Meet your Editors!

Audrey Wahl: Collins Columns Co-Editor

Hi! I'm Audrey Wahl, one of the co-editors of the Collins Columns! The Columns are a weekly publication consisting of news and events around Collins, as well as various forms of student submissions. Our job as editors is to take YOUR submissions - writings, thoughts, opinions, art, photographs, etc. - and compile them (with other important Collins information and news) into the Columns layout each week. The Collins Columns centers around a weekly theme, though submissions can be made on any topic. A little bit about me - I'm a psychology major from Normal, Illinois. When I'm not in class or studying, you can find me working on the Columns, barista-ing at our very own Cheshire Café, or just hangin' around the many great public areas of Collins LLC. As an editor of the Columns, I'm here to share your contributions and make your voice heard!
