“I do wish that poetry was more recognized as an integral part of our culture, yes. But the irony is that poetry is already a part of our culture,” 20-year Colorado State University professor Deborah Dimon wrote in an email to College Avenue. “We are constantly listening to music” and often their lyrics are poems themselves. Poetry “is not necessarily disconnected from our lives or culture as we think,” Dimon wrote. Even though poetry is present in our daily lives, why should we value it? And what purpose does it serve? “The purpose of poetry is to reach for and explore words and silence,” Dimon wrote. “The page is a field after a heavy snow — white and silent, everything non-essential hushed, muted.

It wasn’t Hollywood. It was a drugstore selling Thrifty ice cream.The 43-year-old attorney lives in New York, and he hadn’t enjoyed a Thrifty cone since he was 10, when he moved out of Burbank. When he spotted the Thrifty logo outside a Rite Aid store in downtown L.A., Becker wanted to show his sons what he experienced growing up. He pulled over and parked. He hauled the kids into the store. He bought them the ice cream, dipped to order in Thrifty’s distinctive cylinder-shaped scoops.“As a little kid, with change in your pocket, it was easy to get an ice cream cone,” Becker recalled. “It was so cheap.”That mix of low prices and nostalgia, coupled with a reputation for tastiness — Thrifty ice creams are perennial medal winners at … [Read more...] about Thrifty ice cream — a portal to childhood — is being sold to Albertsons.

Dear Editor, This letter is in response to the opinion piece that ran on Monday written by Lauren Willson, “Look beyond the health center for mental health resources.” Earlier this week, The Collegian ran an opinion piece written by a student encouraging other students to look outside of the CSU Health Network for mental health resources.

The CSU Health Network Counseling Services is committed to providing quality services that are accessible to all CSU students.

Philosophically, we have decided that it is better to provide as much service as possible to all of our students. … [Read more...] about LTTE: CSU mental health services hears student concerns
