College Media Editor

Class of 2017

As a native Chicagoan and a Public Policy major specializing in urban policy and politics, Christine has made writing and journalism an integral part to her four years at the University of Chicago. She has spent almost as much time at the Chicago Maroon student newspaper as a News Editor as on her classes, aside from when she studied abroad in a Spanish language-intensive program in Barcelona. Outside of writing for the College website and the Maroon, Christine rows for the crew team and samples all of the chocolate pastries from cafes and bakeries within a three-mile radius of her apartment.
