Erin is originally from El Paso, Texas and is a Journalism student at Colorado State University with a focus in public relations. After graduation she hopes to combine her social media savvy with her love of music and travel working for production companies or music venues to organize and market major events and festivals. When she’s not at school or working, she can be found in one of three places: rock climbing at the rec center, reading out on the oval, or drinking copious amounts of coffee at her favorite coffee shop.

She has been on the JUR staff since 2013, and has also worked in Dr. Silvia Canetto’s social psychology research lab since 2012. When not involved in academic pursuits, Emily works as a Youth Director for a local church, pretends to be good at yoga, and spends too much time being harassed by her very judgmental cat.

Associate Editor
Ben is an aspiring author with four books down and way too many to go. When not neck deep in literature, Ben is usually playing volleyball or videogames, filming a Youtube series about a discount hit man or simply kicking back and trying to understand sports. Ben’s most Coloradan moment was when he climbed four 14ers in one day. If Ben lived in a perfect world, he would be able to make a living off of his writing, but until that day comes, his only goal is to make it get here sooner.

Associate Editor
Michaela loves reading and especially writing. I am eager to combine a dual major in journalism and biology into a career communicating technical information without using jargon. In the meantime, life consists of lectures and writing classes, chemistry labs and computer programs. Of course, Michaela will always make time for a cup of coffee with family and friends.
