The University of Colorado has struggled to deal with its reputation as a party school for some time now. It was rated the number one party school in 2011 by Playboy Magazine and number three in 2013.
When people began gathering on CU’s campus for 4/20 in 1999, the school’s visibility only grew. Soon, 10,000 people would gather annually to smoke marijuana on the Norlin Quadrangle. In the spring of 2012, CU had had enough.
The CU Independent or CUI for short is the student newspaper for the University of Colorado at Boulder. We cover News, Sports, Politics, Entertainment, and more. Our mission: to give the students at CU an online publication for students and by students, about the things we care about.
