My name is Brianna Morie Price, previous editor-in-chief, and I have worked at The Collegio for three-and-a-half years, though it is time that I say goodbye. I entered as a member of the staff on my first day of freshman year. Within a few months I had worked my way up to an editor position as copy editor; I held this position for a little over two years, after which I moved up to managing editor for a semester before becoming editor-in-chief for a year.
When I was first looking at colleges to attend during my senior year of high school, I knew Pitt State was the one for numerous reasons, though one was the fact that I could gain real world hands-on experience through The Collegio that I could use to further myself in my field of study. I can truly and wholeheartedly say that I have learned so much from being part of this newspaper staff. I would like to say that I grew right alongside The Collegio, as I experienced working with two additional editor-in-chiefs and numerous other staff members—who each taught me different things I would not have learned had I not join this staff—and I experienced the newspaper turn into what it is today. For this and so much more, I am so immensely grateful for my time with The Collegio. I leave the newspaper in good hands, though, with Lilliana Black as editor-in-chief and the rest of the amazing editors, designers, reporters, and photojournalists.
As communication: multimedia journalist major, my experience with this newspaper and its staff is priceless; whether I go further into the journalism field or decide to go in a different direction, I will always have this experience and the memories from the last few years. I wouldn’t have changed a thing about my time with The Collegio. I hope others can say the same thing about their time spent at Pitt State. Now here’s to finishing my last semester of college in one piece. Remember: Once a Gorilla, Always a Gorilla.
