The Rocket

Megan Bush
Representatives from The Rocket came into my FYRST seminar class one day, so I put my name on a sheet of paper and never looked back. I’m now entering my fourth year writing and my third year on staff at The Rocket, and I’m excited to continue bringing the faces and places of Slippery Rock University into the spotlight during my senior year.

After two full years on staff, I’m proud to say I finally won an award from the Society for Collegiate Journalists AND figured out how to place a text box in Adobe InDesign. (Just kidding, I knew how to do that… sort of.)

When I’m not hidden behind my massive Mac in 220 ECB or running around campus trying to track down elusive sources, I’m singing and dancing with the Musical Theatre Society or spinning and tossing large objects in the air at Marching Pride and Winter Guard rehearsals.

I like watching Instagram videos of Corgis, ordering the mac and cheese dish at restaurants, and the Assistant Photo Editor, Jack.
