Meningitis scare spreads to CU-Boulder

BOULDER – A meningitis scare at Denver’s Auraria campus has spread to Boulder after health officials announced that the student was at a party there less than a week before dying.

Officials said the 20-year-old Metropolitan State College was from Broomfield and would be identified Monday. The student died Thursday, prompting warning from school officials that students should take seriously any flulike symptoms.

Authorities in Boulder say that at least seven CU students were at the April 2 party with the student who died. Five of seven have received preventive treatment.
