From Lauren Patrick: ‘Every minute I spent in our newsroom was incredible’

Name: Lauren Patrick
College Newspaper: The Red & Black
Where I Am Now: Editor at PrettySouthern.com
Being the Editor-in-Chief of The Red & Black was a dream come true. Every minute I spent in our newsroom was incredible. Those were truly my glory days at UGA. Being an independent student newspaper is so critical to have a truly free press un-thwarted by university administrators. We held the university accountable for its actions, challenged the president (with whom I had more than one uncomfortable meeting) and gave students a voice who might otherwise not have had one. #SaveStudentNewsrooms
