At Middlebury, I served as editor in chief and president of the student newspaper, The Middlebury Campus, from 2018-19. Before that, I worked as managing editor (2017-18) and news editor (2016-17).
As news editor in 2017, I had my reporting on the student protests of the controversial writer Charles Murray go viral. My Periscope live stream of the protest has been viewed on YouTube more than 160,000 times. I reflected on covering the protest for the New York Times in 2017. In the years after the protest, Middlebury was repeatedly in the news for speech related issues, and as an editor and reporter, I led the paper’s coverage through several national controversies. Read my reflection on the role of student journalism in the midst of a campus controversy from 2019.
As editor in chief, oversaw the production of the paper’s first ever “Election Issue,” a preview to the 2018 midterm elections, featuring interviews with the incumbent governor of Vermont, his general election challenger, Vermont’s congressman, election experts, and more. Read my note explaining why we decided to publish it here, and the entire issue here.
