Roman Hladio, Editor-in-Chief

Roman Hladio is a senior from Wexford, Pennsylvania. He is studying English with a creative writing emphasis, and completing requirements for a Journalism in the Public Interest minor on the side. He's been on staff far longer than is healthy, and will tell you to remove all oxford commas within a 30 mile radius if you mention newswriting to him. Contrary to Lottie's belief, Roman is the best Library Services Desk employee in this hemisphere. If you happen to be hiring a copyeditor or have a vacant position which requires in-depth Adobe InDesign knowledge, he is accepting offers. Roman's looking forward to continuing to produce and publish his creative works long after he finishes his comp in December. He likes reading Hemingway and Chaucer, but will never tell you that if you ask.
