PSA: CU Move In Week

by Osman Parvez
One Man's Treasure (42nd Street)
In case you haven't noticed all the moving trucks in town, the CU students are back. Classes won't begin for several weeks, but Boulder is already bustling with activity. 

Public Service Announcement: 

- Young college students from out of town are not prepared for the volume of pedestrians and cyclists in Boulder. Every year, I witness car vs cyclist/pedestrian accidents that occur during August. Young people, large vehicles, and the excitement of a new place all contribute to the carnage.  Be safe. Double check that vehicles are stopping before entering crosswalks. Being right and having the right of way won't spare you the broken leg.

- Rental units typically turn over on the last day of the month. Don't be surprised if you find strangers prowling the alley behind your house this week. It's a tradition in Boulder. This is the week for dumpster diving.  

- If you're a neighbor to a rental unit, don't be shy.  Say hello and welcome the new tenants to the neighborhood. Students add tremendous vibrancy to Boulder's neighborhoods. At our house, we have new graduate student neighbors across the street. They're from China and studying civil engineering. 

- With the students come parents and family. If you're planning on a night out, reservations are probably a good idea for the area's best restaurants.  It will calm down again soon, but for the next week or so, better plan ahead.
