Luis Velazquez

Hey! My name is Luis Velazquez and I am a junior majoring in journalism with a minor in LLS. I have been involved with the DI since fall 2018. Outside of the DI and school work, you can catch me working at the UGL, drinking coffee or hanging out with my APsi brothers and sisters. I am a big horror movie fan! Deciding to write for the DI my sophomore year was life changing. Not only did I find a new passion, but also made good friendships along the way.
