Marion Edwards (’22)
Major: Media Studies
Hometown: Chicago, IL
I am a member of the women’s Track and Field team and a news anchor for Loras College Television. I work with the admissions team as well.
The media studies program and track and field program are what brought me to Loras. Craig Schaefer (’89), professor of media studies, and Jill Specht, coordinator of media operations, were extremely welcoming and ready to help me succeed in my studies. Track and Field Head Coach Matt Jones (’05) and the track team welcomed me with open arms and gave me a chance to run with some amazing people.
Upon graduation, I plan on working in the news field. I have been exploring my options but am currently looking to become a news reporter.
During my time at Loras, one thing that has stood out to me is the dedication that both the track and field program and media studies program have towards bringing the best out of their students. Long hours in the media lab, weight room, and track have grown my discipline and motivation to become my best self.
Loras College Forward Thinking will be spotlighting Black students, including Marion, all month on Twitter.
