Bella Eckburg, Opinion Editor

Bella Eckburg is a third-year journalism student with a minor in criminal justice and the insatiable need to jump headfirst into any situation deemed wholly embarrassing.

Eckburg grew up in Rockford, Illinois, but went to high school in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where her family now lives. She has always wanted to be a writer, and journalism — coupled with her never-ending stream-of-consciousness word vomit — allows her to ask important questions, tell impactful stories and talk to strangers. 

Eckburg enjoys writing openly about her experiences with sex and relationships and examining feminist topics and the impact that media has on young women. In her free time, she loves bingeing trash TV and painting with watercolors — she's a big believer in balancing work and school with mindless brain activities.

As opinion editor, Eckburg hopes to encourage students to explore their voices and opinions while also learning AP Style and strengthening their journalistic skills. No matter what your opinion is, it has a place on the opinion desk, and Eckburg promises to cultivate a safe space to bounce ideas around. 

Her favorite part about working at The Collegian is being surrounded by so many passionate and interesting people who want to tell important stories about our community.

Eckburg is so excited to continue growing with and learning about The Collegian, and she hopes you’ll consider coming to the newsroom to inquire about becoming a reporter or to strike up a conversation.
