Junior Managing Editor

Noland Blain

Junior Creative Writing Major

Honestly, I don’t know what direction my future will take me. I know for certain that I love writing. I know that I love reading the work of others. I know that whatever I do, I will be tied to the literary arts in some way, even if my job does not involve creative writing. Élan will impact my future regardless of my career of college major because the skills I learn in organizing the book will give me foundations for all of my future jobs. Communication, organization, work ethic—all of these traits are pertinent in any career. I will carry my Élan experience wherever I go.
