The Bucknellian

Elise Covert
Applied Mathematics ‘20 Kennett Square, PA A basketball player for 10 years growing up, Elise came to the University looking for a way to stay involved with athletics, and joined The Bucknellian as a contributing writer for the sports section during her first semester. Returning to the newsroom for her second semester as sports co-editor, she is looking forward to the usual amusing banter of the editorial board and to convincing people to actually care about Bucknell athletics! (Plus, writing and editing is a welcome change from all the numbers she deals with as a math major...) On campus, Elise is involved in research in the psychology department, is a student leader for B.A.C.E.S. -- a spring break service-learning trip to the Dominican Republic -- and considers herself a permanent member of the basketball student section. In what little spare time she has, Elise enjoys photography, whipping up a mean chocolate buttercream frosting, hiking, and being one of those notoriously obnoxious Philadelphia Flyers fans.
