The Daily Illini

Lucas Oswald
I'm a senior majoring in English and Creative Writing. Previously, I worked as an opinions columnist for The Daily Illini from September 2017 until March 2019. In my free time, I enjoy reading both contemporary and classic literature, writing terrible fiction, watching “Game of Thrones” and slaughtering my friends at Euchre. If I'm not doing any of these things, I'm probably procrastinating.
