Hilltop Views

I am Elizabeth Ucles Writing and Rhetoric (Journalism concentration) major, Spanish minor and Life & Arts co-Editor of Hilltop Views.  This is my senior year at St. Edward’s University. I’ve been writing for Hilltop Views since the second semester of my freshman year, and I’ve been the Life & Arts editor since my junior year. My favorite beats include arts and entertainment (duh), news and politics. When I’m not writing, my hobbies primarily include enjoying the outdoors, exploring the city or drinking too much coffee. After graduation this May, my goal is to work at an NPR affiliate radio station or at a magazine or newspaper.
