Collegian Managing Editor Shelby Holsinger (Ashley Potts | Collegian)

Shelby Holsinger is a senior at Colorado State University studying journalism and media communications with a minor in ethnic studies. She will be The Collegian’s managing editor for the 2018-2019 academic year.


Holsinger started her career in student media as a newspaper page designer for Ball State Daily News at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Transferring to CSU gave Holsinger the opportunity to work for a student media company that she has always admired. She joined the College Avenue Magazine staff as a designer at the beginning of her sophomore year and became editor-in-chief of the publication her second semester working for the publication.

After creating a solid base for College Avenue, Holsinger wanted to expand her student media experience and applied to be the assistant design editor of the Collegian during the 2017-2018 school year, then went on to become the head design editor the same year.

Both College Avenue and The Collegian have given Holsinger eye-opening experiences on how to smoothly run a print publication, which she hopes to use as the managing editor this year.
