The “What’s up?” weekly

If you’re like us, you can’t believe it’s half-way into April already. With less than a month left of school, we have finals looming and projects to start thinking about (maybe…). Don’t you think a reward for your hard work (or non-work, procrastinators!) should be more than a bowl of ice cream before bed?

Check out some of the events happening around Boulder this week. If you have any events you’d like to see featured next week, email the contact below. Have a great week, buffs!

Program Council presents: Free sneak peek of “Bridesmaids”

This is free, but you have to pick up a ticket in the Program Council office, UMC 401. Get there early; it starts at 8:30 p.m.
