I recently interned at The Chronicle of Higher Education, which reports on colleges and universities in the United States. I wrote a number of long form stories, including features and investigative pieces. Among them is a story about Muslim chaplains who receive extra pressure to address Islamophobia on campus. I also wrote about the “ring by spring” culture at Christian colleges, in which some students feel pressure from their college to get engaged by the spring of their senior year.
I also worked with The Chronicle‘s breaking news team, which taught me to write an article in a day. An example is a story about hecklers who disrupt guest speakers and the debate between college administrators and state legislators to control them.
The following articles is a list of articles I wrote while interning:
