Erin Gavle | Newsletter Editor

Erin Gavle is a freshman at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications studying Newspaper and Online Journalism. She has lived in the United States, South Korea and Germany, and has no idea where she'll end up after she graduates from Syracuse. In the mean time, Erin enjoys talking to interesting strangers, taking photos, eating dried mangoes, and writing tangential bios that hint at an existential crisis. Who knows where journalism will take her in the future? She sure doesn't. Yet.
