Congrats to Joanna, (whose feature on depressing nail polish color names is very funny) for being featured on what I’d argue is the best curation of arts, culture and comedy of our generation - this isn’t happiness.
I sometimes try to explain to people who aren’t from Indiana about how incredible the people and institution of the daily print student-run newspaper Indiana Daily Student is, but I can’t do it justice. Fortunately the overachievers of the already exceptional bunch are doing the job for me. On top of Joanna — who seems to now own Buzz Feed — Allie is at Facebook, Nina is becoming internet famous and Brian writes for the Onion, among others. Eamonn and Ryan write and talk for ESPN. Brittany is in Hong Kong and Brian’s in Bejing — for the Wall Street Journal. Michelle is reporting for the Chicago Tribune. Cordell might still be at Bloomberg. I think Katie’s at the Washington Post. Kevin’s about to graduate from what might be the fourth best MBA program in the country.
This list is not exhaustive (sorry to those I left out — this is from memory) and is limited to just a few graduating classes. I am not yet sure why I got to work side-by-side with these people, but I know I’m better for having done it.
