Julianne Center currently serves as co-editor of the Arts & Culture section of the Herald, where she pretends to be artsier than she really is. She previously served as Senior Staff Writer, covering the Faculty and Staff beat. A freshman hailing from the mountains of Southern California (yes, they exist), she plans to concentrate in English Non-fiction writing and Environmental Studies. While not at the Herald, you can find her hugging trees, cuddling raccoons, reading poetry in coffee shops, or doing something else you’d probably roll your eyes at. Her very concrete plans after graduation include living in a trailer in the middle of the woods somewhere and writing something.
