Lauren Pallemaerts, Copy Chief

Lauren Pallemaerts is copy chief for The Rocky Mountain Collegian, assisting the night editor in running the copy desk and editing just about every piece of content for style, grammar, syntax, ethics, punctuation, accuracy and readability.

Pallemaerts came to Colorado State University as an English student from Seattle, but she recently declared a journalism and media communication major with an English minor to combine her passions for storytelling and contributing to an informed society. The journalism department has made her feel welcome and connected her with a way to serve the CSU community directly.

Now in her third year, her interests include writing, reading, history, linguistics and traveling; her writing ranges from fiction to movie reviews and news, including features on local bookstores and the performing arts. Pallemaerts studied journalism in Oxford, England, through a New York Times summer program and plans to study abroad at the University of Exeter before she graduates.

She is grateful The Collegian saw what it did in her because it's allowed her to learn the ins and outs of a newsroom from early on in her college career. Pallemaerts' favorite part of her job is working alongside her peers to create a product by students, for students.
