Kim Rice, Copy Chief

Kim is a junior (ahhhhhh) double majoring in Journalism and Politics. A born and bred New Yorker, she does say things like "cawfee" and "dawg" but please don't ask her to repeat the words for you, it's kind of annoying. You shouldn't be bumping into her really, but from a safe distance you can find her drinking an iced coffee, walking around, just taking everything in. Follow her on Instagram or Twitter @k_r_630 to see and hear random thoughts and pictures of things you can easily see and think yourself.
