Rosella Eleanor LaFevre, Editor-in-Chief
Education: Studying magazine journalism at Temple University
Extracurriculars: Work a day job in a departmental office at school; run M.L.T.S.; do freelance writing for other publications; blog at The Happy Millennial; oh, and I just self-published my first novel, Calixte, a young adult romance.
Favorite food: It would have to be either my fried potatoes (pan-fried in butter with sweet onion and seasoned with salt, pepper and rosemary) or Brussels sprouts and sweet onions pan-fried in bacon grease and seasoned with garlic powder. Just yummy!
Favorite movie: 10 Things I Hate About You
Favorite band: It’s a dead heat between Hanson and No Doubt.
What you love about journalism:
The best class you’ve taken: Politics of Identity, a general education sociology course. I devoured the readings and learned so much.
One tip to help others survive college: Get an internship, start a business. Do something outside of class. I’ve learned so much more by doing than I’ve learned in any class.
I wear this over and over: A gold necklace with a curlicue-shaped pendant with a purple stone. My boyfriend gave it to me our first Christmas together and it was the first piece of jewelry a partner ever bought for me.

One tip to help others survive college: Don’t pass up any opportunities that come your way. It may take hard work, but you’ll regret it if you don’t go for your dreams.
