The end is here. This issue of the Collegian marks the culmination of the work of this year’s staff. We would like to thank all those who have turned to the Collegian for their daily news, RamTalk and Sudoku satisfaction. Our staff has worked hard to represent, as best we could, the student voice of Colorado State University.
Whether you grabbed a copy to keep you awake during class, or to get riled up at Ryan Chapman and write a scathing letter to the editor in response, we hope no matter which part of the paper was your favorite, we provided you with the type of newspaper that you craved.
Sometimes as journalists we have to report the bad news, like a fraternity being busted for alcohol infractions or our sports teams losing on the road, but when it comes down to it, we are proud to be CSU Rams. We take just as much pride in Ram tradition and our institution of higher learning as anyone else.
We might not miss the late nights (technically early mornings), the crashing computers or the hate mail, but we will miss the satisfaction of overhearing someone in our class talking about how good our story was, or how cool the photo on the front page looked.
We feel privileged that we could entertain and inform you and tell your stories of triumph and tragedy.
Thank you for picking our paper off the racks every day – we hope we served you well. And we wish you, our readers, the best of luck in all that you do.
