Meet Erika Walburg, a Digital Journalism major with a minor in Political Science. She’s getting ready to head into her sophomore year and will graduate as part of the Class of 2016. Today she’ll introduce us to her Endicott-focused blog and provide a few examples of what she covers. She has some great ideas for what to do in the Beverly areas surrounding our campus!
I have to admit, I was caught a bit off guard when asked to take on the Editor-in-Chief position of the Endicott Observer this year—I had only been a part of the school newspaper staff for one short year prior, and let’s just say I was far from my journalistic prime. I quickly had to go from the quiet freshman, timid and unsure of her writing skills, to the main voice of each Tuesday night meeting. In over my head? Just a tad.
