Meet the editor: Abby Vander Graaff, content managing editor

Abby Vander Graaff is The Collegian’s 2020-21 content managing editor. She is a fourth-year student studying interdisciplinary liberal arts, Spanish and anthropology. Basically, this means she specializes in both integrating diverse perspectives to solve complex problems and justifying to virtual strangers “what she is going to do with that.”

Vander Graaff started working at The Collegian on a whim and stayed because of the lessons she learned and the family she found there. She believes that having a critical, complete and reliable picture of the world empowers people to make informed decisions on what they want to do in their own lives. She values suggestions on her work from others, especially if they have a different perspective than her. Vander Graaff hopes that she can help make student journalism more equitable and inspire her writers to ask important questions.

“Most importantly, Vander Graaff understands that her work at the newspaper isn’t about her — it’s about you, the reader; you, her community. She will do her best to serve you well.”

In her free time, Vander Graaff likes to bake, ski and enjoy nature with her friends and family. She feels most like herself when she is traveling abroad and hopes she can do that again soon. She will be your best friend forever if you laugh at her jokes.

Most importantly, Vander Graaff understands that her work at the newspaper isn’t about her — it’s about you, the reader; you, her community. She will do her best to serve you well.
