Allison Stubblebine, Entertainment Editor

Allison Stubblebine is the Entertainment Editor. A Gallatin Sophomore concentrating on studying only cool things with the dream of being Editor in Chief of Rolling Stone, she works five jobs and spends her free time crying, sleeping, and politely asking her dog Aslan to stop barking. She will tell you she is from Buffalo, but really she is from a small town nearby where cows outnumber people. Allison most likely did her makeup while sitting on the N train this morning while listening to a playlist made up of various versions of Sia’s “Chandelier” and balancing a coffee cup between her feet, and her aesthetic reflects this, but please do not point it out, because she will cry.
