Ravyn Cullor is a native to Fort Collins, with roots at Colorado State University stretching back to the 1930s.
Cullor grew up in Poudre School District and was introduced to journalism while attending Rocky Mountain High School. Her senior year of high school, she ran her school’s newspaper and received an award for excellence in journalism.
She started reporting for Rocky Mountain Student Media her first semester at CSU with the news department of KCSU. The next semester, Cullor started reporting for The Collegian as well. She reported for both organizations before being hired as the web director for KCSU and the news director for The Collegian.
Reporting allows Cullor to meet new people, learn new things and, most importantly, give a voice to those who feel they’re being ignored. She loves the opportunity to learn how people from different walks of life see the world around them.
Outside of the newsroom, Cullor loves spending time outdoors, from hiking with her dog to stargazing in the mountains. If she can’t wander into the mountains, she wants to be sitting at a cafe in Old Town with a cup of coffee, good company and a good people-watching spot.
Cullor is excited to help bring a year full of high-quality student reporting to CSU campus. She wants to venture into new mediums of news storytelling. She also wants to bring new groups on campus into the pages of The Collegian and, if they’re interested, into the newsroom.
