The Campus

Marley Parish, Editor-in-Chief

Marley is a junior who is majoring in English and minoring in political science and journalism in the public interest at Allegheny College. This is her third year working on the paper. She is from New Castle, PA, a small Pennsylvanian town that is neither new nor host to a castle. Somewhat less disappointingly, the town is the "hot dog capital of the world."
