Taking the place of The Comment’s current Editor-In-Chief, graduating senior Kate Wallace is junior Gregory Dudek. Dudek is graduating in spring 2014 and is majoring in communication studies with a minor in public relations. After graduation he hopes to work in the field of journalism.


Dudek became involved with the Comment in the fall of 2010 as a freshman.  He started out as the assistant sports editor, then his sophomore year was the sports editor, and this semester became the managing editor.


“The Comment offered a great experience for me in the journalism field while also being a learning tool to help me progress as a journalist,” said Dudek.

Dudek has a deep appreciation for the guidance he has had from each editor-in-chief he has worked with, saying he would not be the journalist he is today without their influence and support.

Kate Wallace has watched Dudek grow into his position as editor-in-chief and feels he is the perfect fit for the role.

“He has gotten out of his comfort zone and originated in sports but got interested in all aspects of the paper,” Wallace said. “He’s taken a nice leadership role within the group.”


While Dudek hopes to progress in the positive direction The Comment is moving in by bettering the writing of stories and staff reporting, he also hopes to maintain The Comment’s reputation as a positive source that is enjoyable to read.


“I learned that being an editor-in-chief of a student newspaper can be difficult at times, but it is also one of the more rewarding experiences anyone can have during their college years,” said Dudek.
