The Campus

Alex Weidenhof is a senior history major and an ardent defender of the serial comma. Oddly enough, though he enjoys journalism and has been on The Campus for three years, he has not taken a class on it, mainly because he forgets to during registration every semester. Alex mainly covers topics around Public Safety, which he enjoys because, like history, it gives him a cynical, pessimistic view of the world. He has also reported for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, writing on important subjects such as professional cornhole, tugboats and Wild West reenactors. As a former copy editor, he is a pedant who is precise about commas, subject-verb agreement and dangling modifiers, though as this bio shows, he cannot edit his own writing.
