While studying sociology and history at Gordon College, I was also a staff writer at The Tartan, which is the student newspaper. I had multiple responsibilities at The Tartan. Starting off, I was an op-ed columnist, writing about institutional policies that some students considered problematic. Soon after, I became a web developer and staff writer. As staff writer, I worked on an investigative project with other student journalists, writing stories about extra-curricular and co-curricular departments that were damaged by lay-offs, precipitated by conflict between faculty and staff with college administrators. The project was called “Define: Gordon.”  This hyperlocal investigative work taught me how to sensitively and fearlessly report on events that affect a small community. The following links are articles I wrote for The Tartan.
