As a journalist, I am interested in balanced narratives. I think that the media often presents readers with only one side of a given story. I find it not only more fair, but also more interesting, to enrich stories with several different perspectives. A potential story lead that I hope to follow this semester is how students feel about the unique housing situation this year—specifically, how a larger than usual class of 2018 and class of 2020 are affecting housing, and how the Castle’s condition is affecting room availability on campus. Off campus, I am interested in town-gown relations, and how Brandeis police relate to students and student groups along South Street.
