Shelby Niehaus

My name is Shelby Niehaus. I am a senior English (with professional writing concentration) and English language arts major who wandered into journalism for love of grammar and order. This year I am the opinion editor, though my heart lies in copy editing. In my copious (read: not copious) free time I like to read, play video games and play French horn. When I am not in the newsroom I can usually be found wandering lost around Buzzard and Coleman Halls; please direct me if you find me. I can be reached at
