The Collegian photo desk has the opportunity to cover all kinds of events every year. This past year, some events, in particular, stood out. From the first game at the new on-campus stadium, before it had a name, to some pretty intense political situations, out photographers captured the big moments. 

Collegian photographers were at the Women’s March, the March for Our Lives, Take Back the Night and CSUnite. They were at sold out games and games without a head coach. They were at drag shows and fashion shows and powerful speeches. They were there when Charlie Kirk brought controversy to campus and they were there when there was a bomb threat in the library. 


Collegian photographers were there for the good and the bad last year and are chomping at the bit to get back in the mix this year.
