Meet the Spring 2024 Editors

Dora Kreitzer, Editor-in-Chief / The Bucknellian

Editor-in-Chief: Dora Kreitzer 25 (she/her)

Having been a member of the Bucknellian since her first year, Dora Kreitzer will be taking over as The Bucknellian’s Editor-in-Chief. Throughout the years, Kreitzer has served as Print Presentation Director, Print Managing Editor, and Digital Managing Editor. 

“My biggest goal for the semester is for the paper to reflect the experiences, stories, and values of the student body,” shared Kreitzer. Alongside other student managing editors, Kreitzer oversees all Bucknellian meetings and paper sections. 

As words of encouragement for new writers, she shared, “Students should join the Bucknellian not only because it’s fun, but also because it’s a chance to make their voice heard and to write about things worth reading about. As cliché as that sounds, writing for the paper is a chance to contribute to the campus conversation, bring attention to things that deserve it and explore personal passions and interests while also getting to work with an amazing group of people.”
