2012 Graduate / Journalism
Erika Spicer is a senior journalism major at Penn State University. A member of The Daily Collegian -- Penn State's independent, student-run newspaper -- she has experience in reporting and copy editing. Along with newspaper journalism, Erika is also interested in magazine writing, which she is exploring at an internship at Campaigns & Elections magazine in Washington, D.C. this summer. Traveling to Rio de Janeiro for a reporting trip this past spring break proved to be a challenge, but the extremely rewarding qualities of the trip has her hoping to resume traveling and reporting internationally in the future. In her spare time, Erika also enjoys photography, hiking, blogging and trying new foods.
