Senior Farewell: Kristina Schenck


Kristina Schenck was the Editor-in-Chief of the Hilltop Views.


Hi readers. Thanks to you for your readership. We write for you. And I’m not lying when I say it has been a pleasure to serve this community as a student journalist for the last four years—I’ve loved every minute of it.

This includes my newfound caffeine immunity and recurring AP Stylebook nightmares. Don’t worry I still love coffee and copyediting. Life is even better when I can have both of those things at the same time.

I like to think I hit a big turning point sophomore year when I finally learned how to write for an audience, and that I couldn’t write about trees every week. Then I realized this year that I would be content if I could write about trees for the rest of my life. Either I haven’t come far at all or this is some strange full circle situation. Whatever it is that’s enough about me.

To the staff: Thanks for your commitment and for making the many late nights in the Andre Hall so much more bearable with your ridiculous wit and endless sass. Jena Heath, the words ‘thank you’ simply cannot capture my gratitude for your unwavering support and guidance but for lack of a better phrase, thank you a million times over for everything you do.

Bye for now but certainly not forever.
