“Steer Stroll” Demonstration Brings Herd through CMU Campus

Grand Junction – Last Friday, members of the Colorado Mesa rodeo team brought a herd of fully grown steers to the Delta Quad and guided them through campus on horseback as a promotion for their upcoming event in Grand Junction. The link below is an up close account from one student who had the opportunity to catch the demonstration on camera as the Mavericks strolled through a busy campus.

Rocky Mountain Sriracha offers students more than just class project

GRAND JUNCTION- Business students, Patrick Wall, Brandon Burton, and Johnny Nitti thought they were just going to be doing a class project when they were contacted by Chris Becker through one of their professors about helping with a product kick-start campaign for Becker’s homemade Rocky Mountain Sriracha. But after all the positive feedback and support they received from sample testers at last years entrepreneurship day, they have developed a plan to continue to push the product and raise money for the kick-start. The obvious question is, what makes Rocky Mountain Sriracha different than any other sriracha? According to Wall, the generic srirachas tend to be what he calls “rooster sauce”, made up of just jalepeno chili peppers and sugar. Becker makes his version with fresh fresno peppers and agave nectar. The hope is that this less processed hot sauce will find a niche in the market for people who like their food a little more authentic. Currently the group is working toward a goal of $8000 by May 14th to get the kick-start up and rolling. They are set for an on-campus sampling next week and if the response is anything like its unveiling at entrepreneurship day last year, the idea is bound for success.

By Allison Ildefonso

The campus radio station, 91.3 KMSA, is hosting its second fashion show of the school year, titled “City of Love and Lights,” next Friday, April 18 at 7 p.m. The event will be held in the University Center ballroom and will include a cocktail hour starting at 6 p.m. for those 21 and over. Unlike last year’s fall fashion, which was free with the donation of an item of clothing, the KMSA spring fashion show will cost students and faculty $5. A portion of the proceeds will go to The House, a local charity which provides shelter for homeless teens on the Western Slope. The show will feature original music by Andy Bowen, which guitar contributed by Mass Communications student Brett Baroffio. There are 17 models participating in this semester’s event in comparison to 11 last semester. Below is a link to the featured model interview for today with Skylar Anne Smith.
