  • A May 1st deadline Colorado College students and alumni set last spring to commit to divesting its investment portfolio from fossil fuels has come and gone, to the dismay of students pushing for change. "It's really too bad to see the board take such a lackadaisical stance on this," said Ben Criswell, a senior.
