How to Find Out

A NY Times article mentions that according to a 2012 end-of-year survey by the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, 39% of first year students at less selective campuses said they had gone home frequently. As the article indicates, this is a concern at regional campuses and is a trend and culture that many educators are trying to reverse. College educators and administrators are concerned that too many students heading home each weekend will drain so...
