As a senior, this is my second year writing for the Evanstonian. I play baseball and run cross-country, and also participate in a variety of other groups and clubs here at ETHS. While writing for this publication definitely requires time and effort, it is absolutely possible to participate in a variety of clubs and activities as well. The Evanstonian has allowed me to explore many of my interests through an investigative lens, and has also helped me understand the value of quality journalism in the digital age.
