Collegian Assistant Opinion Editor Ryan Tougaw (Ashley Potts | Collegian)

Ryan Tougaw is a sophomore deciding between double majors in political science and economics, and biology and psychology. He is the assistant editor of the opinion section for the 2018-2019 school year where he handles social media, content creation and editing.


Tougaw’s main passion is policy and interpersonal behavior. He enjoys analyzing commerce and trade within and outside of the United States, as well as learning about trends that influence price, supply and demand.

Typically, his articles focus on empirical evidence of outcomes and steps forward rooted in quantifiable values that can easily be put in place to resolve conflict. His articles also tend to stay away from emotive responses to issues, and virtually never indulge in ad hominem or condescending terms to the focus of the article, but rather seek to facilitate a more policy-centered critique

In his spare time, Tougaw enjoys fishing, hiking and Golf, and is very excited to help elevate the content of the opinion desk. 

Collegian Assistant Opinion Editor Ryan Tougaw can be reached at letters@collegian or on Twitter @rjtougaw.
