Colorado State University has produced many successful individuals both in sports and out of sports. Colorado Governors, senators, astronauts, authors and highly successful businesspeople have graduated from CSU. One former Ram diver though might be the only CSU grad to become the editor in chief of a major national magazine.
For men, they might not realize that ELLE is likely the Sports Illustrated or ESPN magazine of the fashion world. Robbie Myers has made her way to one of America’s top magazines and ranks as one of the school’s most successful graduates.
Myers came to CSU in the fall of 1981 as a senior, and was a member of the diving team in the early days of the High Country Athletic Conference. She received her letter in the 1982-83 season and was one of the more experienced members of the team in her lone year. She graduated in 1983 with a degree in political science.
Myers began her professional career in the magazine industry with Rolling Stone, and later with Andy Warhol at Interview. She climbed the ladder in the industry, and by 1998 was named the editor-in-chief at Mirabella after working at ELLE as senior articles editor.
In 2000, Mirabella closed and was taken over by ELLE; Myers was then made the editor-in-chief of ELLE and has served in the position for 12 years. Since taking the position, she has helped the magazine grow into the information age with apps for the iPad and expanding on ELLE.com.
In 2008, Forbes magazine voted Myers No. 2 on its list of Most Powerful U.S. Fashion Magazine Editors, and in May 2009 Gotham named Myers a Media Power Player. With over 5.6 million readers and 1.5 million visitors online per month, Robbie Myers has made CSU proud to say she is our Ram Alumni Athlete.
