Whether students are out hitting the party scene or grabbing a late night bite, CU is always out and about. From Pearl Street to the Hill, there are always noteworthy places for students to keep busy.
Older students have the advantage of going to popular bars. Cole Weaver, a 22-year-old junior and environmental studies major, is one of those students.
“I like to go to the Walrus because I can drink cheap there,” Weaver said.
Amy Stein, a 21-year-old senior sociology major, said she is always looking for a good scene.
“I usually go to the Walrus, the Attic, the Goose, and then peoples’ houses after,” Stein said.
The music scene is another popular hang-out spot for many people. There are always concerts happening in Boulder, sometimes even free of cost.
Ellie Moore, an 18-year-old studio art major, said she usually hangs around the dorms during the weekdays, but heads out with her friends on the weekends.
“We usually go to people’s houses or the Fox Theater,” Moore said. “Concerts are fun places to be with your friends.”
There are also more traditional places for students to hang out, like dorms or fraternities. Andre Moutsos, a 19-year-old freshman philosophy major, said he prefers the frat scene.
“Weekends, I am usually at Acacia,” Moutsos said.
Drew Butler, a 20-year-old junior English major, said he takes his priorities into account when deciding where to relax at night.
“I am a RA (residence advisor),” Butler said. “So I generally hang out on my floor with my residents during the weekday nights.”
