The Rocket

Victoria Davis, Managing Editor and Copy/Web Editor
Hi! My name is Victoria and I am currently serving as the copy/web editor for The Rocket. In layperson's terms, this means I tell people they're grammatically incorrect and tweet a lot. In my terms, it means I have the privilege to be an integral part of the journalistic process all from the comfort of my Twitter dashboard.

When I’m not on Twitter or being liberal with a red pen in The Rocket office, you can usually find me in the Women’s Center, where I work on programming that promotes education on intersectional equality, or in Spotts finishing up my majors in English Literary, Film, & Cultural Studies and Gender & Diversity Studies. After graduation, I plan on getting my Master’s and Ph.D. with the goal of teaching at a small liberal arts university, very much like the one I will be leaving in less than a year.
By the end of this year, I will have spent 75 percent of my undergraduate experience with The Rocket, making it an integral part of my college experience. I am so grateful for an experience which has sharpened my skills while reintroducing me to journalism, a field which will always have a special place in my heart whether or not I am lucky enough to work in it again. While I will be saddened to leave The Rocket after only two more semesters, I am so excited for another year of breaking news, tweeting polls, singing Kate Bush in the office, and, of course, breaking out my red pen a few final times.
