  5. 5. Melanie Deziel – Editor-in-Chief<br />Looking past the ugly bricks in the background, you can see the shine of inspiration in Melanie’s eyes…here’s what she had to say about her job…<br />“I am a Journalism student at the University of Connecticut. I am a hardworking student but also dedicated to my work at The Daily Campus, the university's student newspaper. I'm big into technology and I love using new media and social media to stay up to date on news, gadgets and more. I am on twitter and facebook and I keep a blog about youtube videos called The Viral Vitals.”<br />
  6. 6. Brian Zahn – Associate Managing Editor<br />"I think being an editor at The Daily Campus suits me because I'm utilizing skills that I've learned, such as copy editing and designing, and applying them to a real, daily paper. Whereas my primary interest outside of The Daily Campus is reporting news, being the associate managing editor gives me a more holistic experience - I get to cultivate new writers' skills, think about more aspects of journalism than just the stories themselves and also learn things about how to improve my own writing. I love being surrounded by like-minded individuals who I can share my ideas and experiences with on a daily basis."<br />
  7. 7. PurbitaSaha – Focus Editor<br />"I like focus because as a writer I'm not limited to facts and the other actions of other people. I can integrate creativity with journalism, more so than a news or sports writer."<br />

If I wasn't writing about sports, I would have a lot of trouble doing any other craft in this field. I worked here since freshman year and worked my way up the ladder. By senior year I lucked out and became the sports editor."<br />
  9. 9. Nick Rondinone – News Editor<br />This enthusiastic reporter from Fairfield, CT didn’t have much to say, except for a witty comment…<br />"I chose to be the news editor because I am a reporter."<br />
