Larson Binzer, Senior Editor

Larson Binzer is a CAS Senior studying Politics and Journalism. She's originally from a small town outside of Dallas and, despite her love of language as a journalism major, will insist to her dying day that "y'all" is in fact the correct way to address a group. When she's not in class or at the office, she can be found in a dance class or sitting in the back MUD, desperately trying to satisfy her caffeine addiction. Her hope is to work for a political campaign then attend law school when NYU springs her into the real world come May 2016.
