Managing Editor: Jasmine Johnson, 20, is a senior journalism major and graphic design minor who is the shyest extrovert you will ever meet. She buys oversized flannels from Goodwill, dances in her chair whenever she eats the garlic parmesan pasta special and substitutes the label of procrastinator with deadline-driven.

MollyNews Editor: Molly Korzenowski 20, is the news editor this year. She is a junior Journalism and Graphic Design major. She enjoys creating celebrity portraits with chalk pastels and is never seen with less than 5 rings on her fingers. Her go-to midnight snack is cold pizza. She would love to start her own business one day — she is not a fan of taking orders.
