This past summer, Slifka worked three jobs and spent his free time studying for the LSAT. After Colorado State University, he plans on taking the exam and starting his journey to law school.
Beyond the newsroom, Slifka loves spending as much time as he can in the outdoors with friends while fishing, hiking, mountain biking and snowboarding. When he is not enjoying these hobbies, it is not uncommon for him to be playing ultimate Frisbee on campus or practicing his musical skills at home.
Slifka is ready to take this publication to higher levels on the digital platform and to continue to craft his journalistic skills. He also is looking into transmedia storytelling and incorporating that within The Collegian’s content.
