Farewell from Sam, the design editor

Editor’s Notes: Traditionally graduating seniors working at The Collegian are given the chance to write a farewell note at the end of their tenure at CSU. 

Graduation is quickly approaching and I’m freaking out. I’m going to have to say goodbye to a lot of things at Colorado State University. I’m leaving behind late nights finishing projects in the visual arts building, hours “studying” in the Ramskeller and what felt like days spent cranking out essays in the library. Most importantly though, I’m leaving behind my position at The Collegian.


This last year, working for The Collegian has been amazing. From starting as a designer to being the assistant design editor, I’ve learned so much from working in the newsroom. Things I  couldn’t have learned anywhere else. It has been a privilege to work with such hardworking and talented people, a group of people who care about each other.

Through this position I have gained so much respect for the journalism community. Their passion for what they do is infectious. Through thick and thin these people continuously pushed out amazing content, and did it with such enthusiasm that I couldn’t help but grow to love within the chaos of the newsroom.

The nights were long but the people who worked with me made the job easy. Thank you to everyone who supported me and got me excited to be a part of such a cool community. I’m sad to leave a cool job, but I know that the experiences I have had here will stay with me forever.
