Writer Biography: Rob Oldham








Rob Oldham, Assistant Senior Editor

Rob is a second-year student from Cumming, Georgia studying political science. Rob is involved in intramural sports and is a fantasy football genius. While he enjoys the writing process, Rob may not be cut out for journalism as it tries to cage his frequent use of equivocation and selective presentation of facts when making his arguments. Considering this, Rob would probably be much happier with a career in law or politics. He enjoys reading about history and politics and exploring the great outdoors in his free time.
