Taylor Paumen, Sports Director

Taylor Paumen is the 2021-22 sports director for The Collegian and has been with the newspaper since February. She started out as a volleyball recap reporter and was promoted three months later. Now going into her third year, she is working toward a major in journalism and minor in sports management. 

As Collegian sports director, Paumen takes care of finding content for the week, pitching the ideas to her reporters and working with the sports editor to get the articles ready for the pros at the copy desk. 

When joining the team eight months ago, Paumen was excited to go to the games, but like you’ve heard before, COVID-19 had other plans. While attending home games was possible, the lack of fans made it a hard environment to be motivated in. 

Now fans are back and the excitement is higher than ever in the sports arenas, and the ability for the whole sports desk to go to games is the best feeling. Paumen is most grateful for the memories created with the entire Collegian team and their work together to create the best content. 

When coming to Colorado State University, Paumen started as a health and exercise science major but quickly tried to find something new. She found writing and sports were her passions, and The Collegian welcomed her with open arms, reassuring her that this is where she was meant to be.
