My name is Meg Metzger-Seymour and I am a junior graphic design major with a minor in media studies. I started working at Rocky Mountain Student Media as a Collegian page designer when I was a freshman. During this time I was also occasionally worked with College Avenue as a designer. At the end of my freshman year, I was selected to become the Collegian’s design editor. This position offered the opportunity to help produce a daily newspaper while also providing me with the experience of working under a nightly deadline. At the end of my year as design editor, I decided to move into College Avenue more permanently as I found magazine design to be more enriching. I worked as the creative director for College Avenue in Fall 2019 and now have stepped into the role of Editor-in-Chief.
Although design is my primary focus, I have a strong interest in journalism. I worked in student media throughout my high school career and am honored to be able to work with RMSMC.
I believe that journalism plays an essential role in informing the public. I also believe that design is a form of communication and is as crucial to a publication as its content.
I am excited to continue working for College Avenue and I hope to push the magazine in terms of content and design.
Jake Sherlock likes his music loud, his wrestling professional and his journalism available on-demand. He enjoys breaking news tweets, long reads, investigative reports, satirical spins, thoughtful columnists and hot sports takes.
Sherlock joined Rocky Mountain Student Media as the student media adviser in September of 2019. His primary duties are to help RMSMC students produce quality journalism that informs and enlights the CSU and Fort Collins communities. His secondary duties are to make sure the candy bowl is always filled. He’s much better at his primary duty than his secondary.
He holds a bachelor’s in journalism and a master’s in communications from the University of Wyoming. Sherlock was the editor of his college newspaper and held a variety of other writing, editing and photography positions within student media. He also spent more than 10 years working with student media at the Missouri School of Journalism and at Laramie County Community College.
Outside of student media, Sherlock has experience in print and web design, copy editing, public relations, marketing, reporting, sports writing and pizza delivery, but he’s really out of practice on the pizza thing.
