Writer Biography: Alex Vanden Heuvel

Alex Vanden Heuvel, Assistant Senior Editor 

Alex is a third year student who insists upon triple-majoring to cover up his horrible ability to commit to making difficult decisions. He studies public affairs journalism, political science, and international affairs; he’s also in the Public Affairs Professional Certificate program, on the Applied Politics track. In particular, he enjoys covering state and local politics, because that’s where the business actually goes down. Lately he’s accumulated some experience as a campaign staffer, so maybe that’s what he’ll end up doing for a living. That or political journalism. Or something else. Who really knows.
