I'm too early. Typical, I thought as I sat silently in my car, eagerly waiting for the day to begin.

Katie Goodrich '17: Experiential Learning for Collegian Editor Comes Outside an Actual Classroom

As a senior Journalism major, this is the first time I've held the same position for more tan one semester on the Butler Collegian, the student news organization.
