Luke Contreras

When Luke Contreras '13 looks back upon his CSU Experience the number one word that describes it is "Pride." From his time spent as drum major of the CSU Marching Band to being an orientation leader, Luke has developed a true sense of what it means to be a part of something bigger then one's self. "Being able...
to represent CSU has been the opportunity of a lifetime," said Contreras. Whether preparing the marching band for an upcoming halftime performance or teaching incoming students university traditions, Luke constantly strives to give something back to the school he serves. "CSU has inspired me to not only give my all to the green and gold, but to give my all in every facet of life," said Contreras. "I am grateful for the opportunity, and proud to be a CSU Ram."


Our Faculty

Jason LaBelle

I believe that fieldwork under the cool blue sky of an October afternoon is the best way to learn about archaeology. The discipline allows my students and I to study ancient hunters while hiking along alpine mountain tops, or instead walking through deep arroyos filled over thousands of years by silt...
and clay. To be in the field is to experience the same places and environments of those who once lived there. One of my greatest joys is in teaching the archaeology field school, where students ask questions about the past, collect data, and then return to campus to try to answer those questions. Most of the story of the human past is one without words, but one that can be witnessed through archaeology. I think this is a great way to speak to the distant past. But what will we hear?”
