FALLING INTO PLACE    Sometimes summertime ain’t so fine. Honestly, there are times that the sunny season, which we expect to be full of adventure and relaxation and rejuvenation, surprises us with responsibilities and stress and soul-sucking things. I’m finding Fall 2016 to be the

FROM THE EDITOR: Best-Worst

Best and worst go together like chocolate and peanut butter— unless you have a nut allergy. But this week’s final issue of the semester for the CU Denver Sentry is dedicated to just that. No, not a nut allergy. We’ve devoted our 16 pages to

FROM THE EDITOR: Accomplishments

Like any child of middle America, I played soccer. It’s like a rite of passage for 10-year-olds. I hated it, running all over the damn place, hot sun pouring down with the sweat that hampered my vision, and all my demonstrably thin friends barely losing

FROM THE EDITOR: Boss In Charge

When I joined the student newspaper two and a half years ago, my first inclination was not to take it too seriously. Of course, that was how I felt about all aspects of my personal life, and considered this position no differently. In the midst

FROM THE EDITOR: Day for Women

Before CU Denver, I was a proud student at Fort Lewis College. Say what you want about Fort Leisure—I mean Fort Loser—I mean Snort Lewis—it was fun. And it was wholly unique in terms of settings, sitting quietly on top of a plateau overlooking the

FROM THE EDITOR: Spammin’

We live in an age of fraud. I don’t mean to be dramatic or repeat a bunch of meaningless taglines, but it’s true that nowadays value is only skin-deep. It’s a lesson learned over time—nothing is what it seems to be. I understand why everyone

FROM THE EDITOR: Tivoli Haunts

There are a lot of late nights working for a newspaper, almost infamously. You picture a darkened newsroom filled with the sound of anxious chatter, clicking computers, and shuffling papers. At the Sentry, we hear more than the typical noises late at night when we
