Meet the editor: Anna Schwabe, copy chief

Anna Schwabe

Anna Schwabe is a third-year equine science major and is excited to work as the copy chief for The Collegian this year.

Growing up in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, Schwabe spent plenty of time on the numerous lakes and in the various forests around her home. She used to try communicating with squirrels and birds, but they didn’t have much interest in listening or conversing.

Although she studies horses, she has long been interested in language, especially in its written form and as a way to tell stories. Given that, it’s no wonder that she enjoyed copy editing for The Collegian when she was first hired last fall. 

When she is not contemplating comma placement or catching up on schoolwork, Schwabe may be found reading books, practicing polo — the horse kind — or biking on Spring Creek Trail. She finds satisfaction in relying on her bike for transportation rather than on gas-powered vehicles despite icy conditions in the winter.

Schwabe looks forward to working with this year’s talented editorial team to bring readers relevant stories from the community. Perhaps she will even discover the secret to exchanging tales with chipmunks.
