Grant Torre ‘17, Co-Editor-in-Chief email@example.com
Grant Torre has enjoyed being hopelessly lost in all that Swarthmore has to offer, but is extremely nervous about creating a Sophomore Plan. At Swarthmore, Grant walks backwards several times each week (all for tours, of course), texts actors who are late for rehearsals that he stage manages, sleeps on the LPAC couches between RnM rehearsals, and plays with adorable babies in the Cognition and Development Lab. Grant hopes to one day work in Television Development and has an uncanny love for Google Calendars.

Allison is an honors student studying political science and film. In addition to working tirelessly for The Daily Gazette, she is a producer at War News Radio, a Swarthmore project dedicated to covering international conflict.

Sona Kumar ’17, Arts Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Sona Kumar decided that she should be a Psychology major after her twin brother told her that he “tunes her out when she starts talking about psych studies.” She hails from the great state of North Carolina, so when she’s not talking about psych studies, she enjoys drinking sweet tea, watching Jersey Belle (and pretty much every other show) on Bravo, and complaining about Pat McCrory.
Jenny Gao ’18, Assistant Arts Editor email@example.com
Jenny is a prospective Engineering major from Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Her official name is just Jenny because her parents were not aware of the formal “Jennifer”. She works out and dances to justify her unhealthy eating habits.
Arjun Vishwanath ’16, Opinions Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Arjun is a double major in Political Science (Honors) and Mathematics from Boston. He plays on the squash team at Swarthmore. He has a reputation for knowing your senators, governor, and potentially your congressperson and much more! A lesser known fact about him is that he has fantastic taste in music – he can recommend some bands you’ll be sure to love!
Anna Livia Chen ’17.5, Assistant Opinions Editor email@example.com
Anna Livia is thinking of majoring in some honorable or dishonorable combination of History and Math/Stat. Her academic schedule is kind of all screwed up, so who even knows when she’ll graduate. She isn’t too worried, though, because if the whole Swarthmore thing doesn’t work out, she plans on becoming a service dog trainer while using her rudimentary tinkering skills to design a dog-friendly kayak.
Barney Desmond ’17.5, Assistant to the Assistant Opinions Editor
Barney Desmond–or as his admirers call him, “BD”–is new to Swarthmore and is currently deciding between a Small Animal Biology Special Major and an Education/Caretaking double major. Though he is only 2 (14 in his species’ years), he plans to graduate high school and college in the next four years, because his breed is just that intelligent. BD is working a full time job while attending school, which is both demanding and rewarding. His dream is to chase a water bird.
Vishnu Gupta ’18, Co-Multimedia Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Vishnu is a prospective Econ and Math double major. He comes of India, where they correctly call Math as Maths. These nuances greatly agitate him. He refuses the accept the imperial system, and occasionally miscalculates the weather because of his stubbornness to use Celsius measurements instead of Fahrenheit. Vishnu greatly enjoys good literature, movie, and music. His favorite book is A Clockwork Orange, favorite movie Reservoir Dogs, and loves The Beatles to an incalculable extent. Also, his favorite TV show is Doctor Who.
Natasha Chak ’18, Co-Multimedia Editor email@example.com
Natasha is a prospective Political Science and History double major from the real city that never sleeps, Hong Kong. Like her partner Vishnu, Natasha still fails to understand the use of the imperial system and never bothered with Fahrenheit. When she’s not cramming essays last minute or finishing up reading for her classes, she enjoys reading, watching tv, eating a lot, and just not doing anything in general. And of course, photography.
Abby Holtzman ’16, Consulting Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Abby is a Psychology major and potential English minor with interests in narrative medicine, spoken storytelling, and mental health advocacy. She enjoys working as a Writing Associate, playing guitar at campfires in Crum Henge, and interviewing interesting people.
Lesia Liao ’18, Social Media Editor email@example.com
Lesia is a prospective neuroscience major from Wilmington, Delaware who talks about herself in the third person – what a snob. She spends her time at Swat searching for in-tune pianos, helping out with StuGov events, and dreaming of Bryn Mawr dinners. In her spare time, she enjoys surfing – both on and offline, feeding her Sheltie peanut butter, and entertaining the masses with her painful puns. She requests that people follow her online and sometimes in real life.
Sonya Chen ’18, Social Media Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Sonya is a prospective Political Science and Math major from Hong Kong, though she’s still exploring thus they (the majors, not where she’s from) are subject to change. When she’s not in front of her computer Tweeting and Facebook-ing DG news to you all, she’s probably on a squash court, walking around campus backwards (giving tours), or trying to reconcile being healthy with her love for dessert.

Aspiring Computer Science and English major with as many hopes and dreams as required credits for the double-major.
