Co-ops (Spring/Summer 2013-2014)

Brittany MacLean is an International Area Studies major focused in Literature, Culture, and the Arts. She is pursuing a dual minor in both Spanish and Writing so that she can simultaneously indulge her love of travel, writing, and literature. She believes that if you let the world change you, then you can change the world.

Josh Weiss is a public relations major who often wishes he could live the romantic film noir life of a private eye. Enjoying the musical stylings of Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, and The Bee Gees, he has often been told that he was born in the wrong decade. He’s inclined to agree.

Staff (Spring 2014)

Rachel Croke is a senior at Drexel majoring in Communications with a concentration in Corporate and Public Relations and a minor in Legal Studies. She loves to travel, try new food, and is a lifelong Philadelphia sports fan.

Jen Jolles is a ferocious, coffee-addicted, literature-loving junior English major. Her interests include acoustic covers of pop songs, cupping coffee, and living with intention. Jen’s just really excited to be here, spending even more time in another windowless office in MacAlister Hall.

Alexa Josaphouitch (Joe-sa-fo-itch) is an English major from South Philly. Her favorite things to do are read, write, and obsessively listen to show tunes. On any given day, she can be found in the Drexel Writing Center humming a Broadway tune with a book and journal. She hopes to have a career in publishing, if it still exists.
