The Prowl

Lauren DeWitz

Lauren DeWitz, Prowl Opinion Editor

Lauren is the name and journalism is my game.

I can be described as a senior, features editor and professional music listener. If you like any sort of classic rock, we will get along just fine.

"Lauren is the universe mixed with a little star dust and 80s music." Prowl editor and reporter Hailey Carner said.

“Wrong decade, Lauren,” adds Cap. “Go back to the 60s. There’s no place for you here in the future!”
