CU campus Review
The CU campus began in 1875 with the construction of Old Main, which borders the Norlin Quadrangle, now on the National Register of Historic Places, a broad lawn where students sun themselves or play a quick round of Frisbee between classes. You can take a walking tour of the campus year-round.
CU Heritage Center. One room at the CU Heritage Center—which preserves the history of the university, including notable alumni accomplishments and a lunar sample on long-term loan from NASA—is devoted to CU's 18 astronauts, such as Ellison Onizuka, who was killed aboard the Challenger space shuttle in 1986, and Kalpana Chawla, who died on the Columbia in 2003. Also displayed are the personal memorabilia of alumni such as Robert Redford and Glenn Miller. Old Main Bldg. on Norlin Quadrangle, 459 UCB, 80309. 303/492–6329. www.cuheritage.org. Free.
