NMSU Round Up

Marianne Salas
Marianne Salas is a senior at NMSU pursuing a double-major in English and Government with a supplementary major in Law & Society. She will be attending law school next fall. Born and raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico, Salas graduated as valedictorian from Gadsden High School in 2016. Aside from her position at the Round Up, Salas is an active member of the College of Arts and Sciences Student Ambassadors and serves as Vice President for the English Undergraduate Student Organization and as Secretary for the College of Arts and Sciences Council. She has been a member of Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2016. 


Salas began working for the Round Up in August 2018 as a staff writer and is excited to step into the role of political writer for the 2019-2020 academic year. While not a Journalism major, Salas has always had a passion for writing. Her favorite stories that she’s written so far include “NMSU organization decreases feral cat population on campus,” and “NMSU’s Chile Pepper Institute to possibly develop chile peppers for NASA.”


In her free time, Salas enjoys reading, working out and spending time with her friends and family.
