The article, “‘South Park’ airs episode set in Fort Collins,” by Taylor Felver was the arts and culture desk’s second most read story from the 2016-2017 school year with 1,636 reads.
When writing about the Fort Collins “South Park” episode, I had no idea that it would become the second most read article of the year. My friends and I have always watched the show here and there. But, I remember for this specific episode, that almost everyone I knew watched it just to see how they would depict Fort Collins. I thought it would be cool to write this article because my dad went to South Park High School in Fairplay, Colorado. I really enjoyed writing the piece and rewinding that episode at least a dozen times to spot the Fort Collins shout-outs like the Aggie ‘A’ or the breweries, and I’m glad this article became popular.
