Senior Lifestylers Say Goodbye

By The 2014 Lifestyle Staff

Jackie Torkelson, “A Goose and A Gander” writer:
“How did four years go by so fast? I could not have asked for a better college experience here at WC, and I have both amazing friends and professors to thank for that. I could not have done it without your love, support, and constant encouragement. Also thank you to my wonderful boyfriend Matt Taylor for over four years of joy and endless inspiration for this column. I’m so glad I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of The Elm family; it’s been a fantastic ride that I won’t soon forget.”

Cara Murray, Movie/TV reviewer and writer:
“I have had a blast writing for Lifestyle in The Elm for the past couple of years. Not only have I had the opportunity to work with amazing people here on the staff, but I have had the chance to write about some of my favorite topics. From film reviews to television tropes, I hope you have enjoyed reading as much as I have writing.”

Harris Allgeier, “Level Up” columnist:
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first and final year here as The Elm’s videogame columnist. Due to time limitations and personal budget constraints, there’s no way I could play or write about every major release, so so I’ve tried to use my column to bring attention to games that I feel might get overlooked or to discuss issues pertinent to gaming that aren’t always addressed in the mainstream press. I’ve had a great time writing and working with The Elm’s wonderful staff and my fabulous editor, and I hope I’ve gotten at least one reader to play something they might not have before. See ya!”

Mike Liberto, “A Goose and A Gander” writer,
Distribution Manager
“I’ve been working for The Elm for two years, first as distribution manager, then as the Gander. The Elm has given me such incredible experiences, and even though I worked behind the scenes more than anything, I truly felt like I was a part of a family. I just want to say thank you to Kay Wicker and Grace Arenas for being incredible bosses, Jackie Torkelson for writing by my side, and most importantly, Todd Cooley, who delivered the paper with me at 8 a.m. every Friday for two years. Keep carrying the banner.”
