Lillian Barkley, Editor-in-Chief

I'm a junior in Journalism with a minor in Gender and Women's Studies. Since I joined the DI as a freshman, I've been features editor, assistant copy chief and a paid reporter. I'm so excited to be editor-in-chief this year. I have family in the area, so the University was my second home growing up, and I love being able to strengthen my connection with the community through journalism. I'm also a music-lover, a casual foodie and a definite cat person.
