Jackson Rudoff
Jackson is a second-year student majoring in political science and cognitive science. He is known around his suite for having the middle name “Earl” and being the most unemployable of his friends. When he isn’t regulating other people’s opinions, he is “practicing” his viola, working as a tour guide or hunting for cheap vinyl records. This is his first year at the helm of the opinion section after previously serving as a columnist. His other writing experience includes working at the CWRU writing center and submitting edgy slam poems to contests in high school because he genuinely thought they were good at the time.
