Remembering Joseph Kitchin Philpott

Philpott, Joe

Colorado State University is a big campus with a sizeable student body — so big that it’s easy to feel alienated, and at times completely alone, as if you are an insignificant participant in the day-to-day activities of the college, and nobody would miss you if one day your seat remained vacant.


It may be easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the crowd as students rush to get to classes, but it’s important to remember that every single member of our community is valuable, and we care about each and every one of you.

Over the weekend, we all lost our fellow Ram, Joseph Kitchin Philpott, who died in an avalanche near Cameron Pass. His love for adventure and zeal for life should inspire us all to never take a second of our time here for granted and truly live life to the fullest.

This backcountry skier with an incredible love for the outdoors was an inspiration to those he knew in life, and continues to be in death with his light living on through others.

Our deepest condolences go out to everyone whose life was impacted because of this tragic accident.
