The independent student newspaper at the University of Illinois since 1871

The Daily Illini

Jessica Bursztynsky

I am a Journalism student focusing on News-Editorial writing with a minor in Political Science. I transferred into the University in fall 2016 from a community college and began working as a news reporter at The Daily Illini. After spending time as a reporter, I was chosen as the News Editor for the 2017-2018 term. If I'm not working on a story, I'm usually alternating between episodes of The Office and Parks and Recreation, eating breakfast foods or convincing myself to go on a run.
