Coordinating Editor Previously The Ubyssey's news editor for two years, Sam drinks an (absolutely unhealthy) amount of coffee in order to fuel her obsession with writing. She takes a special interest in reporting on matters of sexual assault and other crimes, public opinion, and university governance. She occasionally finds the time to go to classes for her political science and creative writing degree. Fuel her narcissism by following her on Twitter and sending her tips.
