The 35th Annual International Intercollegiate Mining Games were held over the last weekend of spring break from March 13-17, 2013, in the Q parking lot at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden.

“It goes by many names: ‘The Crisis,’ ‘The Dark Years,’ ‘The Walking Plague,’ as well as newer and more ‘hip’ Titles such as ‘World War Z’ or ‘Z War One.’ I personally dislike this last moniker as it implies an inevitable ‘Z War Two.’ For me, it will always be ‘The Zombie War.'” – Max Brooks, World War Z
According to “The Colorado Transcript,” in April, 1914, Val Turley moved to Golden along with his wife. On September 1 of that year, Turley died of heart disease a mere ten miles inside the Jefferson County line, in Golden citizen and former city council president J. Lofton Davidson’s car. Davidson reported the death to Dr. Pate and had a death certificate made. He then placed a call to Golden, asking that Mrs. Turley be notified of Turley’s death. Turley was cremated on September 3.
Many geeks at Mines struggle and toil in their studies in the hopes that, one day, they will be able to graduate in one piece and leave to seek their fortunes out in the real world. Others, perhaps very wisely, decide that life outside of the school is not all it is cracked up to be and choose instead to jump back into the Mines graduate program. These students, like Steven Kuhlmeier, are not so different from the other geeks at this school. They are only really separated from the undergraduates by more experience, more stress, more debt, and more people who have no idea what anything they are studying actually means.
