Priddy Experience Directory

2023 WSO Intern


Name: Koray Gates

Pronouns: He/Him/His

Year: Sophomore

Hometown: Taos, New Mexico

Major(s) / Minor(s): Political Science Major, Journalism Minor

How we get involved at CC: Outdoor Ed (OE) Backcountry Leader, OE Marketing Coordinator, Justice Watch Club Leader, Intramural Soccer, and NSO Intern

Fun fact: I’m a Canadian dual citizen!

Favorite Block at CC: During 8th block, I took Intro to Journalism with Corey Hutchins and we were able to tour the buildings and speak with journalists from two local newspapers, the Colorado Springs Gazette and the Colorado Springs Indy. 

What I’m Most Excited For During NSO: I am excited to meet new students and to go explore the Colorado outdoors while helping everyone feel at home in Colorado and at CC. Priddy is a really great place to make new friends and ease the transition to a new place and new school!

Words of Advice for Incoming Students: There are so many awesome things to do on campus and clubs to join and adjuncts to take, but be careful to not overbook yourself! Take your first semester to explore and find things that you are interested in doing or that you would enjoy. It is nice to have some free time first semester to get into the groove of classes and life at CC, and to meet a whole bunch of awesome new people.
