It’s that time of the year again! The frost is lifting, flowers are blooming, and seniors are preparing to walk across the stage and receive their diplomas. KCSU is graduating 13 seniors of our very own this spring semester; we took a minute to ask them about the most important lesson that they learned at KCSU.
Emily Mashak, KCSU news director and co-host of the Rocky Mountain Review, said the most important lesson she learned is “to be confident in your own creative decisions, but also be open to constructive criticism.”
Her co-host and co-director of the Rocky Mountain Review, Joe Leighton, mentioned that he enjoys the strong sense of community at the station.
“The most important thing I learned is just how valuable a good community is at producing and making awesome content,” said Leighton. “It’s good to know that you can count on the people around you.” Leighton has been at KCSU for two years, and in addition to news, he has enjoyed being a DJ and having a radio show.
“My time at Rocky Mountain Student Media Corporation has been filled with valuable lessons, it’s hard to choose just one,” said AJ Frankson, also known as her DJ name, Janet Earth. “But I think that the most important lesson I’ve learned has been patience and collaboration.” AJ has been a DJ at KCSU for a year and has been involved in the promotions, local music and video departments at the station.
KCSU is hosting a spring DJ-athon fundraiser from April 15 to April 21 to help more CSU students get involved and learn about everything from confidence to patience, and build a community along the way.
