Every Oredigger is a comprehensive campus-wide initiative to encourage wellbeing — in all its dimensions — among all members of the Colorado School of Mines community, students, faculty and staff. Together, we pledge to be a community where personal and collective wellness is prioritized and everyone is encouraged and empowered to be the best versions of themselves. 

If this is an emergency and/or there is a potential threat to you or someone else, please dial 9-1-1

We all make mistakes sometimes. Even Mines professors, administrators and students—despite our apparent awesomeness. But you know what? Failure is OK. Nobody is perfect. In the moment, however, it can be hard to remember that.

At Mines, we climb together—and we can all learn from failure.
