Alex Greenberger, Editor-at-Large

Alex Greenberger is an Editor-at-Large who has been at WSN since the first weekend of freshman year, bringing him to his sixth semester at the newspaper. He is now a senior, which makes him an old-timer by college standards, and he was last semester's Arts editor. When he is not bothering other people on staff with his crusades about why Scandal is a great TV show or what French film everyone needs to see, he can be found studying Art History and Cinema Studies. But, because that would be a boring note to end a biography on, it should be noted that he has fun, too. He goes to Chelsea and Lower East Side galleries often, and he enjoys discussing movies and books with his friends, preferably over a cup of Mud Coffee.
