How do you see the evolution of the newspaper in the next five years?
I see there being a greater focus on online content, especially when it comes to breaking news. However, I do believe newspapers will still exist. Newspapers will have to stand out — with visually appealing graphics, iPhone-friendly QR codes and interesting features.
Five reasons you love your school:
1. 1. There is never a single day that goes by when I say, “I’m not sure what to do today.” My campus offers a variety of clubs and events for any type of personality.
2. I’ve met some of the most wonderful and hardworking people while working for the student newspaper, The Daily Collegian. I get to spend every day with people who push me to do better.
3. It’s Happy Valley — everyone smiles.
4. There is such unity on this campus. Even though there are 40,000 students, I feel like we’re all one big family.
5. This past year at THON, Penn State raised $12,374,034.46 in the fight against pediatric cancer. I get chills every time I think about how much my school raised.
