SUPPORT STUDENT MEDIA
Hi, I’m Holly Liptak, a senior journalism student from Akron and the editor-in-chief of The Burr this semester. My staff and I are committed to bringing you interesting, humorous and hard-hitting stories that tap into current events, trends and the lives of those who have made a home in Kent, Ohio. We are full-time students and hard-working journalists. While we get support from the student media fee and earned revenue such as advertising, both of those continue to decline. Your generous gift of any amount will help enhance our student experience as we grow into working professionals. Please go here to donate.
Sara Crawford is a senior journalism student from Lakewood, Ohio, with minors in public relations and political science. She is the editor-in-chief for The Burr, this being her fourth semester. In addition to working for The Burr, she is the opinions editor for The Kent Stater and an intern for the Cleveland Magazine. She has always had a passion for writing, starting with short stories about her friends and dog throughout elementary school and advancing from there. She is excited to see what this semester holds for both The Burr and herself! You can follow her on Twitter at @sara_crawford1 to learn more about her journey in journalism!
