Nick enjoys singing, writing and saying receipt while pronouncing the “P,” and will forever be caught up on Emma Watson.  He is a sophomore music education major from West Chester, Ohio.

Hollis headshotFeatures Editor: Hollis Conners

Hollis is a senior nursing major from Franklin, Ind.  She started as a news writer her sophomore year and served as features editor her junior year.  She loves Harry Potter (especially the books, because the movies weren’t that great), cleaning instead of studying, puns and introverting in her spare time.  She despises the word “totes,” melodramatic Facebook posts and when people get tattoos of quotes from books they haven’t really read.  She doesn’t style her hair because Hermione Granger doesn’t do that, and Hermione is everything Hollis aspires to be in life.

Mac headshotPhotography Editor: Mac Schroeder

Mac Schroeder is a sports management major hailing from the suburbs of Detroit.  He is entering his junior at Xavier and has been working for the Newswire since his freshman year. Mac also has a passion for music, tattoos and all Detroit-based sports (except the Lions…go Packers!).  Fun fact: Despite being photo editor, he does not particularly enjoy taking pictures of people or nature and would rather grab a snapshot of a worn-down building or a graffiti-infested wall.

Camie headshotHead Copy Editor: Campbell Tuel

Campbell is a senior English major and writing minor from the little town of Beloit, Ohio.  She loves backpacking, reading, riding her horses, listening to strange music and drinking lots of tea.  She dislikes most seafood, polyester clothing, not getting enough sleep and the amount of time it takes to thaw out frozen chicken.
