Alex Hasenkamp, Arts & Entertainment Director

Alex Hasenkamp is the new arts and entertainment director for The Collegian. Hasenkamp is a sophomore transfer student from the University of Oregon and is originally from Seattle. She has some prior experience in news writing from her high school but is new to the college paper scene.

She finds writing for arts and entertainment is a good tool to utilize in order to learn more about her new surroundings of Fort Collins. It is a great way to connect with people and find fun and artistic ways to spend her time. Hasenkamp thinks supporting your local artists is an important part of being involved in a community, and she will do her best to inform the CSU students of how they can best participate.

Hasenkamp started out as an art major her freshman year at UO, then switched to journalism and media communication for her second year. She hopes to continue working at The Collegian throughout college and hopefully get some journalism-related internships over the summer. She currently does not have a declared minor but is leaning toward pursuing one in French.

Career-wise, working for a newspaper after she graduates is not her top priority, but continuing to engage with some branch of journalism is her current plan.
