Upcoming Events

Student Health Fair Today

The annual Student Health Fair from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. today (Nov. 8) on the lower level of the UC will offer students free health screenings, including blood pressure checks, pulse ox readings, blood glucose testing, consultations with vision and dental professionals, and lots of other health information. Free flu shots will also be available. The more tables you visit, the more chances you'll have to win a mountain bike.

IFS Film, Panel Address Influence of Water in the West

The International Film Series closes its fall semester season with a free screening of the documentary film The Great Divide at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, in Michener Library's Lindou Auditorium. The film will be followed by a panel discussion on Colorado water conservation. Both are free and open to the public.

The film illustrates the timeless influence of water in both connecting and dividing an arid state and region. From ancient Puebloan cultures and the gold rush origins of Colorado water law to agriculture, dams, diversions and conservation; the film reveals today's critical need to cross "the great divide," replacing conflict with cooperation.

This film is offered in collaboration with the Go West Film Festival.
