BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The University of Colorado at Boulder is asking students not to wear Halloween costumes that might offend others.

Dean of Students Christian Gonzales said in a message to students that dressing up as someone from another culture can lead to hurtful portrayals of other cultures.
