Registration is open for our 2016 Winter Thaw, featuring Tim Harrower


It’s already been a long winter (and long school year)… all the more reason to join your fellow advisers for a Winter Thaw!

Friday, Jan. 29, 2016
$35 registration fee (includes a box lunch and beverages)

Location: CU-Boulder’s University Memorial Center (UMC), rooms 382-386, 9:30 a.m – 2:30 p.m. The UMC address is 1669 Euclid Avenue (corner of Broadway and Euclid Avenue) Boulder, CO 80309.

Registration is online.

You may pay by secure credit card using the registration form or may pay by check (either mailed or delivered in person on Jan. 29). But all registrations need to be online.

Registration deadline is Jan. 26.

The registration form offers you a choice of sandwich, and there are vegetarian and Vegan options.

Parking: We recommend the Euclid AutoPark, which is just east of the UMC. You need your license plate number to pay at a facility paystation. The EAP parking rate is $2 per hour up to three hours, during the hours of 7:30 a.m. – 5p.m. After three hours, the rate is $4 per hour (and our event runs until about 2:30 p.m., so that $4 rate will apply).

Tim Harrower has been an award-winning editor, designer and columnist at such newspapers as the Times-Union (Rochester, N.Y.) and The Oregonian (Portland, Ore.). He now consults on print and online design, teaches journalism and runs a dog-and-frog ranch deep in the Oregon woods.
