Once you finish taking the quiz, count up your numbers for each number response. Your greatest total score will determine your closest editor. If you scored mostly …
1s: You are Sam Rosenblatt, Print Managing Editor. You are not the most outspoken member of the team, but when you speak, everyone turns to listen. Like Sam, you are always working hard and are driven to reach your goals, constantly motivating others to reach their full potential. Not only that, but you are the king of Michael Scott quotes, even if you’re still only the Assistant to the Editor-in-Chief.
2s: You are Ruby Gould, Editor-in-Chief. Just like Ruby, you are a natural leader who captivates audiences when you speak your mind. Balancing fun and work can be difficult, but even when things get stressful you always know how to keep things light and brighten other people’s days. With your continuous supervision, communication, and dedication to the newspaper, you ensure that The Bucknellian runs smoothly week in and week out. Who knows? You may be the next EIC in the near future!
3s: You are Janey Woo, Print Presentation Director. Even when work gets stressful and you have a lot of late nights, you never forget how much you love your job. Whether it’s updating The Bucknellian “quote board” or waiting eagerly for the fancy new computers, you are passionate about your work and are always striving to make sure every issue is the best it can possibly be, from the layout, to the graphics, to the articles themselves. Just as long as you get the right fries.
4s: You are Julie Spierer, Special Features Editor and Social Chair. You are completely unpredictable and everyone admires you for it. Never fazed by editorial stress, you add your own unique brand of comedy to every Production Night, even if you occasionally get sidetracked picking up staff dinners from Bostwick. Like Julie, you are unapologetically yourself: a social butterfly, a talented section editor, or a detective for hire.
