Boulder remembrance to be held evening of March 22

People hold hands outdoors near a sidewalk; one has a bouquet of flowers.

The city of Boulder, along with several local partners, will be holding a remembrance event to mark the two years that have passed since the March 22, 2021, mass shooting in Boulder. That day, Boulder lost 10 community members.

Join in person at eTown Hall (1535 Spruce St.) or via livestream. The event is free and open to the public. Advance registration required.

You could be the cure: Visit Be the Match tables on campus

Be the Match flyer.

Join Be The Match efforts from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on campus now through March 22.

Help add new potential blood stem cell donors to the registry. Why? Because every three to four minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer or blood disorder, and it could be you or someone you love. Seventy percent of patients need an unrelated donor to treat their disease.

The cure is literally in you, and 90 percent of the time, donation is similar to giving platelets or plasma. Be on the look out for tables across campus––at the UMC, Rec Center, Engineering Center, C4C and Farrand Field––through March 22

Do you live off campus? Pick up your trash to avoid a citation

Picking up your trash is even more important now that the Boulder City Council recently passed an ordinance that adds a civil violation to the city’s trash violation process.

Starting Saturday, March 18, the ordinance will make it easier for police officers to issue you a trash citation. Under the previous process, residents would receive a warning to clean up their trash by a certain deadline. If the violation was not fixed in time, an officer would have served the resident a criminal summons, which needs to be received in person and signed by the resident.

The new civil process still includes a warning to clean up by a certain deadline. However, instead of an officer needing to serve you a criminal summons in person, they can post the civil citation on your door or email it to your landlord. This change saves time for officers and makes it easier to deliver a citation.

The new process also established new fines:

  • $100 for a first offense
  • $250 for a second offense
  • $500 for a third offense

Students can get free trash bags from Off-Campus Housing & Neighborhood Relations by stopping by their office in UMC 313.

CU Boulder alerts system test set for March 21

A person checks a laptop and a mobile phone.

As part of the continuous assessment of our emergency notification protocols and procedures, campus officials will test the CU Boulder alerts system at approximately 12:20 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21.

This test was originally scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 28. However, due to a high number of alerts sent to the CU Boulder community in the preceding week, the test was rescheduled.

The biannual testing, required by a federal law known as the Clery Act, involves checking the university’s systems for sending text messages, emails, social media posts, computer desktop alerts and website announcements. This testing helps ensure we’re staying up to date with best practices and maintaining readiness to respond in case of emergencies.

Get more information on the types of emergency notifications campus provides. Also, review what to know about how campus emergency notifications work.
