The proclamation read in part: “… The Rocky Mountain Collegian reflects the unique character of the … community in Fort Collins with meaningful distribution in the larger Fort Collins community and dedication to cover local issues and candidates … “

The proclamation was presented at a City Council meeting to Julia Rentsch, the Collegian’s editor-in-chief.

The Collegian was founded in 1891 by seven students at what was then Colorado Agricultural College. It first published in December of that year.
