Serena Bettis, Content Managing Editor

Serena Bettis is The Collegian's content managing editor for the 2021-22 academic year. Bettis uses she/her/hers pronouns and served as The Collegian's news editor for the 2020-21 academic year and was a news reporter and copy editor before that. Going into her third year at Colorado State University, Bettis is a transfer student double majoring in journalism and political science and minoring in Spanish.

As content managing editor, Bettis oversees all written content produced by The Collegian's desks, which includes arts and culture, cannabis, news, opinion and sports, as well as the copy desk — but Bettis will never know as much about grammar and AP style as The Collegian's incredible copy editing team. She loves her job at the newspaper and is extremely passionate about supporting the management staff and creating a positive work environment, especially when that involves creating color-coded calendars.

Bettis' favorite aspect of journalism and the work The Collegian does is connecting with the community. Having grown up in Fort Collins, Bettis loves seeing CSU students engage in the City's culture and discovering the way everything in a community links together.

This year, Bettis is committed to The Collegian's new view as an alt-weekly and the constant mission to produce stories that help readers stay well-informed and feel a little less alone in the world.
