Register for queer, allied student leadership retreat

The Gender and Sexuality Center at CU welcomes all incoming LGBTQ and allied students to our annual, day-long retreat to meet current student leaders and learn about the LGBTQ community on campus, current initiatives and ways to get involved. RSVP by Aug. 18 to gsc@colorado.edu to attend.

Friday, Aug. 25, 9 to 5 p.m.
Center for Community (C4C), Flatirons Room

Free print production training class Aug. 2

Join Strategic Relations for the latest no-cost print production training course: Paper Stock and Recycling. Walk-ins are welcome, but each class is limited to 15 people. Classes are held the first Wednesday of the month.

Not all papers are created equal. Asking for a brochure to be “printed on white paper” could result in a wide variety of outcomes. Learn about some little-known truths involving recycled content, carbon footprints and the sustainability certifications earned by paper mills and printing presses. And each decision can affect your cost.

Wednesday, Aug. 2, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Center for Community (C4C), room 435S
