Who? Michael Peyko, Assistant News Editor

Year: Junior

Majors: Communication and Psychology 

Minor: Religious Studies

Q: Who would you want with you if you were stranded on a deserted island (& why)?

A: I would want my family.  My relationship between myself and them may be a bit unorthodox, but that is why I love them and I could never image living without them.

Q: Who is your favorite author/what is your favorite book?

A: “The Elements of Journalism” by Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel.  Just kidding. I don’t really read books but when I do they are usually sports history or sports biography books written by people like Mitch Albom, Ian O’Connor, and Mike Lupica.

Q: What is the one thing that should be taught in school that isn’t already?

A: How to live your life to the absolute maximum potential 101. Spoiler of how to get an A in the course, just be yourself and don’t worry about what other people say or think about you.

Q: What is the #1 most played song or artist on your iPod?

A: Anything by the Foo Fighters. Not far behind is Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers.  I am really into the alternative music genre that came out of the Northwest in late 80s and early 90s.

Q: What is your goal for the Quad/your section this semester/year?

A: To provide the most accurate, interesting and timely news stories that our great readers deserve. As well as offer my support and experience within journalism to our other staff writers so as to ensure they always put out the best story possible.
