NMSU Round Up

Ariana Parra

Ariana Parra is a sophomore at NMSU and is returning to The Round Up for a second year. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Spanish and hopes to become either a lawyer or an FBI agent.  Ariana was born and raised in Las Cruces, NM and graduated from Oñate High School in May of 2018. She is a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha chapter on campus and is currently holding the Treasurer position. 


At Oñate, she was the Student Body President and discovered journalism through the mass media program in which she was the broadcast anchor. Ariana also was a setter for the volleyball team and threw the javelin for the track and field team at Oñate. She participated in many other clubs at Oñate such as HOSA, Key Club and National Honors Society.


Although Ariana is not a journalism major, she has always had a love for writing and is excited to see what The Round Up has in store for her this year. Her favorite stories written thus far include features “MLK Day offers opportunity for NMSU students to reflect on Kings impact” and “The hidden gem inside NMSU’s advising center; Belmont University athletics Hall of Famer Jana Williams.”
