Candelario is a sophomore studying journalism and media communications. She started at The Collegian in fall 2016 as a news and arts and culture reporter, and she has worked as the news director since May 2017.


The Collegian’s selection committee consisted of Pete Waack, Rocky Mountain Student Media CEO; Jim Rodenbush, Rocky Mountain Student Media Advisor; Hannah Copeland, KCSU station manager; Erin Douglas, Editor-in-Chief of The Collegian; and Seth Bodine, Night Editor of The Collegian. 

Throughout her time at The Collegian, Candelario has primarily covered city and university issues. She has experience obtaining public records, reporting on sensitive political and cultural issues and covering crime. 

Candelario took over as the primary student government beat reporter in September when the Associated Students of Colorado State University began an impeachment effort of the president. She has also reported on several different campus events and issues, including the Islamic Center vandalism in 2017. She covered the CSU Drag Show three times and wrote about Take Back The Night in 2017. 

Candelario succeeds 127th Editor-in-Chief Erin Douglas, who will graduate in May. Douglas will train Candelario for the remainder of the semester, and job applications for the new editorial staff will open in March.
