    • Getting around campus: 
      • A fare-free campus bus (Route 80) circulates through campus with primary stops at the Memorial Union, Union South, UW Hospital and Eagle Heights. Service runs from approximately 6:15 a.m. until 2 a.m. Route 84 is a limited service route supplementary to Route 80, stopping in Eagle Heights weekday evenings. Two evening routes (Route 81 and 82) circulate in nearby neighborhoods from 6:30 p.m. until 2 a.m. Routes 80, 81, 82, and 84 schedules and maps are online at mymetrobus.com.

      • Madison B-Cycle: Madison BCycle is a great way to get around town or campus. Madison BCycle members can pick up a bike at any station and return it to that same station or any other station when they’re done. Using their BCards or the BCycle App, members can unlock a bike in seconds. Returning a bike is even easier. Just roll it into a dock and walk away.

  • CEUs (Continuing Education Units) will again be offered through Colorado State University (CSU) Pueblo for the main AEE Conference (not all pre-conferences!).
    • Colorado State University Pueblo in partnership with the AEE is proud to offer attendees of the 2023 AEE International Conference the opportunity to gain Continuing Education Units (CEU) issued under the seal of CSU Pueblo’s Division of Extended Studies.  CSU does not have different classifications of CEUs. CSU does not have CMEs or CLEs, and instead has generic education units. CSU transcribes these units on a transcript for participants under the non-credit workshop, CONED 500. These generic education units would be seen as verified on a transcript.
