Opinion: If CU Boulder will not invest in independent student news, maybe you will

The Colorado Sun: A decision by the University of Colorado Boulder’s media college could leave one of the largest Colorado campuses without any independent student voice. With your help, we can prevent that from happening.  

Three years ago I walked into the newsroom of the CU Boulder’s online student-run newspaper, the CU Independent, as an unsure freshman. I knew I wanted to write and I loved storytelling, but was journalism the right path for me? 

Fast forward to today and I’ve written close to 100 stories, served in multiple editorial roles (including as the CU Independent’s editor-in-chief), freelanced photos for a national news outlet and completed a nearly four-month-long reporting internship at the Daily Camera newspaper in Boulder. And I owe it all to the CU Independent.
