As a committed advocate for providing students with opportunities to share their voices, Clasen found her love for design when creating layouts and graphic art for her high school literary and visual arts magazine, The Looking Glass. Now she volunteers her knowledge of design to multiple on-campus magazines with her most recent position being graphic designer and typesetter for CSU’s Greyrock Review. 

“(Clasen) works to capture the expression of complex human thought by focusing on creating meaningful experiences through design.”

Working alongside industry trailblazers within The Collegian has strengthened Clasen’s ambition for innovation and creativity. She works to capture the expression of complex human thought by focusing on creating meaningful experiences through design. She dreams of one day founding her own design firm for creatives to consult and create all in one place.

Growing up in Fort Collins, Clasen fell in love with the outdoors and connecting with others outside. She is happiest with her life-long friend and sister Natalya Clasen, cooking and chatting the hours away.
