Graphic Design

Lily is working towards her minor in Graphic Design. She has applied what she has learned already to creating t-shirts, newsletters and promotional items for her sorority as the Director of Public Relations. Below is a link for a newsletter she created in PDF format or you may view it on issuu.



Lily has worked for The Maroon since the fall of 2016. She started as a contributing writer, but now works as the Assistant News Editor. She still writes not only for The Maroon, but Loyola’s magazine The Wolf as well.

You can find her staff profile for The Maroon and all of her published work here.

Lily has gained valuable experience in the broadcast world by working on Loyola’s one to three minute long news segment they produce every weekday. Lily has anchored, wrote scripts, directed, produced, prompted and created graphics for The Maroon Minute. She loved getting to know every aspect that went behind creating a newscast, but enjoys telling the stories most. Below you can click on the link below each image to watch her anchor.
