Spooky movies you need to see

Spooky season is the perfect time to get scared with friends, and what better way than to watch a few horror films, heart-pumping thrillers, and scary TV shows together?

Navigating Borders

A border can be so many different things and have so many different implications once it is drawn. Borders define culture, opportunity, and identity. Some borders are visible and tangible while others are conceptual and symbolic. Learn more about how the liberal arts helps us navigate the borders in our lives in the Winter 2021 issue of the College of Liberal Arts Magazine.

Lenses of the Liberal Arts: Health

The focus of our majors in liberal arts - culture, politics, communications, economics, and the like - intertwine with health challenges worldwide that range from pandemics to affordable housing, air quality to spiritual health.

Lenses of the Liberal Arts: Space and Place

In the Winter 2019/Spring 2020 issue of the Liberal Arts Magazine, we apply the lenses of the liberal arts to place and space. Colorado State University and the Clark Building are both spaces located in Fort Collins, along the Front Range, in the Mountain West. But they are also places -- made meaningful by the people attached to them and the memories created within, through, and because of them.
