It’s our favorite campus holiday: Bacchanal! It’s the time of year when you shed your seasonal depression, wear shorts no matter the weather, and end your night at 3 PM only to wake up and party later.

Tuesday Daily Vivian Zhou and Deputy Editor Idris O’Neill lived to tell the tale of CU Players’ The Great Gatsby. The play opens with a casual atmosphere, inviting the audience to […]
The glaring red notification on your Mail app seems to glow just a little more intensely this month. You’re haunted by the drafted emails you’ve really only got as far as “Dear Professor” with.
