After three seasons growing in the challenging conditions of the Rocky Mountains, five perennial plants have been named “Top Performers” by researchers at Colorado State University.
A tiny spiral-bound booklet, 1946-47 Colorado A&M Frosh Bible, recently came into our possession. Its purpose was to introduce “the class of ’50 to Aggie life, policies, ideals, and spirit.” Flipping through the pages of this booklet reminds us of how much has changed in the last two-thirds of a century as well as those things that have endured.
CSU Alumni and Fort Collins residents may remember Batson’s Drug Store on College Avenue near campus, but they probably didn’t realize that its owner, John Perry Batson (B.A., ’43), was a decorated World War II veteran who stormed Utah Beach during the D-Day invasion of Normandy.
From 78 degrees on Tuesday to snow on Wednesday? Swings like this aren’t unusual in the central United States, where weather can quickly shift from one extreme to another.

Fort Collins native Joe Mazur (B.S., ’94) knew he wanted to be a sports broadcaster since he was a young child. His version of “must-see TV” was a Channel 9 sportscast. He would read the sports section of the Coloradoan newspaper aloud to his mother, honing his on-air delivery style. While at CSU, Mazur focused his studies on psychology and journalism, the content of which became relevant for his career in more ways than he foresaw.
