Life according to @OnlyAtUCCS

Posted By on Thu, May 9, 2013 at 2:13 PM


As our Ralph Routon wrote about in this week's Between the Lines, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs is expanding heavily and rapidly.

This means lots of local money and, naturally, lots of students, with plenty of charming college complaints and observations. Luckily, those pupils already have a dedicated public platform: @OnlyAtUCCS.

(The Twitter account just makes me feel old. Back in my days at UCCS, Facebook had just come out. My first profile picture? An image from South Park that read "Don't fuck with Wendy Testaburger!")

With 455 followers and 221 tweets, the account's well-stocked with snippets of mountain lion life, some of which are more universal than the account can claim:

... and its weird weather-cancellation record ...

Ah yes, there is much to look forward to.
