Jillian Little, buzz Editor

Hi, people! I’m a current junior studying Integrative Biology from Chicago, Illinois. On top of school work, I’m one of the assistant editors and writers for buzz magazine. I love writing about classic rock, obscure TV shows, and events in the Champaign-Urbana community. Get me on the subject of science memes, and I’ll talk for hours!
