The Rocket

Eric Davies
My name is Eric Davies and I am returning to The Rocket staff for my third year and moving from Multimedia Editor to Editor-in-Chief. Unlike other staffers who sought out a position with The Rocket, I honestly stumbled into contributing for the multimedia section my freshman year and I wouldn't take back a single minute I have spent with this organization since. I came to Slippery Rock University for its newly updated TV station but I stayed for its world-class newspaper. As the first Editor-in-Chief who started out in the multimedia section, I hope to bring a unique perspective to the paper while maintaining the high level of quality produced by our award-winning staff. Outside of The Rocket, I am a brother and past president of Kappa Sigma and a student worker at the TLC desk in the Bailey Library.

Eric Davies, Editor-in-chief
