The University of Northern Colorado's Graduate School will commemorate 100 years of providing post-baccalaureate education this year and is starting the celebration by asking its alumni to share memories of their experiences as grad students and where they are now on the "Century of Scholars" website.
The website is a window through time, containing a detailed history of the Graduate School, a timeline marking 100 years of milestones, an events calendar and a place for alumni and others to share their stories.
Black and white photos of the Classes of 1913, 1920, 1956 and many others appear throughout the site, and several stories from recent and not-so-recent graduates are already available for reading, allowing visitors to the site to easily compare the experiences of someone who graduated in 1965 to those of someone who graduated as recently as 2011.
In 1913, three students at what was then called Colorado Teachers College received the first master's degrees - in teaching, of course - awarded by the school. Today, the Graduate School has 2395 students enrolled and more than 100 programs of study. The school has awarded a total 53,457 graduate degrees.
The UNC campus map at http://www.unco.edu/uncmap/ has a new look and many new features such as a draggable image and zoom levels for closer views; selectable layers for street names, parking lots and other map elements; the ability to click on a building to bring up a description, photos and its history; and an interface with Google maps to find driving directions. Even though the old URL redirects to the new map, web authors are asked to update links on their site, especially those that are to a enlarged map view.

Greeley's Jan. 21 celebration of the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr. will include the traditional three-block march in downtown, live music, poetry and a keynote address by former NFL cornerback Wade Davis.
The celebration, in its 18th year, will begin at 10:30 a.m. with a march from the Greeley Chamber of Commerce at 902 7th Ave. to the Union Colony Civic Center at 701 10th Ave., where activities, including Davis' address, continue at 11 a.m.
Davis played briefly for the Tennessee Titans, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks before moving to the NFL Europe league, where his career was cut short by knee injuries after winning a league championship with the Berlin Thunder.
He entered the national spotlight this summer when he became the third former NFL player to speak publicly about what it was like to be a closeted gay man in the league.
Davis, a nationally recognized speaker, activist, writer and educator, currently works with youth 14-24 as assistant director of job readiness at the Hetrick-Martin Institute in New York City.
His writings have been included in The Huffington Post, The New York Times and OutSports.com, and he's appeared on NPR, CNN and BET. His autobiography, Interference, will be published later this year.
Davis will be available for pictures and autographs following the event.
