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.


Interns (Summer 2014)

Isabella Fidanza tends to be a little too ambitious and a little too talkative, but she means well and enjoys making people laugh. While she’s always been interested in publishing, she’s also enamored with history and museum settings. She sympathizes with sassy sidekick characters, and thrives on city life and making friends from different cultures.

Hans Goerner is an English major with a special fondness for interactive fiction. His prepaid flip phone belongs in a museum, but he responds promptly to both email and smoke signals.

Maggie Heath is a sophomore Global Journalism and English double major. She doesn’t know how to ride a bike and never successfully swung from the monkey bars as a child. She thinks she turned out okay anyway.

Sana Karim is an English major and working on her psychology and writing minors. She loves food more than the average person, adores traveling, and if you mention a particular show, movie, or book, she won’t shut up about her favorite character.
