Editor-at-Large Rachel Ruecker
Rachel is a Senior Editor here this semester, whatever that means. She really likes proving to people that she's complicated and as such spent last semester as the Sports Editor while also being a drama major in Tisch. She is happy to report (ha!) that she made it out alive, if barely. She is also from Canada.That's important. She also tweets a lot. Former Editor-in-Chief Alex Bazeley once said she was his favourite Twitter follow so like, follow her.
