The independent student newspaper at the University of Illinois since 1871

The Daily Illini

Charlotte Carroll
I’m a senior majoring in news-editorial journalism with minors in French and public relations. A Southside Chicago native, I've got two favorite clubs: The Go-Go White Sox... and whoever plays the Cubs. As a freshman, I started working at the Daily Illini covering club sports and then two seasons of Illini football. When I'm not at The Daily Illini, you can find me munching on baguettes (or at least 50 cents Jimmy Johns bread) and wishing I was back studying abroad in Paris. [email protected] | @charlottecrrll
